    Default Study says Ohioans swear more than other states

    in our defense one of the studies was done monitoring calls to CABLE COMPANIES....who doesn't swear when they call the cable company?

    Ohio was ranked worst for cursing and was in the bottom five for using "please" and "thank you."



    So much for the mild-mannered Midwest.

    A recent study claims that Ohioans - not famously abrasive New Yorkers - have the foulest mouths in the nation.

    Residents of the Buckeye State, who have the reputation of being God-fearing goodie-two-shoes, were found by Seattle-based mobile marketing company Marchex to use some seriously unsavory language.


    The company analyzed more than 600,000 phone calls from the last 12 months, mostly consumer to business calls, including cable companies and car dealerships. Using voice-recognition software, they were able to pick out the choice words that are not spoken in polite conversation.

    The institute found that Ohioans let slip a four-letter word in every 150th conversation or so. Other states with "sailor" language included Maryland, New Jersey, Louisiana, and Illinois.

    Thanks for sharing, Daisy - that was MOST revealing! I wish they'd do something similar over here as, personally, I find this sort of thing quite fascinating!

    I am proud of our swearing heritage.

    It all started with Ralphie in A Christmas Story. He beat up that ginger with no soul and the swearing caught on

    Team OHIO. FUCK YEAH

    I believe it, they are also quite fond of the N-word in Northern Ohio as well.....every time I go back to where I was raised it takes me a moment to adjust to hearing that so causally thrown around.

    Maybe this has something to do with it.
