why would you?

While driving to work this morning, I passed a truck that was covered entirely, with the exception of the glass and tires, in a camoflauge print. Now I know hunting is big here in the south but why on earth would you camo-fy your vehicle? If you took it hunting, chances are you would lose it! You won't blend in with traffic on the interstate since you now stick out like a sore thumb. The boy driving this truck looked happy as a hog in mud. He looked ready to have some good ole boy fun! His mandatory 4 wheeler was on the back of the truck, his hunters orange hat was hanging on the gun rack in the cab and the mandatory Browning and John Deere stickers were plastered all over the back glass.

That leads me to yet another vehicle I see almost every morning. It is a truck that has bull horns on the front where the hood ornament would normally be located. Think Boss Hogg from the Dukes of Hazzard. What is the significance of that? Will his cows follow him when he drives into the pasture? Will it scare the cows when he drives into the pasture? Will it scare other cars and motorists into thinking his truck is actually a bull? I would be interested to hear his reasoning behind this.
