"Car? Shea doesn't is. Eighty five year old. Wilson's attitudes towards truck. Not is easier to understand when you consider that. Most of his customers are not exactly sincere about truck. That's either. Don't get me wrong. Some of them are insincere a toxic way. Wilson was recently asked to send a pair of truck nuts to Senator Jeff flake after flake insisted there'd be an FBI investigation into Brett Kavanagh. The message unmistakably being that flake should grow a pair. But most of orders come from people who either truck nuts are bit of tongue in cheek self lamb poontang. So funny, they have to have them on their car or so ridiculous. The absolutely do not want them on their car. Wheels of let's say somebody in an office somewhere. We want to give a gag gift. Wilson's assessment of his audience is born out by reviews of truck nuts on Amazon and Facebook of which this is a Representative example, the look feel emotion of these nuts hanging from my friend's truck. Made it look as though his worc- truck had a real set of nuts dangling from it. The only downside was that. My prank ended up making him. Look more manly. Driving down the road would buy these nuts for a prank again. That's our cast review was left by a real estate agent in Michigan named Matt Zahn. I'm involved in the prank war with a neighbor. Cross the lake and we've been kind of going back and forth doing pranks Matt's. Prank war has involved. Among other things wiring afraid shot and drawing a giant penis on a lawn in the middle of the night. You know, it'd be pretty funny. If I were to get some truck nuts and put him on his truck and. If he, you know days he would drive around town with them hanging there. He's a loan officer. So you had to actually go to acquaint house and your loan application that day, so he like pulled him their driveway. They're like out there talking, and I'm sure that the clients show them on the back of his truck. So it's supposed to be funny about this prank. Is that if you saw Matt's friend driving down the street, you would think he was sincere about his truck nuts. You'd assume that he was the type of guy who had truck nuts on his car because he wanted them there, even though he's not typically when you see somebody that has struck nuts. You're like, oh that guy's. Yes. Probably do Spag. What about it communicates? Someone who really have it is a douchebag think that if you have a pair of nuts on your truck. I mean, this is a certain personality type that would have that. And not have as a joke. Matt is not alone into the way. He's using truck nuts. Poking fun at Dushi rednecks, basically is different from how they're meant to be used an off brand usage of the product. But Matt and his friend are not outlier truck. Nuts consumers pranksters jokers and people sending up the people who they think the product is supposed to be four are part of the products core constituency. I was not expecting that going into the story. I was under the impression that truck not still thing because the people who were sincerely into truck knots. But it starting to look like truck nuts might still be a thing. Because people who are insincerely into truck nuts was the ironic macho truck not are real or was he a kind of figment of the imagination the answer to that. It turns out is a little bit of both. Now's the time that we talk about a sponsor this episode is brought to you by plug into the present a campaign raising awareness about electric vehicles. More and more people are discovering how electric cars can fit into their lifestyle with the days electric vehicles limited to your work commute, more and more models of a range of over two hundred miles per charge. So you can drive just about anywhere. We can road trips out of town errands. You name it. Driving electric is just like driving a conventional car. And there are a lot of fun to drive to have you ever experienced instant tour. Learn more about electric vehicles at plug into the present dot com. That's plug into the present dot com. Okay. Back to the show. As we were investigating truck nuts. We kept coming across other testicle based access re's. I was so flummoxed at this point about who truck nuts customer base was that. I thought it might be clarified to speak with some of these other companies in the hopes that they could shed some light on this particular question. One product in particular stood out. It's been mocked almost as much as truck nuts. It's called noodles Nichols. Or Justice killer implants for dogs cats horses bulls any animal that is altered. Good Miller is the owner and inventor of noodles, which over five hundred thousand have been sold a musical were thought of in nineteen ninety three with the trauma that I went through neutering bloodhound they buck. Buck was a hundred eighty seven pound bloodhound. It was a dominant feature