Sometimes even the legislature in your own home state embarrasses you.........

Lawmaker Seeks Ban On 'Testicle' Hitch

RICHMOND, Va. - Drive across Virginia with an outsized rubber replica of testicles dangling from your trailer hitch and you face a fine under a bill before the General Assembly.
Delegate Lionel Spruill introduced the legislation Tuesday, saying the sight of masculine genitalia is a safety issue because it distracts drivers.

Spruill, a Democrat from Portsmouth, would make display of the ornamentation on a motor vehicle a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $250.

He says the idea came from a constituent whose young daughter had spotted the facsimile sex organs and asked her father to explain them.

The Virginia legislature has some experience with offbeat bills. Three years ago, it attracted worldwide attention for its effort to outlaw baggy pants worn so low they expose underwear.

Wierd man, what would the fine be if someone did a moonie? Maybe they have been to singapore to research the fine city.

I live in a state where testicles swing freely in the wind, unfettered by the persistent nagging of young ladies

"Sometimes ..."?

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Qubes, I'm about 79% certain the article was posted because the city of Portsmouth was mentioned. While I realize it's not always about me, there's something suspicious about the timing...
