Never Mind the Bollocks...

Ever catch yourself doing an unimaginably weird Google search? It happened to me today when I typed "testicle car ornament" into the search engine, hoping that none of my co-workers would look over my shoulder.

Why? I was on Route 7 this morning, and noticed an unusual appendage dangling from the trailer hitch of a pickup truck. After squinting at the pendulous object, which swung gently with every bump, I thought to myself, "are those testicles?"  Then I thought: "how does a mom explain that one to her sweet little four-year-old daughter?"

Sure enough, my Internet exploration turned up multiple companies that sell "Truck Nutz," also known as "Bumper Nuts." The  latter are more realistic looking (I'm not sure if that's a good thing). They come in various colors: Think olive drab, solid brass (pictured), and even...blue!

Weird.