of his, you know. Being and I was opposed to neutering because buck would no longer be bucked. It's really it's for the owners. It's not really for the pets 'cause they don't care, right. Cure pets, do know that they've been neutered. But it's, you know, basically pet owners wanting their male dog to maintain its God, given look and what's wrong with that. I mean, if you don't like it don't buy it whether or not the animals, actually know or care about their testicles is not something I'm going to get into. But the question what's wrong with that? Is that the heart not just of noodles but of truck nuts too? And my most easygoing open-minded self things Scher. That's right. If you don't like them, just don't buy them. But my instincts really action is just like can we not be so hung up on balls masculine really has pride of place in our culture. Can we leave the dog balls out of it? Greg doesn't just make replacement testicles. He also makes them other cosmetic products, including replacement years, and is or is not a word in the world has ever been said, but noodles will just bring out the craziness and people it's encouraging people to neuter that would not neuter before that's reducing pet overpopulation. This made me wonder am I being super uptight about testicles, I wouldn't begrudge someone replacing their dogs mangled ear or I even if it wasn't medically necessary. So what's my issue with this particular body part? I like to think my feelings about noodles or affliction of my values. Maybe they're also just a reflection of my taste. And you know, that's cuter than seeing him. You know, why will up the street with his little things between and the idea of neutering him and eliminating that is just you know. Thank you. Especially so funny because when I was going to say his like instead of the cute like every the dog with just like waddling along with that looks so like Masty. Yeah, there's really in your face like, but you obviously feel about on your attitude towards the product. And I mean, I'll admit noodles or as controversial as religion and politics noodles adjust acknowledging a reality that some people really care about balls, and that's true across the political spectrum as a second product on our tour of testicle related excess Sary's bike balls demonstrates bike balls are Kickstarter funded bicycle lights in the shape of testicles. They give off a pink light and hang low from underneath a bike seat right below where a male cyclist genitals would rest like it takes grit and balls to ride on the roads, Heather lamb is an industrial designer based in Toronto who's one of the co creators of bike balls. It reminds other. Drivers that you are human too because. A part of your flushes cyclists and pickup truck drivers are imagined to be a very different demographic, politically speaking. But apparently some members of both groups would like to trick out there ride with a pair of nuts, though, bike balls are not gilding the lily the way that truck nuts are they're not trying to make the most powerful vehicle on the road seem even more macho they are evidence. If you needed it that ball jokes and ball appreciation more generally cross the aisle. I've heard people will tend to yell. Nice. Both. That they've seen you. So that like latest keeping safe. And you're getting a couple of. Yes. The bipartisan nature of testicle related accessories. Was further underscored to me by the conversation. I had about the most provocative accessory of all gonna calls. Plastic testicles that clip onto the barrel of gun. Are we shut against goals via the company's Facebook page. I was pretty sure known is gonna respond to me slate. His written a lot about the need for gun control and a reputation as liberal site. Made me assume they would be very reticent to speak with us. And to my surprise, the owner Anthony Melles rope saying no worries on political orientation LL Gunston does have a wacky audience. My initial vision for the product was this is something that gun owners will by kind of as a goof to make your friends laugh at the range, and so the packaging and most of the marketing is geared towards image a gun accessory, look serious, thus the gun schools marketing features and animated sporty woman who smiles holding a gun, and it has the tagline the pants down leader in tactical testicles the product it was a fishery released in two thousand seventeen good dental some some play in the gun, you know, blog sphere had some. Had some immediately success that I thought. Oh, wow. This is incredible. You know? So like you wake up to like fifty orders for them. And you're like, oh, I can retire now. But after that first burst sales slowed down Anthony found it was hard to market the product magazine advertising was too expensive sporting goods stores were turned off by the whole testicle thing.

