Right? Can you imagine not being able to swear in a bar? Isn't that bizarre?
HOLYFUCKINGSHIT! I would be arrested and receive a life sentence.
That would make two of us. I swear multipule times a day. I wonder how they would work the fines and jail time...wow
Big Dude: What'erya in fer?
Me: I said fuck a lot of fucking times
Big Dude: Thats ruff, I shaked the store clerk
i was in my local last week and the the barman said "duffy, will you stop fuckin cursin you dirty mouthed bollox you" the irony escaped him like indian food after indian food
Exactly. That's what really irritates me.
Exactly. And why would a bar want to prevent someone getting drunk? lol
Let the bars themselves make rules if they so please. Mo's Tavern in whatever-town is perfectly entitled to have a list of rules saying "No swearing, be good little kiddies, no excessive drinking, no getting drunk, ect"
But a town-wide ban? Government, get out of there. That's not your place.
I agree with this.
Originally in a comedy stand up Eddie Izzard had made this very comment that one day the bars would become smoker, swearing, drinking free. So it was slightly ironic when stumbling on this.
And if you're going into a bar, we assume you should already know that A) there will undoubtably be swearing and B) Drinking accompanied by loud music and C) Smoking.
Land of the restricted freedom and home of the angry.
So I wont visit bars in st Louis.
Oh, St Louis you can still drink. :) It's St. Charles, apparently.
This article appeared in our paper yesterday. I saw the headline, which was something along the lines of "City Considering Banning Profanity in Bars", and said, "What the...?" Then I looked at the first line of the article and burst into laughter. My husband thought I was insane. :)
LOL! It's insanity, isn't it?
WTF indeed......who thinks thats a good idea or could ever work?? A crazy person prehaps.....
PS I found my self having to get up @ 4am this morning unable to sleep.....I understand!
Doesn't it totally suck!? I'm so drained and crabby today! And I woke up to a flippin' creditor trying to extract more money from me that I all ready paid. *hissssss*
my completely PC opinion is that that bill is retarded.
Well, I don't know if the bill was born with downs syndrome or muscular dystrophy...
Sorry. I just hate the use of the word retarded for situations like this. Same way I hate the word gay being used for this kind of thing too.
how can you take away table dancing, thats just unamerican
LOL! Exactly!!! Swearing and girls dancing and undressing on tables is more American then Apple Pie!
my first idea to comment was "well hell, why don't they just ban drinking too. that would definately cut down on the rowdyness..." but people already beat me to that point...damn...need to get up earlier.
so my second stab at wit is...i'm sure there are words, besides censorship to describe these acts. but since i speak niether Arabic, or Korean, i don't know what they are.
fuckers...try to ban my swearing and booty shaking...see what you get...
They can pass that law if they want, but its unconstitutional. Honestly, first it was no smoking in bars, now they want to ban swearing...what's next? No drinking?
Exactly. Pisses me off!! And I for one miss being able to go into a bar in my favorite cities and smoke a damn cigarette. I know that's not a very popular opinion to have, and people would prefer that I beat my child, or vote Republican then smoke, but oh well.
And people think I'm going overboard in thinking this country is heading for a Big Brother state.
I've heard about this a few days ago, frankly it's par for the course as far as legislation goes these days. It's unconstitutional, of course.
Though I can see the delicious irony of them passing the law and then getting whacked for it when they forget themselves on a night out.
Right? I'm really concerned about the future of this country.
