A Bill So Bad, I Can't Believe It's Not Buttars'

[Law] Utah may be slipping as America's No. 1 nanny-government state—at least if this bill manages to pass. It seeks to make the use of profanity a criminal offense in South Carolina. (It also places the crime of saying "shitdamnfuckhell" in the presence of a 17-year-old on par with child prostitution.)

The most shocking thing about it is not that an elected state senator believes that such a measure could pass constitutional muster—but that a Utah legislator didn't think of it first.

(But keep it on the QT—we don't want to be giving them any big ideas.)

  1. I think this may be the best headline ever.

  2. Orrin Hatch actually wrote this bill but had to put it on the back burner when he decided that blowing up home computers to protect the entertainment industry was more important than saving the children from brain damaging foul language. That is when South Carolina took advantage of our Senator's lack of foresight.

    I also heard a rumor that Super Dell Shanze was a co-sponsor of the bill.

  3. I thought that the freedom of speech was one of our unalienable rights. Apparently I was wrong...