"Car? Shea doesn't is. Eighty five year old. Wilson's attitudes towards truck. Not is easier to understand when you consider that. Most of his customers are not exactly sincere about truck. That's either. Don't get me wrong. Some of them are insincere a toxic way. Wilson was recently asked to send a pair of truck nuts to Senator Jeff flake after flake insisted there'd be an FBI investigation into Brett Kavanagh. The message unmistakably being that flake should grow a pair. But most of orders come from people who either truck nuts are bit of tongue in cheek self lamb poontang. So funny, they have to have them on their car or so ridiculous. The absolutely do not want them on their car. Wheels of let's say somebody in an office somewhere. We want to give a gag gift. Wilson's assessment of his audience is born out by reviews of truck nuts on Amazon and Facebook of which this is a Representative example, the look feel emotion of these nuts hanging from my friend's truck. Made it look as though his worc- truck had a real set of nuts dangling from it. The only downside was that. My prank ended up making him. Look more manly. Driving down the road would buy these nuts for a prank again. That's our cast review was left by a real estate agent in Michigan named Matt Zahn. I'm involved in the prank war with a neighbor. Cross the lake and we've been kind of going back and forth doing pranks Matt's. Prank war has involved. Among other things wiring afraid shot and drawing a giant penis on a lawn in the middle of the night. You know, it'd be pretty funny. If I were to get some truck nuts and put him on his truck and. If he, you know days he would drive around town with them hanging there. He's a loan officer. So you had to actually go to acquaint house and your loan application that day, so he like pulled him their driveway. They're like out there talking, and I'm sure that the clients show them on the back of his truck. So it's supposed to be funny about this prank. Is that if you saw Matt's friend driving down the street, you would think he was sincere about his truck nuts. You'd assume that he was the type of guy who had truck nuts on his car because he wanted them there, even though he's not typically when you see somebody that has struck nuts. You're like, oh that guy's. Yes. Probably do Spag. What about it communicates? Someone who really have it is a douchebag think that if you have a pair of nuts on your truck. I mean, this is a certain personality type that would have that. And not have as a joke. Matt is not alone into the way. He's using truck nuts. Poking fun at Dushi rednecks, basically is different from how they're meant to be used an off brand usage of the product. But Matt and his friend are not outlier truck. Nuts consumers pranksters jokers and people sending up the people who they think the product is supposed to be four are part of the products core constituency. I was not expecting that going into the story. I was under the impression that truck not still thing because the people who were sincerely into truck knots. But it starting to look like truck nuts might still be a thing. Because people who are insincerely into truck nuts was the ironic macho truck not are real or was he a kind of figment of the imagination the answer to that. It turns out is a little bit of both. Now's the time that we talk about a sponsor this episode is brought to you by plug into the present a campaign raising awareness about electric vehicles. More and more people are discovering how electric cars can fit into their lifestyle with the days electric vehicles limited to your work commute, more and more models of a range of over two hundred miles per charge. So you can drive just about anywhere. We can road trips out of town errands. You name it. Driving electric is just like driving a conventional car. And there are a lot of fun to drive to have you ever experienced instant tour. Learn more about electric vehicles at plug into the present dot com. That's plug into the present dot com. Okay. Back to the show. As we were investigating truck nuts. We kept coming across other testicle based access re's. I was so flummoxed at this point about who truck nuts customer base was that. I thought it might be clarified to speak with some of these other companies in the hopes that they could shed some light on this particular question. One product in particular stood out. It's been mocked almost as much as truck nuts. It's called noodles Nichols. Or Justice killer implants for dogs cats horses bulls any animal that is altered. Good Miller is the owner and inventor of noodles, which over five hundred thousand have been sold a musical were thought of in nineteen ninety three with the trauma that I went through neutering bloodhound they buck. Buck was a hundred eighty seven pound bloodhound. It was a dominant feature of his, you know. Being and I was opposed to neutering because buck would no longer be bucked. It's really it's for the owners. It's not really for the pets 'cause they