    Talking Bumper Nuts

    Just on fox, which this item has been around for some time.
    One state Virginia is trying to ban them.
    Too funny.

    I am in Texas and see them A LOT. I hate them. My kids ask "What is that?" and I usually avoid the question and change the subject. They really are not appropriate for children to view...and I am not uptight usually but I really jsut think they are stupid and disgusting, but hey--soemone is buying them...

    OMG, I think I saw those hanging off the back of a pickup truck a couple years ago. I may have even gotten a picture. I knew what they resembled, but I was wondering what the heck they were supposed to be / what their purpose was! LOL

    But, I did laugh! LOL.

    I have seen them and think they are stupid too- but I think what is even "stupidier" is the fact our government is taking time to make it an issue- I feel the same way about the Baseball players steroid use--- WHY IS THIS SOMETHING THE GOV HAS TO DEAL WITH ?? lol-I rather see them taking time to figure out more important issues at this time- IE foreclosures,interest rates, economy, Iraq, elections....etc-etc-etc-etc--

    A lot of people have them here and I think its not appropriate because children are very curious and want to know.

    Living in Colorado, in the boonies, pickups are a way of life. It's nothing to see a little old lady driving a big 1 ton to town to shop. I've only seen one set on a truck around here.

    We went to the National Western Stock Show this past weekend in Denver. This is a major national event and lasts 3 weeks. Been going on for 102 years. There are hundreds of exhibitors selling something, including "bumper nuts". I was rather suprised when we passed the Ford booth. Every single truck was sporting these balls. I suppose they were meant to show how "tough" the trucks were, LOL. Didn't bother me though.

    I really think Virginia is rather silly for thinking of banning them. If I remember, it's illegal also in Virginia to have a radar detector. This proposed law as well as the anti-detector law affects those driving through as will as residents. It's silly.

    As for kids out here, if they live anywhere in the country, they participate in all farm cattle activities, including castrating young bulls, so they know what's what on a daily basis.

    silly for government of any state to waste the taxpayers money on these silly things. i havent seen them in real life, most of the trucks have much worse stuff painted or hanging from them lol.
