What the Hell??

I’m always so glad to see local governments doing so well, they focus on stupid things.

South Pasedena (not to be confused with East, North or West Pasadena) has proclaimed the first week of March, from now on, to be a curse-free week in their happy little city.

What the #%@* is wrong with these people?

It should be every adult’s God-given right to curse. What happens when you have to insult your friends on guy’s night? What happens when your sports team screws up? What happens when you need to threaten your children?

I’m not saying one should have a potty mouth in mixed company (though I’ve never understood adults getting offended by a few mild swear words as long as they aren’t too offensive and directed at them). But besides being absolutely functional at times swearing is just good American fun.

Without swearing, we would never have had Richard Pryor. Without swearing, my grandparents would never have spoke to each other. Without swearing, 12-year-olds would fall back on doing drugs and having sex as an outlet.

That’s right – swearing keeps kids off drugs. And why does North Pasadena wants its children to take drugs?

It’s doesn’t make any &%$#@* sense.

    That’s so #@&% stupid. I say we head down there and beat the living $#%* out of those $*&^heads.

    Let’s do it…uh, who? The bikers or the dumb guys? What the hell – let’s beat up the old folks playing bingo.
    That was a little joke, for our readers in Rossmoor. I grew up just down the street from Rossmoor. I used to climb on the globe with my delinquent friends, before they got rid of it.
    I still have to do that thing you sent me, Joe. I haven’t forgotten.

    How do you get a 75 year old lady to say the word “F#@&”?

    Just yell “BINGO!”
