I know you've seen them. Driving along the highway, you inch up behind a trucker and notice something dangling below his hitch. You might do a double-take the first time, but they are there. Chrome cojones.

Maryland Delegate LeRoy E. Myers, jr. is not amused, according to a NYT article. He is furious at truckers hanging effigies of their two best aggies on the hitches of their trucks.

"People are making a joke out of it," said Myers. "But I think it's a pretty serious problem. You have body parts hanging from the hitches of cars. We've crossed a line."

According to the article, "His bill would prohibit motorists from displaying anything resembling or depicting "anatomically correct" or "less than completely and opaquely covered" human or animal genitals, human buttocks or female breasts. The offense would carry a penalty."

So it would be okay to cut off and display real balls from your trailer hitch, just not fake ones...

Opponents say displaying statues such as the Venus de Milo on your vehicle would be prohibited under the law (there goes my plan for a topless bowsprit for my Prius).
