I Feel So Much Safer Now

"A controversial Virginia lawmaker is trying to introduce new legislation to ban rubber testicles from being fitted to the back of trucks.

"Lionel Spruill, known for his failed attempt in 2005 to ban baggy pants, says the motivation for his latest idea came from a constituent.

"The man complained that he had been left speechless when his six-year-old daughter spotted a pair and asked him what they were.

"Mr. Spruill agreed to act: 'I said, 'Sir, I'm going to be the laughing stock, but I'm going to do it,' he told the Virginian-Pilot.

"Truck drivers who sport fake testicles on the back of their vehicles would risk a $250 fine under his proposal."


  1. Once again, my home state makes me so very proud. Sheesh!

  2. I want to leave a comment, but am speechless.
