    Should children be exposed to plastic bull scrotum?

    Hey Terminator - Imitation is the highest form of flattery

    Seriously though, what do you think? Aside from it being a phenomenal waste of your time on the job that is.

    I don't go for that sort of decoration myself, but I don't support laws banning it.

    Lawmaker Comes Down On Plastic Gonads

    (AP) ANNAPOLIS, Md. Fake bull testicles and other anatomically explicit vehicle decorations would be banned from Maryland roads under a bill pending in the state legislature.

    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 bill also would ban depictions of naked human breasts, buttocks or genitals, with offenses punishable by fines of up to $500.

    "It's time to take a stand," Myers told The (Hagerstown) Herald-Mail.

    The American Civil Liberties Union objected to Myers' bill.

    "The legislation is overly broad, and would probably make it illegal to have a sticker on your car of the Venus de Milo from an art museum," ACLU of Maryland spokeswoman Meredith Curtis wrote in an e-mail.

    Pamela Campbell whose Bullhead City, Ariz., business sells fake bull testicles, suggested that the swinging decorations can prompt healthy discussions about anatomy and reproduction.

    "Do we have to neuter all dogs that walk by us?" she asked. "Where does it stop?"

    Last week, Arizona's legislature rejected a measure that would have banned vehicle splash guards bearing racist terms or silhouettes of naked women.

    Those things are disgusting, but I don't think banning them is a good idea. Is this really the most important problem the legislature can come up with to fix?

    Well why not they have the war on drugs taken care of; they surrendered.

    First time I saw one I couldn't figure what in the hec was dangling there. Once I figured it out it was funny.

    I saw another set the other day at the gas station and 2 women got out of the car. One of the women was wearing a LEO uniform.
