Florida may ban ornamental testicles
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - They're proudly displayed by any self-respecting bull, but dangling big metal ones on the back end of a truck could be banned in Florida.
Metal replicas of bull testicles have become trendy bumper ornaments in some parts of the Sunshine State, but state Senator Carey Baker is campaigning to ban the orbs.
Baker acknowledged that Florida lawmakers have more pressing issues, including huge revenue shortfalls, but said the state needs to draw a line on what's obscene before more objectionable adornments appear.
State Senator Steve Geller argued against Baker's bill.
He says he finds it shocking that the state should be telling people that have the metallic bull testicles that they're now going to have demerit points on their licenses for it.
Geller was in the minority. Baker's bill would fine drivers $60 for displaying the ornaments.