don't care, right. Cure pets, do know that they've been neutered. But it's, you know, basically pet owners wanting their male dog to maintain its God, given look and what's wrong with that. I mean, if you don't like it don't buy it whether or not the animals, actually know or care about their testicles is not something I'm going to get into. But the question what's wrong with that? Is that the heart not just of noodles but of truck nuts too? And my most easygoing open-minded self things Scher. That's right. If you don't like them, just don't buy them. But my instincts really action is just like can we not be so hung up on balls masculine really has pride of place in our culture. Can we leave the dog balls out of it? Greg doesn't just make replacement testicles. He also makes them other cosmetic products, including replacement years, and is or is not a word in the world has ever been said, but noodles will just bring out the craziness and people it's encouraging people to neuter that would not neuter before that's reducing pet overpopulation. This made me wonder am I being super uptight about testicles, I wouldn't begrudge someone replacing their dogs mangled ear or I even if it wasn't medically necessary. So what's my issue with this particular body part? I like to think my feelings about noodles or affliction of my values. Maybe they're also just a reflection of my taste. And you know, that's cuter than seeing him. You know, why will up the street with his little things between and the idea of neutering him and eliminating that is just you know. Thank you. Especially so funny because when I was going to say his like instead of the cute like every the dog with just like waddling along with that looks so like Masty. Yeah, there's really in your face like, but you obviously feel about on your attitude towards the product. And I mean, I'll admit noodles or as controversial as religion and politics noodles adjust acknowledging a reality that some people really care about balls, and that's true across the political spectrum as a second product on our tour of testicle related excess Sary's bike balls demonstrates bike balls are Kickstarter funded bicycle lights in the shape of testicles. They give off a pink light and hang low from underneath a bike seat right below where a male cyclist genitals would rest like it takes grit and balls to ride on the roads, Heather lamb is an industrial designer based in Toronto who's one of the co creators of bike balls. It reminds other. Drivers that you are human too because. A part of your flushes cyclists and pickup truck drivers are imagined to be a very different demographic, politically speaking. But apparently some members of both groups would like to trick out there ride with a pair of nuts, though, bike balls are not gilding the lily the way that truck nuts are they're not trying to make the most powerful vehicle on the road seem even more macho they are evidence. If you needed it that ball jokes and ball appreciation more generally cross the aisle. I've heard people will tend to yell. Nice. Both. That they've seen you. So that like latest keeping safe. And you're getting a couple of. Yes. The bipartisan nature of testicle related accessories. Was further underscored to me by the conversation. I had about the most provocative accessory of all gonna calls. Plastic testicles that clip onto the barrel of gun. Are we shut against goals via the company's Facebook page. I was pretty sure known is gonna respond to me slate. His written a lot about the need for gun control and a reputation as liberal site. Made me assume they would be very reticent to speak with us. And to my surprise, the owner Anthony Melles rope saying no worries on political orientation LL Gunston does have a wacky audience. My initial vision for the product was this is something that gun owners will by kind of as a goof to make your friends laugh at the range, and so the packaging and most of the marketing is geared towards image a gun accessory, look serious, thus the gun schools marketing features and animated sporty woman who smiles holding a gun, and it has the tagline the pants down leader in tactical testicles the product it was a fishery released in two thousand seventeen good dental some some play in the gun, you know, blog sphere had some. Had some immediately success that I thought. Oh, wow. This is incredible. You know? So like you wake up to like fifty orders for them. And you're like, oh, I can retire now. But after that first burst sales slowed down Anthony found it was hard to market the product magazine advertising was too expensive sporting goods stores were turned off by the whole testicle thing. And it wasn't getting much traction on Amazon he was getting ready to abandon the whole thing. And then this past Christmas happened hold a lot of guns. Two goals if because it sounded audience and its audience is not gun owners. It is people in locking gun owners. It's for the person that knows a gun owning person that wants to be fun to them.

