It's for the children.
Numbnuts number one explains the crisis:
Washington County Sheriff's deputy Matthew Bragunier figures that he sees, at least once a day, fake bull genitals [more accurately, a scrotum — RvB] flopping from the hitches of pickup trucks. They're only a toy, but they're also unpleasant to look at, said Bragunier, worried what his 2-year-old girl might think someday. "My daughter's going to see this," he said. "She's going to ask what this is. I don't want to be put in that spot. I don't think I ever want to be in that spot."
Yes, god forbid that a child should ever see an animal scrotum. If the Braguniers have a dog, we should assume that it's either (a) female or (b) wearing colorful pantaloons (baggy, natch), probably knitted by Mrs. Bragunier herself. Also, no visits to the petting zoo for these kids!
Enter numbnuts number two:
Del. LeRoy E. Myers Jr., R-Washington/Allegany, agreed [with Bragunier]. This week, he filed a bill for Maryland to ban the toys and others like them. The bill prohibits any "model, sign, sticker or other item" that shows uncovered human or animal genitals, as well as human buttocks or female breasts, from motor vehicles.
While they're still legal, you can buy the fake bull's balls from this site (sample quote: "All of our products are colored through & through, should you ever drag your balls on anything, the color remains consistent").
