In a move which is sure to enrage millions of drunken football hooligans, swearing has been banned in Salford Quays. This is in Manchester, one of the roughest cities in the UK. Now many of you reading this may have the misconception British people are polite, stiff upper lip, tea drinking sorts. This is seriously wrong – the vast majority of Brits are drunk, belligerent, and they will swear at the drop of an… anything.
Bemused local and national journalists (such as the Manchester Evening News and the BBC) got a hold of the story and went berserk, prompting much hilarity and joviality through the use of casual profanity. Be warned – swearing is the work of the Devil and you will be judged for your depraved behaviour!!
No Swearing in Salford Quays
Old Trafford is located in the region, which is notorious for chants such as “The referees a w******!” making us consider the move a canny way for the police to earn around £500,000 per match. Football hooligans are renowned for their potty mouths, which is the only real reason we can figure the council has made such a law.
The new law means depending on the severity of the obscenity, different outcomes will apply. As we all know, certain expletive are more offensive then others, which will warrant either a minor fine, a large fine, a larger fine, a prison sentence, or immediate execution if a particularly provocative combination is used.
The news has been welcomed by locals, many of whom are fed up with rowdy football crowds, chavs, and ironic Hipsters who have ruined the area with the area with their depraved profanities. One local, John Johnson, said: “I’ve f***ing well lived ‘ere for twenty years! It’s a f***ing disgrace they can go around effing and jeffing like that! I’m f***ing sick of it!” He was promptly hauled off to prison after this quote was taken, where he will serve a 30 year sentence.
