Car Parts

After-market car accessories are a great way to personalize your vehicle, and provide an outlet for expressing yourself to both pedestrians and other drivers alike.  For example, every year around NHL playoff time, it is not uncommon to see vehicles with small flags fastened to driver side and passenger side windows that display the logo of their favourite team.  Bumper stickers can provide opportunities for sharing vehicle related humour, helping lighten the mood while drivers are stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.  Snap-on oversized rear view mirrors are a great way to improve your visibility when driving, while warning other drivers around you who happen to notice your gargantuan novelty mirror that you have no business operating a motor vehicle, and that extra space should therefore be provided when driving in your proximity.

Not all accessories are good ones however, and one in particular makes me cringe every time I see it.  The one I am referring to is typically seen hanging off the trailer hitch at the rear of a pick-up truck, and that of course is none other than the dangling metal scrotum.  I can only imagine Henry Ford’s neck wrenching double take, and horrified reaction the moment he walked past the back of a truck with his name on it, his eyes fixated in disbelief at the mere sight!!  Surely he did not intend for his vehicles to be defiled in such a way.  And exactly what statement is the truck owner trying to make by going out and buying a large metal scrotum, and attaching it to the back of his vehicle?  Thinking it through, and with a little imagination, the answer is only logical.  He’s a dick!  I wonder if he has to be careful when backing into a parking space with a raised concrete curb.  He wouldn’t want to scratch his balls.
