    Woman faces jail time, fine for cursing at her toilet


    Associated Press


    SCRANTON, Pa. — Talk about a potty mouth.

    A Scranton woman who allegedly shouted profanities at her overflowing toilet within earshot of a neighbor was cited for disorderly conduct, authorities said.

    Dawn Herb could face up to 90 days in jail and a fine of up to $300.

    "It doesn't make any sense. I was in my house. It's not like I was outside or drunk," Herb told The Times-Tribune of Scranton. "The toilet was overflowing and leaking down into the kitchen and I was yelling (for my daughter) to get the mop."

    Herb doesn't recall exactly what she said, but she admitted letting more than a few choice words fly near an open bathroom window Thursday night.

    Her next-door neighbor, a city police officer who was off-duty at the time, asked her to keep it down, police said. When she continued, the officer called police.

    Mary Catherine Roper, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union in Philadelphia, took issue with the citation.

    "You can't prosecute somebody for swearing at a cop or a toilet," she said.




    New addition: Strange Laws form each state

    Yes these are ACTUAL laws for each state(we are starting in alphabetical order, so don't get offended)

    ALABAMA LAWS:

    Bear wrestling matches are prohibited.
    Incestuous marriages are legal.
    It is illegal to impersonate a person of the clergy.
    It is illegal to maim oneself to escape duty.
    You may not drive barefooted.
    Dominoes may not be played on Sunday.
    It is illegal to wear a fake moustache that causes laughter in church.
    Putting salt on a railroad track may be punishable by death.
    Boogers may not be flicked into the wind.
    It is legal to drive the wrong way down a one-way street if you have a lantern attached to the front of your automobile.
    You must have windshield wipers on your car.
    You may not have an ice cream cone in your back pocket at any time.
    Masks may not be worn in public.
    Women are able to retain all property they owned prior to marriage in the case of divorce. However, this provision does not apply to men.
    It is illegal for a driver to be blindfolded while operating a vehicle.

    Hope none of you Alabamians are breaking the law!


    ENJOY!!!

    Damn. How big of a duke did she have to drop in order to jack up her toilet? But I can relate, when I work on my homes plumming, I holler, spit, cuss and blaspheme Jesus. I must have better neighbors because no one has called John Q Law because of it.

    Seriously, I had my band-aid removed in a Toronto Tennis match in front of about 15 cops (security was tight when the top players were here), no one done anything about it.
