I didn't believe it when I was told about it.

Maybe you've alreayd seen these on the back of a truck.
When a siting of these was first reported to me, I thought he was making it up. Maybe I'm just a little naive, because when I finally saw them for myself in Albuquerque, I assumed that they must have some other function, and they resemble what they apparently are by accident. It never entered my mind that anyone would have any reason for having something like this, or buying it on purpose. I googled and found that it's just part of a larger, more alarming trend.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that there are things that my sisters do that make me embarassed to be a woman. Much of the time, we are our own worst enemy. I like to give guys a lot of slack because I know that women play woman games, and men often have to respond to that.

But, lets be honest - this ecoutrement is all guy. You can't blame this on us; it exists for no other reason than, perhaps, the fact that is completely sophomoric.
Actually, I take that back. Mini-me is a high school sophomore this year, and he says he'd never buy them. Why? Because he couldn't think of a reason he would want a pair of fake testacles hanging off whatever it is he's driving. He still thinks I was making it up.


  1. I can't stand those things! Oh, I hate them. And almost without fail, they are on a super huge jacked up truck that gets 5 MPG. Drives me nuts, no pun intended.

  2. oh hey - now I know what to get you for Christmas! ;-)

  3. Yes, you do. They make earrings to match, you know.

  4. Oh. My. God.

    All I can think is, are they that worried that it appears that they might not be entirely male that they have to advertise it on the back of their trucks? As if, for most guys, a truck isn't its own masculinity enhancement.

I'm sitting here, looking out the window.  I did 3 miles this morning.  Big whoop.  After recovering from CDiff last month, I got a cold...
