Pointless Question #69

So, what's up with truck nuts? It's bad enough that you're showing your truck's unmentionables swinging around in plain sight, but you're adding unmentionables to your truck. What were you thinking?!

Because Freud was right.

I hate to admit it, but in this case I must agree.

You know what I love? I love the yellow "Support the troops!" truck nuts. Because nothing says patriotism like a giant plastic ballsack (that is still too small for your truck) emblazoned with a supportive message.

I wonder if there are pink breast cancer awareness truck nuts.

Further proof that no-one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the public. With the right marketing, you could sell some people a kick in the teeth.

What gets me is that they stick it right on the very back of it by the liscense plate. That'd be like if we had balls coming off our feet, like Washington.

These people also seem like the types who find "Larry the Cable Guy" funny for non-ironic reasons. (I'm convinced the other 3 red neck comedians keep him around just for their own amusement.)

Actually, Jaguar, if you assume that the car is a quadrapedal animal, they're in the right place.
What are they supposed to be for, anyway? Towing?

One word: Teabaggers.

They're called that for more than one reason.

Now that I think about it, could it be compared to hanging them on the end of the tail. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to have them hanging from the center of the rear axle?

It just occurred to me that a particular misinterpreted Far Side cartoon would be very... interesting... to show to people with truck nuts.

Sadly, I can't find it at the moment, so I'll leave you all with the joke that Larson meant to tell...

The caption is "Every Dog's Dream" or something like it. The panel features a dog and a truck. The dog has somehow 'caught' and 'killed' the truck, which is lying upside-down on the ground. Glorying in the kill, the dog stands atop the truck, howling at an unseen moon.

I'm pretty sure the common misinterpretation of the actual cartoon isn't near as obvious in that retelling.
