Get Some Cohones

Headline: Lawmaker Comes Down on Plastic Gonads

Annapolis, Md. The measure was filed in the General Assembly Monday by Delegate LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washingon, who says children shouldn't be exposed to giant plastic gonads dangling from pickup truck trailer hitches.
The thing I find most funny about this, aside from the words, "giant, plastic gonads," is the thought of how many people actually have these things jangling from their bumpers that would prompt such an action in the first place.

I don't blame Myers one bit for attempting to grab the bull by the, um, horns and promote a little decency there. I would imagine it is a rather disgusting display, but would it be any less foul to hang them from the rearview mirror?

Instead of castrating the rights of the people, here's a suggestion that may satisfy everyone involved: place them on the dashboard.

At least then, while you lovingly admire your hefty hacky sacks, you could sing a happy tune.

"I don't care if it rains or freezes, as long as I got my plastic testes riding on the dashboard of my car..."

of course, there was my next door neighbor who had two live bulls where I had to endure the sight of real ones every damned morning on the way to school!

What a greta use of taxpayer funds--to focus on things like this! (Ugh.)

I'm wondering what harm artificial diembodied testes are doing to kids. True, I don't wish to see them (and I haven't really--they're not popular here yet). But any potential that these fake gonads have for warping young minds is only exacerbated by his calling attention to them.

Yet another example of how states end up with ridiculous legislation that is laughed about years later when the context is lost. We are slow learners aren't we?
