    Ohio is the Sweariest State in the Union!

    We here in WV seem to be pretty good 'cussers' as well, but Kentucky's downright angelic.

    Re: Ohio is the Sweariest State in the Union!

    Based on my own personal living experiences, people in upstate New York are the "swearingest", while people in Kentucky are the least "swearingest". Even the women in upstate New York drop the F bomb in regular conversation. I don't swear much myself (unless I'm on the golf course; that tends to bring it out of me), so it took me awhile to get used to the folks of NY. I've also lived in Texas, Ohio and WVa, but was too young to get a feel for the lingo of the land. I always wonder how surveys like this are taken?

    Caller: Would you like to take a survey?

    NY homeowner: **** no. <click>

    KY homeowner: Sure, no problem.

    Is that how it works?

    Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master. In the heat of battle my father wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan.

    It comes from losing all those bowl games. And Dusty Baker as manager for several years. Here comes the ******ing bunting again.

    I don't know about upstate, but people here in NYC and Long Island are amongst the sweariest people I've ever met.

    I've lived just outside of Indianapolis for two years and find the people here to be very courteous.

    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.
