Australian Pottymouths Fined Up To $300 For Public Cussing

Civil liberties nightmare or a f**king great idea? Police in Queensland, Australia, now have the authority to fine citizens $100 to $300 for committing the “public nuisance” of cussing in public. Queensland’s head of state, Anna Bligh, said to expect a 20 percent rise in public nuisance complaints, based on trial programs in South Brisbane and Townsville. Why are Aussies so concerned about naughty language? They’re not. Apparently, swear words are just a moneymaker. Bligh said that targeting public pottymouths (along with those who pee in public and other acts of disorderly conduct) could generate the government some major bucks. Watch your mouths, Aussies!

No S**t! A Cuss-Free Week In California

California politicians are getting really creative about ways to make nice. They’re banning swear words for a week. Assemblyman Anthony Portantino created a “Cuss Free” bill after he got inspired by a middle schooler’s movement to start a “No Cussing Club” at his school. California’s State House passed a bill today approving a “Cuss Free Week,” effective this Sunday. They’re not going to get all crazy with it, arresting people who drop the f-bomb on the street or anything, but they are planning to put penalty jars all over the Capitol for accidental cusses and donate the proceeds to charity. Based on the stats that say the average swearer cusses about 80 to 90 times a day, they may be able to raise enough spare change to make a dent in the state’s deficit. How f**king cool is that?
