Arrow Hanging of 'Truck Nuts' Grows into a Free Speech Debate

'Don't touch my junk,' is taking on new meaning.

"Truck nuts," fake bull testicles made of plastic or metal that drivers hang on the back of their pickups to make a truck look more manly, have been around for years. Some find them funny, while others find them offensive, prompting at least three states to try to ban them -- unsuccessfully.

I'm sorry, but genitalia on public display isn't "speech". And unlike TV you can't just tune out, because it may be in staring you (and your kids) in the face in rush hour traffic.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

We will see how the court case goes. Never saw the point in them. Some people like putting fake cow balls on the trucks. Go figure.

IMO i think it looks kind of dumb and it is offensive to kids.

Not a fan of the whole "Truck Nuts" craze, and I don't support it as freedom of speech.

Since when did boobs become classified as genitalia? Do you support hitch-mounted veejayjays?

So, what are you going to do? Require all bulls (male cows) that are in the country to wear clothes? They are out in public view. These devices are copies of them. Don't forget, not like some kids dont have things themselves.
