I see no problem with it. If I'm going to have to tow construction equipment around all day, might as well get my butt massaged and blast the tunes while doing it.

Well, I'd follow up with Weird Al's "Fat," but I can't do those moves any more...

Those 'truck nuts' have to be the dumbest thing Ive ever seen...in a close second are those trucks with ridiculously over sized exhaust pipes/stacks ( I saw one the other day that looked like it was from a cruise ship, no kidding, it was at least 18-20" dia!!)


I get the statement guys that do this are trying to make..'my truck is BIG and POWERFUL'...but Im not sure if they realize majority of people (that even notice it) see it as a BIG announcement of how 'little' of a man they are!! lol
