    TALLAHASSEE, Florida (Reuters) - Senate lawmakers in Florida have voted to ban the fake bull testicles that dangle from the trailer hitches of many trucks and cars throughout the state.

    Republican Sen. Cary Baker, a gun shop owner from Eustis, Florida, called the adornments offensive and proposed the ban. Motorists would be fined $60 for displaying the novelty items, which are known by brand names like "Truck Nutz" and resemble the south end of a bull moving north.

    The Florida Senate voted last week to add the measure to a broader transportation bill, but it is not included in the House version.

    In a spirited debate laced with double entendre, Senate lawmakers questioned whether the state should curtail freedom of expression in vehicle accessories.

  2. Senate lawmakers in Florida have no balls!

  6. First step... let's stop counting their votes.

    So if I visit a ranch and happen upon a bull, am I supposed to avert my eyes?

    I hope for the poor bull's sake, they don't ban the real ones. Ouch!
     
  8. "Just say no to nuts." What a wonderful role model the FL senator. "Being in the Senate has given me a chance to work on legislation that makes a difference." When you be driving down the road and see nothing hanging on a trailer hitch "You can thank me".

    The least they could do would be "Nut free zones" near schools, churches, daycare centers, playgrounds.

    Hi, my name is Bob Manure, I'm running for Senate. Vote for me cause I give a shit about "Truck Nutz".
