Truck-nutz? Can it get any more crude, I mean 'red', than this? (here, another brand and lots of pics - click on mugshots). Who in their right mind would hang these under thier bumper?

I don't know what you've been feeding your dog, but I don't think I approve.

Who would hang them under their bumper? The kind of brain donors who have those stupid signs stuck to their back window saying stuff like "I'm naked from the waist down" or "Honk if you got it last night". I sincerely hope these things never cross the Atlantic to England.

I cannot believe I'm saying this, but...Don't they seem a bit small?

I see this a method of Self-Tagging so that the rest of us know to give these idiots people a wide berth. Deez Nuts [sorry, couldn't resist] are just like the WEBN frog stickers in the greater Cincinnati area that take up the whole rear end of the car that tell me to stay away from the truck that sports said bumper sicker.

Is it any worse than the mud flaps some trucks sport? I think it's hysterical, but wouldn't put them on my car.

Earlier last month, me and girlfriend were on our way back from Grand Teton National Park, when we say a couple big pickup trucks in Montana with these on, and I remember thinking, where in the world would you get something like that to put on your truck (let alone why).....

Well know I know. Thanks.

With so many fine retailers, it is going to difficult to decide which are the best mock testicles for my needs.

The thing is, if I hadn't seen the site, I don't think I would have known what they were supposed to be if I saw them!

Sure, it's all fun and games until they smack into debris on the road at 65 mph. Whap!

I foresee "truck castration" overtaking cow tipping as the number one form of juvenile delinquency in towns with populations under a thousand.

madprops --- or self-castrate at 65 mph, sending two solid chunks of hard rubber hurtling at somebody's windshield.

I live in North Dakota --- I've seen these things on sale everywhere. It lends credo to my theory that in 50 years, the only people left in this state will each have an extra toe.

These truck balls (OK, I know you can put 'em on a car, but that don't seem right) prove what every halfwit Freudian amateur cultural critic said about cars and masculinity. It also reinforces the old saw about how hard it is to do satire these days, with shit like this out there.

The ones at the second link seem to be crafted with more loving detail. Notice how one hangs lower. You have to applaud attention to detail like that.

So are they going to make giant penises to hang under your chassis as well (following kozad theory)? How many of these already don't talk about their dicks enough anyways?

once they get some credo in south dakota. the extra toe comes in handy during giant rubber penis assembly.

I'd buy a pair if they were hairy and flesh colored.

Half the pickup-drivin' mill-workin' good ol' beer drinkin' boys in my home town, that's who. The same people who used to buy Ayatollah Khomeini 'toilet targets' (I assume some enterprising folk have created ones now for Bin Laden...), the same guys who peeled off the 'Proud Canadian' stickers from the backs of their Royal Reserve rye bottles and stuck them on the back window of the cab of their trucks...

It's interesting to watch North America's socio-eco classes become more and more culturally divergent, and watch the head scratching that goes on when they intersect.

stbalbach: yes, and the Cerne Abas giant practices safe sex and sets a good example for others. Can truck nuts users say the same?

yes. hairly, flesh-colored head scratching. it's all good.

I wish I had the money to purchase one, but I've just spent all my available funds on the whole "Big Johnson" T-shirt collection. Maybe in a couple of months, though...

You'd think that if "size does matter," as TruckNutz claims, they'd offer bigger ones. These look, well, kinda wimpy.

Furthermore...
This is where you can purchase the "Original Your-Nuts" for your truck, buggy, car or motorcycle.

Exactly where would you put these on a motorcycle? Wouldn't they smack up against the back wheel?

I think the ideal spot would be on the back of the helmet, so everyone would know that the rider was a dickhead.

But then again, the kind of person that would buy fake testicles for a vehicle wouldn't wear a helmet, would they?

I'm amazed that they offer them in blue. You'd think that someone trying to make such a "manly" statement with these things would avoid a color with such negative connotations for the male genitalia.

Pretty ballsy link, tomplus2.

They seem a bit small relative to the size of the vehicles they are intended for, in my view.

illusionaire - never heard of "blue balls"?

All seems a bit pointless, unless they were at least remotely lifelike. Even then, actually, but at least they could make some effort.

dg: What I was trying to say is that I don't think that guys would like to advertise that they have "blue balls" -- or would they?

... I don't think that guys would like to advertise that they have "blue balls" ...

Well, I certainly wouldn't, but I can't speak as an authority on redneck mating rituals, so who knows?
