To me, truck nuts always seemed both unnecessarily vulgar and not vulgar enough — it’s a vile gesture to give your vehicle balls, and yet testicles without a penis is clearly an anatomical abnormality.
So I was delighted to see a local’s take on the “truck nuts” fad that dispenses with the vulgar aspect altogether, replacing it with clever wordplay. Alternately, one could argue that hex nuts are more anatomically correct on a metal vehicle. Either way.
As my co-worker (who pointed these nuts out to me) said: “Truck nuts; you’re doing it right.”
