Virginia Law Makers Go Too Far

They can take away our cigarettes, and tax us to hell and back, but the state lawmakers in Virginia have taken things too far this time–they’re trying to take away my balls.

To be specific, they’re trying to make it a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $250 to hang a pair of fake nuts from your trailer hitch.

The idea and motivation, however, came from a constituent upset that his young daughter had caught sight of the facsimile sex organs and asked what they were.

“I didn’t know what to tell her,” Spruill said, quoting the constituent, whom he refused to identify.

“I said, ‘Sir, I’m going to be a laughing stock, but I’m going to do it,’” he said.

Well, at least he got one thing right that day.

Now, in reality, the Manlyweb Cruiser doesn’t have a nutsack hanging from the hitch (and we sure as hell ain’t forking over $50+ to get a pair in brass or chrome), nor do we live in Virginia, so the law wouldn’t really impact us here.  But it still seems absolutely ridiculous that people who are being elected to run a state spend time debating something like this.
