Too Bad There's No Real Problems

RICHMOND, Virginia (AP) - It is one thing to dangle fuzzy dice from a rear view mirror, but decorating a truck's trailer hitch with a large pair of rubber testicles might be a bit much in Virginia.
State lawmaker Lionel Spruill introduced a bill Tuesday to ban displaying rubber replicas of male genitalia on vehicles,
He said the idea came from a constituent whose young daughter spotted an example of the trail hitch adornment and asked her father to explain it.
«'I didn't know what to tell her,»' Spruill said the constituent told him before Spruill vowed to stop such displays.
«I said, 'Sir, I'm going to be a laughingstock, but I'm going to do it,»' he said.
The Virginia General Assembly has some experience with offbeat bills. Three years ago, it drew widespread attention with an unsuccessful effort to outlaw baggy pants worn so low they expose underwear.

Wonder what he tells her about Rover's equipment?
