Four Letter Words Starting With An Old Favorite

Curse words have been making the news lately.  The most startling report shows that cursing can actually help relieve pain.  When you smash your toe in the dark, hit your finger with a hammer, or otherwise cause injury to yourself a well dropped swear word actually makes you feel better.   I was stunned by these results…and somewhat happy.

The newest cursing news shows that researchers are really running out of stuff to look into.  They took the time to see which state in our great nation, swears the most.  Yes, really, a report to discover which state has the foulest mouths.

It comes as no surprise to me.  The winner is a four letter state itself, OHIO!  Long time readers on my ramblings will remember my previous blog about my problems with the Buckeye state.  But I was shocked to learn that my mid-western neighbors were America’s Biggest Potty Mouths.

Ohioans swear once every 150 conversations.  Doesn’t sound too bad, but it is double the rate that the good people of Washington State.  Washington State came in as the least cursing state.

All these leads me to believe there is another study to be done.  Are the people of Ohio just lazy with their language, or are they just the clumsiest people in the nation verbally relieving their pain . . . . . . . .
