Worth It For The Headline

...Tacky though it is:

"South Carolina woman faces trial for fake testicles"

No, it's not some awkward marriage-rights protest, merely the tasteless truck accessory.

'Sa pity you can't actually breed trucks, though; my truck-owning friends tell me none of the current crop possess all the desired traits and if you could cross 'em and pick the pups that did, you might just have something.... (On the other hand: Oh dear, oh dear, is that a classic VW Bug got into the garage? Somebody turn a hose on 'em, quick!)

Those accessories are pretty standard on most trucks around here... where you turned off the paved road about 20 miles back...

"Apparently the sheriff was upset because the fake testicles were much larger then his own, but breaking a law, why?"

This has t be the comment of the day. I was laughing so hard I had to quit reading.

I almost picked up a t-shirt for you. One I saw and thought of you. Had I known your size...

Do I hear banjos in the distance?

Do you suppose that adornment helps her meet guys?

I had to google this to find out what you were talking about. Yuck!

From the article:

"South Carolina law considers a bumper sticker, decal or device indecent when it describes, in an offensive way as determined by contemporary community standards, "sexual acts, excretory functions, or parts of the human body.""

The "device" does not depict a "sexual act" of any kind.

The "device" does not depict an "excretory function" of any kind.

The "device" does not depict any part of the "human body".

The defense rests.

You know, both sides of this issue had me wondering what was going on. Then I realized that it occurred in South Carolina.

Have ya ever actually turned a hose on mating dogs? My experience is that you just end up with two wet dogs and a litter of puppies.

Holy cow! (or should that be bull?) I have seen a lot of those on trucks here in the Tulsa area. Not once did it occurr to me to write a ticket to the driver of any of those trucks sporting this particular accessory. At first I found them humorous but now the newness factor has worn off and I pay little attention to them.

DJ's read of the South Carolina law is pretty much spot-on and those definitely DON'T fit any of the prohibited criteria since they represent a part of a "bull" that separates it from a much less fortunate "steer".

Speaking of tacky, this (http://youtu.be/ivHsQUTotag) looks to be a couple hours south ... down near Kentuk', ya know?

DJ said...

Montie, they don't fit any part of the prohibited criteria because they represent parts of a bovine creature, not a human. "... of the human body" is quite specific, methinks.
