People need to lighten up.

Good Grief! Someone must be really insecure.

 

I wonder what he would have thought of a small purse made from a bulls scrotum? I knew a lady at Ren Faire who had a belt pouch made from one. Loved to try to make guys cringe telling them about it. And one traditional muzzle loader who used one for, you got it, a ball pouch.

 

 

 

CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - The police chief of a small South Carolina town will ask a jury to decide if a woman broke the state's obscenity laws by driving a pickup truck with plastic testicles hanging from the back.

 

Bonneau Police Chief Franco Fuda ticketed Virginia Tice, 65, in early July at a local convenience store after spying the adornment dangling from her truck.

 

South Carolina law considers a bumper sticker, decal or device indecent when it describes, in an offensive way as determined by contemporary community standards, "sexual acts, excretory functions, or parts of the human body."

 

The offense carries a maximum fine of $445 but no jail time, Fuda said.

 

"This is certainly not a staple of my ticket writing in Bonneau," the police chief told Reuters on Wednesday.

 

The Charleston law firm Savage & Savage will represent Tice for free, attorney Scott Bischoff said. The trial had been scheduled for next week but was delayed because the defendant will be out of town.

 

"She's such a sweet lady and she just says 'I don't want to pay the fine.' We'll let a jury decide whether this is really criminal behavior. I don't want to take away from the importance of free speech, but it's really comical," he said.

 

Lawmakers in some states have sought to ban the colorful plastic or rubber devices that go by brand names such as Bulls Balls and Truck Nutz.

 

Fuda said if the fake testicles were a free speech issue, "I don't know what they would be trying to express."

 

"I went to (a) few websites that said, excuse the expression, 'show your nuts,'" he said. "I didn't see anywhere it said support your local proctologist or farmer."

I got a simple definition of obscene. If you don't want to have to explain it to your little kid, it's obscene.

 

Bumper stickers. **** happens, and "How's my driving? Call 1-800-EAT-****" They are obscene. I don't want my 6-year-old, who is just learning to read, reading that out loud and turning to me and saying, "Daddy, what's **** ?" I don't want her pointing to a set of plastic balls hanging from the back of a truck, or a plastic penis some jerk in a gay-pride parade is wearing as a fake nose, and asking "What's that?"

 

Does it offend me? No it don't. I'm old. I don't care. Do I want little kids seeing it? No I don't. That's why it's obscene.

Alpo, you just reminded me of a story.

 

When I was a little boy, my dad's favorite word when he was disgusted with something was s***. Being 6 years old, I didn't know what the word meant from Adam;s housecat, but something told me it wasn't a "nice word," judging from how and when my dad (who was my little-boy idol at the time) used it. So one day, my curiousity got the better of me, and I asked him, "Daddy, why do you say s*** all the time?"

 

Right in front of his boss and his boss' family. To say that I got torn a new one when we got home that night is an understatement.

 

Now, here is the really funny part about that little foot-in-mouth experience: I remember just like it occurred yesterday that afterwards, when my dad was angry about something, s*** suddenly became "shoot." And he didn't say another cuss word in front of me until I was 17. I confirmed it years later that after they put me to bad that night, my mom chewed him out about his language.

 

True story.

That federal gov't place where I used to work gives out a retirement gift of a TEXAS Longhorn statue & the Longhorn happens to be a fully intact bull. Well, some of the "ladies" at work thought the intactness was offensive & complained about it to the brass. So now when you retire, you can order a Longhorn "with" or "without."

Doesn't seem like a very practical thing to have hanging off the back of your truck.

 

It would make more sense to have one hanging off the bumper of a Chrysler Cialis ... or whatever that convertible is ... that you see all the old duffers driving.

Fer some reason this brings to mind Kat's article in the last Chronicle... where she sez that not only were women not even s'posed to let so much as an ankle be glimpsed, but that folks actually put covers on table legs!

 

Dang, but the sense of "decency" does evolve, don't it? ^_^

 

And by the way... I was thinkin' the same as Allie. And a few others, of course. ;)

Yep, things do change:

 

Tuscaloosa Independent Monitor, Saturday, Feb. 18, 1860, page 1, col. 5 --

 

GIRLS, DON’T DO IT – There is a practice, quite prevalent among young ladies of the present day, which we are old fashioned enough to consider improper. We allude to their giving daguerreotypes of themselves to young men who are merely acquaintances. We consider it indelicate in the highest degree. We are astonished that any young girl should hold herself as cheap as this. With an accepted lover it is of course all right. Even in this case the likeness should be returned if the engagement should by any misunderstanding cease. If this little paragraph should meet the eye of any young girl about to give her daguerreotype to a gentleman acquaintance, let her know that the remarks made by young men when together, concerning what is perhaps on her part but a piece of ignorance or imprudence, would if she heard them, cause her cheeks to crimson with shame and anger. “Were it a sister of ours,” we have often said, with a flashing eye – were it a sister of ours! But that not being the case, we give this advice to anybody’s sister who needs it, with our best bow, and most anxious desire that she should at all times preserve her dignity and self-respect.

Yes. I think they need to lighten up. And to think, in this day and age, they're spending tax dollars to fight that humor?

Yer right Jen. They should be busting little girls for operating lemonade stands instead.

 

 

Oh wait ... some other knuckleheads have already done that.
