A f***ing ban on cursing

Posted By on Thu, Mar 6, 2008 at 12:05 PM

CNN is reporting that a town outside of LA is banning cursing for a week.

That's some bullshit.

"So if you're headed to South Pasadena this week, be sure to turn down the volume on that Snoop Dogg CD, and, if the little old lady from Pasadena cuts you off in traffic, don't even think about flipping her the bird.

Not that police will slap cuffs on you and haul your sorry, er, butt off to jail in light of the proclamation passed Wednesday by the City Council. But you could be shamed into better behavior by the unsettling glares of residents who take their reputation for civility seriously.

'That's one of the purposes of this,' Mayor Michael Cacciotti said of his city's proclamation designating the first week of March as No Cussing Week. "It provides us a reminder to be more civil, to elevate the level of discourse."

The proclamation will be in effect until Friday, and then the first week of every March hereafter."

What has cursing ever done to anyone? Has an F-bomb ever killed an old lady? And truth be told old people curse all the time, especially after church when Sister So and So rolled up in there with the same hat that the old woman had on.

This PC shit has gone too far.

I wonder if this is a bandwagon Charlotte will hop on.
