It's Plastic

So here's a typical steel brushguard. Ideal for ploughing through thickets and hedgerows as they jump out in front of one's offroad vehicle while tooling around downtown Madison.

And here is a similar vehicle sporting a plastic brushguard. Does anybody know what this is good for? Running down artificial christmas trees? Pushing through plastic snow fencing? What? Why? How? Evolution or devolution?

Obviously devotees of the cargo cult. If you act and dress like the magic men, the Hershey Bars from heaven will fall from the skies.

Or maybe it's like the protective mimicry that have evolved in some varieties of butterflies.
