I am not making this up

Yesterday I had the sublime good fortune of driving home directly behind a pickup truck outfitted with fake police flashers, a "peeing Calvin" decal, and truck nuts. Red, to match the truck.

It had a vanity plate too, reading (brace yourself) YEHAW.

God bless America.

I was passed by a similar truck recently, but in downtown Chicago, which I found odd. But it was being driven by a balding, overly muscular, tank-topped man...and the truck nuts were fleshtone.

(gag)

Oh they are EVERYWHERE down here, K. EVERYWHERE. Blue is the most popular color.

Also, the trucks often bear the bumper sticker "My other toy has tits."

They're scary. And icky. I mean, I've got nothing against scrotum (scrotae?) (remember when Jonna said Teint de Neige reminded her of scrotum/ae? Was it Teint de Neige? Good times.) Anyway, plastic ones as truck decor? Please. I mean, No Thank You. xoxo

Methinks such a driver is going a tad overboard in compensating for his inadequacy.

Or do I presume too much?

And you didn't even see the air freshener...

coincidentally, the word confirmation for this comment is "airwgmkh", which would be the thought-sound one would make upon seeing a likely air freshener for the described vehicle.
