    One of things about living in these times is the wonderful humor and tragedy of it. If it were possible to juxtapose the beautiful and horrible next to each other in some way where would that lead? What thoughts would grow out of it? I'll leave that thought there, but given debates that have substantive value I'll leave you with this debate to ponder and pick a side. Reasons?

    "I love to talk about truck nuts, probably for the same reason that racists love to talk about crime rates in the ghetto. Regardless of why, I just can’t get enough of the phenomenon of people affixing plastic testicles to their motor vehicles.

    Obviously, I think people should be free to do pretty much whatever they want when it comes to decorating their vehicles. So I find the truck nuts story circulating around the blogosphere very disturbing. Apparently, a South Carolina woman was given a $445 ticket for her truck’s nuts. Her story is making news, because she’s secured a jury trial to protest the ticket." Is A Ban on ‘Truck Nuts’ Unconstitutional? « Above the Law: A Legal Web Site

    It doesn't take much imagination to envision what is going to be running vertically, up and down the middle of the front grills of 18-wheelers, if this trend continues . . . :cool:

    I think that it reflects the status of the driver but if you want to look like a couple of nuts go for it. I have a truck and I find that my friends love it especially when they need to haul something.
