Virginia is not for people who want to hang genitalia from their trailer hitch.

“RICHMOND, Va. – It’s one thing to dangle fuzzy dice from a rear view mirror, but decorating a trailer hitch with a large pair of rubber testicles might be a bit much in Virginia.

State Del. Lionel Spruill introduced a bill Tuesday to ban displaying replicas of human genitalia on vehicles, calling it a safety issue because it could distract other drivers.

Under his measure, displaying the ornamentation on a motor vehicle would be a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum fine of $250.

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.”

Oh Blue Balls….

I think the things are stupid and redneck comes to mind everytime I see them. This is a waste of government time and energy. The last I checked there is such a thing as freedom of speech in America. Heaven forbid this child go on a field trip to a farm. Do we start making cows and other animals wear pants?
