I don't know how you guys walk around with those things


Cover the eyes of your children, we have another moron on the road. Nards, nuts, happy sac, balls, family jewels, the twins, huevos, whatever you call them, you should never, ever, put this term on your license plate. Why? Because you have a mother somewhere, that's why! Plus, looking up synonyms for balls isn't my idea of a productive Thursday morning, thankyouverymuch.

Christina from Nebraska took this picture while vacationing in California. I like the glossy reflection of the word NARDS in this one, very artsy. We can all learn a thing or two about taking good license plate photos from this picture. Thanks Christina!

Which further proves the saying - "Just because you HAVE one doesn't mean you have to BE one." Maybe Elaine said that, too??

Points to deb for knowing it was an Elaine quote. Best show ever.

After growing up in Texas, I've found this to be particularly true with people that have the fake metal nards hanging from the back of their vehicle - if you're announcing to the world that you've got em' then you probably really DON'T.

It killed me not having my camera handy the other day to get a pic of "DEZ NUTZ" on a Nebraska plate.

Actually, to play "devil's advocate" a bit here, my parents live down the street from a family with the last name of "Nard". I get mad at my husband because he was going through my high school yearbook and saw the name of their son (who is mentally retarded) and decided he liked his name so much that he walks around saying "Mark Nard!" all the time.

there MUST be nard hanging from the bumper, just out of sight of the photo :)

Haha, I didn't even know what "nards" were until I read this post!

Maybe he's a Wolfman. You know, Wolfman has nards. I'm so sorry, please forgive me, but any time I see that word all I can think about is the movie Monster Squad.

What needs to be added are truck nuts, those things you get to see lovingly swinging from truck trailer hitches these days.
