Will anyone be participating in California's No-Cuss Week?

Asked by ShiningToast (2101points) February 28th, 2010

The State of California has declared the first week in March as “No-Cuss Week”. Will anyone participate in said week? If so, what are some colorful alternatives to our favorite words?

f- no, we won’t go!

Actually, one of my favorite Northern California “alternatives” is used by the high school kids while on campus: “Hecka”

Fuck yeah count me in!

ShiningToast's avatar

@grumpyfish Ahh yes, the good ol’ Nor Cal Hella and Hecka.

Shit no. There’s more important things to do.
If anything, this stupid tradition makes me want to cuss more.
California is going broke and then we get this stupid crap. I’m so glad our elected officials in Sacramento are making such good use of their time.

Which cupid stunt came up with that freakin plan?

Likeradar's avatar

Why the fuck would anyone want to do that?

DeanV's avatar

I wish I could, but I don’t think I could make it through an entire week without cussing. It has sadly become part of my vocabulary.

So, I guess not. Shit.

ShiningToast's avatar

@dverhey I think we’re in the same boat.

TexasDude's avatar

Wait a second… isn’t California broke? Don’t they have better things to worry about than dirty words?

What fucking moron came up with this idea?

Likeradar's avatar

No really… why would anyone want to do this? What’s the point?

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

And how are they supposed to enforce this? Do you have to go on a time-out? No dessert after dinner? I prefer governments to act like governments and not like parents.

There are an increasing number of these “days” or “weeks”.I’d add my own, how about “National shut the fuck up you patronising bastards month” Now that’s a doozey.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Hell no. It’s all bullshit anyway right?

Berserker's avatar

Eeep, I’m glad we don’t have that here. I’d be out of a fucking job.

tinyfaery's avatar

I plan to cuss more that week to make up for the slack.

Blonderaven's avatar

I’m going to be different and say, why not? Count me in

New York is laughing at you if only because we need something to get our minds off our totally ineffective governor.

what @aprilsimnel said
Ha ha fucking HA

DominicX's avatar

Um, no. This reminds me of when my mom would do a “No TV Week”. lol. The state is not my parent. :)

I don’t think I could do it, either. I say “shit” too damn much. I don’t even necessarily use it as an expletive. I say things like “that was some fun shit”, “this shit is bananas B-A-N-A-N-A-S”, etc.

That shit is automatic for me.

Goddamn. I don’t think I could make it. Fuck. Good thing I live in Florida. ^_^

I will avoid swearing on here, and hopefully in real life.
That won’t be easy, because I really have a potty mouth.
I am hoping I can have the restraint to substatute the word Glenn Beck for any offensive word.

CMaz's avatar

Fuck California.

Dog's avatar

They raise our taxes then say we cannot swear?
Control freaks!

Sarcasm's avatar

I don’t get it.

Like.. what?
How do you make an official “no swearing” week? I don’t even..

How the fuck is there even a possibility for a law of that kind?

…This state. I swear. Is so weird.

thriftymaid's avatar

No, but this makes me laugh.

DeanV's avatar

I don enjoy how almost everyone that disagrees with this used some sort of profanity in their response…

Dog's avatar

I asked my husband this morning what he thought about it- and he who rarely swears strung out a line of profanity. Methinks EPIC FAIL.

DeanV's avatar

Oops, my answer above doesn’t make much sense.

I meant to say I do enjoy…

ShiningToast's avatar

@Basically everyone,

It’s not a mandatory thing. Nothing will be enforced, and it is pretty much just for fun.

Yes, frivolous indeed.

Sarcasm's avatar

@ShiningToast I can understand a frivilous funsies kind of thing. But if that’s the idea, why are they getting lawmakers in on this? Trying to connect the dots is what’s blowing my mind.

TexasDude's avatar

The part I find most ridiculous is that tax dollars have surely paid for this in someway. Not that they are my tax dollars, and not that I give two shits about the financial clusterfuck that California has become, but still…

ShiningToast's avatar

@Sarcasm I can agree with that.
