Florida calls for ban on fake ‘nuts’ hanging from vehicles

Florida Senate lawmakers have voted to ban the use of fake testicles that hang from the back of trailers and trucks of many vehicles. Republican Sen. Cary Baker called the ‘bumpernuts’ offensive and proposed the initial ban. If passed, drivers displaying ‘bumpernuts’ will be fined $60.

Some Senate lawmakers question whether the state should allow freedom of expression in vehicles accessories. Sen Jim King, a Jacksonville Republican had a pair of nuts hanging off his truck until his wife protested against the display.

“It’s probably not going to make it through the process,” Baker said. “It won’t be much of story in a few days.”