"Are your weird? Weather weekend. We had I was at home for most of the day because when the tracks closing a lot of stuff done at home. And I offered to take my my wife's bike up to the bike store. Embarrassed new tires, right? That's kind of romantic. I am. Wow. Yeah. And so I was out. I was even going to go white walls until I heard the the actual all black tires were more thorn resistant, if you're gonna ride around rose bushes your whole life, right? Yeah. So I take the bike up to literally a mile and a half from where I live in. It's pouring rain. It was sunshine and beautiful. I was working in the yard. I get up to the bike store. Pouring rain for about forty five minutes went to what does that panda express? Wow. Survived that. Are you still in orange chicken guy, or do you still giving each each time you go? It's another chance for more chicken and less better. You just try to, you know, not sweat your ass off and get through it by you have to have you have to get two items at panda express. I got another theory here, I got another fast food theory here, usually I was just get the bowl with the main one item. But you gotta get two items. Because once you pick through the Grizzle and the fat and the craziness and the stuff that really, you know, you look at it like, wow. Is that those knuckles? What's going on there? Once you get through all that and pick all that stuff out. You got one side left. You gotta gotta double up. So you're sure of one side. And and then afterwards, and he just feel like, whoa. I don't know. I don't know, man. I guess, you know, a lot of fast foods not made for guys in their mid forties. Let's say treat for the youngsters out there. Sit well with you. I I got through it. It's just that. You know, you just reminded for the next two hours that you've made a bad choice in life. And that's what you do. That's bad choices as you get older are very evident. Like, I heard Oprah once and I don't take a lot of cues from Oprah. But I do learn once in a while. I'm open minded. Oprah's said your body will start to whisper to you. And then your body will start to talk to you. Then your body will raise its voice a little to you. And then your body will yell at you. And as long as you can make sure when your body's whispering to you to take care of it. You'll be better than the people that don't listen are people that ignored a lot of signs and then their bodies yell at him. So was your body yelling at you? Well, it's a yelling, obviously. But it's just I know it's temporary. Right. Like when you have nine hundred drinks the next day your body yells at you all day. Right because you had a great time that night before. And then the whole day and a half or two days afterwards you pay for it. And you pay for it man, you pay for it in spades. The older you get when you were younger you drink for eight hours. You're hung over for one hour. And as you get older that flip flops on you. And now you drink for one hour, and you're hung over eight hours, and you just can't handle it can't handle the truth. But I did notice this when I went out to to the bike store that I was going to go to KFC before panda express. Right. And the reason why did go to panics rescues KFC was full is like nine cars and the dry through. So I pulled into go inside. There's thirty people inside might it's a small little tiny KFC. You can barely fit the five of us in there is that the one off of Hollywood way and victory right wall to wall people, and I'm like, wow. What church let out is it a school thing is that a, you know. Like a school carnival. What what's in the area that everybody got out and went right to KFC. Nothing did my research nothing. I have a theory though. They're capitalizing on the fact that. Chick-fil-a is closed on Sunday. Oh, so people go to Chick-fil-A it's closed. The kids have their is in their mouths and their stomachs set on the chicken and boom right over to KFC KFC is making a huge comeback. Just by being open on Sunday. That's could be closed every other day of the year be open on Sunday, and they make a huge profit. That's the KFC that I think that screwed me over and I got the last laugh. That if you haven't heard that story is a true story. And I went to that I went to a KFC, and I was sitting right at the counter, and this woman was at the counter and she helped a guy in front of me. And then it was my turn. And I'm sitting there, and she looks beyond me. She looks like over my shoulder. And I get in her view, and then she looks down. And then she does some stuff in the back there. And then she looks up again. And doesn't see me for some reason. Standing right in front of her or she didn't want to see you. And she starts counting money in the register. And I'm standing there, and obviously have an ordered right? She hasn't there's nobody else the restaurant, and I'm standing there. I'm staying in there. She goes back and fusses with the chicken, and I'm still standing there and she comes back. She sits down as a chair. They're interested down. Nothing man. I couldn't get anything going with her. She just didn't want to serve how much time we're talking about literally like five minutes. I mean, it wasn't like somebody will be with unisex. Never nothing nothing. And I didn't want to say what's going on. Because that's. That that's their job to make sure that people are taken care of. It's not my job to announce myself. It is it's not. So I get my car and I drive through the drive through lane. And I order the family recipe. The family dinner twenty piece of chicken, I said, give me eight sides. Oh, very excited in there. Give this customer. Yeah. The to give me the coleslaw, huge coast law. Give me this give me that, you know, give me the desserts, the the the pies the all that crap give me a bag, and it was I think it was like fifty eight or sixty eight thousand food so go to drive up to the window and to same Ladyman and now. Amer best friend, and she looks at main. And she goes, you know, and my windows up. Structure and not even look at her. Doing to her which just did to you. And then bangs on the window sixty dollars. Don't even look at her. Sir. Sixty eight dollars about two minutes. Gone. Let you put all that crap away. Get people back. I don't sit and just tolerate that life. You got to keep people out of their toes. And somebody said, you gotta give her a break, you know, she's working at KFC. Well, guess what I worked at fast food place. But I was a kid.
