…Clean It Up

California may be celebrating their first “Cuss Free Week” starting this coming Monday.

The state Senate votes on Monday, and if passed the first week of March will officially by free of foul language (in California).

There will be no actual enforcement of the “No Swearing” policy other than the label of “potty-mouth” being applied to those who choose not to participate. 

Personally, I’m a fan of this idea, but I do think there should be some sort of penalty.

Possibly some cussing jars?  People would be a lot less likely to curse if they’d have to pay up for swearing.

If this policy was enacted in Chicago, I could make a killing during my commute.

Of course, there would be some debate over what to charge.  I think 25 cents sounds fair, and $1 if children are present.

I realize this week will be tough for some of you Californians.

For those of you whose favorite adjective/verb/noun rhymes with “truck”, here are some substitutions/cover-ups for your usual choice:

  • Shucks
  • Gosh Darn It (variations include: “gosh,” “darn,” and “darn it”)
  • Shitaki Mushrooms
  • Fudge
  • Son of  a Biscuit Eater
  • Dag Nab It

Good luck California! 

Try not to fudge it up.
