    Lawmaker Comes Down on Plastic Gonads

    ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Fake bull testicles and other anatomically explicit vehicle decorations would be banned from Maryland roads under a bill pending in the state legislature.

    The measure was filed in the General Assembly Monday by Delegate LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washingon, who says children shouldn't be exposed to giant plastic gonads dangling from pickup truck trailer hitches. The bill also would ban depictions of naked human breasts, buttocks or genitals, with offenses punishable by fines of up to $500.

    "It's time to take a stand," Myers told The (Hagerstown) Herald-Mail.

    The American Civil Liberties Union objected to Myers' bill.


    "The legislation is overly broad, and would probably make it illegal to have a sticker on your car of the Venus de Milo from an art museum," ACLU of Maryland spokeswoman Meredith Curtis wrote in an e-mail.

    Pamela Campbell whose Bullhead City, Ariz., business sells fake bull testicles, suggested that the swinging decorations can prompt healthy discussions about anatomy and reproduction.

    "Do we have to neuter all dogs that walk by us?" she asked. "Where does it stop?"

    Last week, Arizona's legislature rejected a measure that would have banned vehicle splash guards bearing racist terms or silhouettes of naked women.

    ??? Why use the fake ones when the real ones are cheap enough?

    I haven't seen this done anywhere around my area & I live in a beef & dairy cow area.

    Has anyone here have them on their vehicles or seen it?

    I've never actually seen them on a vehicle, but the place that Rhino lined my truck bed sells them.
    There actually kind of funny.

    I think the ban is nuts.

    Isn't that the same state that tried to make underware sticking out of your pants illegal? You know, the womans thong and guys sagging their jeans. Do lawmakers NOT have enough to do?

    Sounds like too much time on their hands.

    Although I have to admit that it is one of my pet peeves when I see a girl with lowriders and a thong sticking out the back.
