This is a clip from the award-winning documentary “Nucking Futs: The Truck Nuts Story”.

I’ve you’ve never seen¬†truck nuts¬†while driving around this nation’s great highways–consider yourself blessed. I still remember the scarring double and triple-takes I made when I first encountered a pair hanging from the tow hitch of a truck.

Some states have even tried to pass laws to ban them.

Recently I started pondering a fanciful childhood origin story for whoever the inventor of the first truck nuts was. This comic strip is the fruit of that effort.
