    Blake has one of the top 5 photo blogs on the internet in my opinion.

    Love it. But you just have to feel for the Leicaphiles (or at least those who collect rather than use these marvelous little cameras) who take offense at the humor here!

    The problem with me is that I'd actually use those Leica Truck Nuts if they we're available for sale.
    I totally see myself using this.

    If The Nutsack contained a gyrostabilizer, that would be a useful device ...

    Well, it does lower the center of gravity a bit. And if someone has the nerve, they could use it as a grabhandle..

    I agree with Field: "Stupid consumerist junk". Although there are some nice products listed, the last thing I need this time of year is more things to buy.

    "A parody of stupid consumerist junk" is more accurate

    Do the balls come in chrome? I'm not partial to the panda look.

    It's a joke, dude.

    They do come in chrome, check the auto parts stores online.
    I doubt if anyone would be looked at askance while "cupping the balls" and taking a picture?
