The Funniest And Most Offensive Thing I’ve Heard This Week

At about the 2:30 mark of this, you’ll hear the Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me take on a testy debate in Florida:

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.

Peter Sagal and Drew Carey are hilarious, but the best part of the clip is knowing that these guys have never actually seen a pair of Ford Family Jewels (and if you have not, either, you can see them here). They might as well be discussing the mating rituals of some third world tribe of cannibals. Around here, of course, the Truck Nutz have eclipsed silhouettes of naked ladies and cartoons of Calvin peeing on the other truck company’s logo as the de rigueur redneck truck adornment.

The only way this could be any funnier is if the ban passed. The lawsuits would be fantastic. How awesome would it be to read the case of TruckNutz, Inc. v. State of Florida? Or the case in which a ticketed driver challenges the law? “Today we decide whether the First Amendment’s guarantee of freedom of expression includes a right to express one’s manliness by hanging fake testicles from a pickup truck.” I can only hope.
