Wed. Show Prep – Community Swear Jar Edition

Swearing is so bad in one Boston suburb that the police chief wants to fine people $20 for swearing in publicSort of a community swear jar of sorts. It would actually enforce a long standing, but rarely enforced law. Dangerous threat to freedom of speech or brave crusader in the fight against the coarsening of our culture?

Another example of parenting through public humiliation: A parent was sick of her daughter acting out, so she replaced her Facebook profile picture with a photo of her with an “X” superimposed over her mouth and the caption, “I do not know how to keep my (mouth shut)… I am not longer allowed on Facebook or my phone. Please ask why, my mom says I have to answer everyone that asks.” To get the picture taken down she had to send an individual response to everyone who asked explaining what she did and what she learned from the whole experience. (I’ll bet the first thing she learned was to change her Facebook password to something her mom doesn’t know)

Awkward moment of the day: Mitt Romney’s bin Laden Day event with Rudy Giuliani was interrupted by a rather rude protester. She started out by saying that Romney is racist and finished with a nice “F*** you, Mitt Romney!”

Charlie Sheen is suing a strip club because “it does damage to his reputation. I’ll let you think about that headline for a second….. The strip club named a VIP room after him.

Newt Gingrich told USA Today that he would be willing to campaign for Mitt Romney. The question is, if you’re Mitt Romney, would you want Gingrich to campaign for you? Newt has already released a video thanking his supports before he heads off into the sunset on Wednesday.
