I thought I'd seen it all. Until yesterday.

On my drive to the hardware store a few miles down our country road, I lagged behind a big red doolie truck (truck with four rear tires). Something flashed and dangled from underneath the trailer hitch on that vehicle in front of me. I wondered if the hitch had come undone somehow and might be about to fall off. Perhaps my next idea didn't demonstrate good judgement, because I decided to get closer to the truck to find out. My discovery left me blushing. The trailer hitch was fine, but the driver had attached a glistening set of swaying silver testicles. Apparently these are the new way to "cowboy your sweet ride".

Personally, I'll stick to air freshener in the shape of a daisy swinging from my rear view mirror.

Ah, how to write wonderfully about frighteningly tasteless things-- you have done well!

There's a phrase about those of us who feel embarrassed for people who obviously don't have the sense to be embarrassed for themselves. Silver. Testicles. It's too bad he isn't embarrassed, no?

Thank you for writing it, though. We live in a funny world. If I see any in Massachusetts, I'll know what I'm looking at, now.
