Swearing Ban Swells Coffers

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Off-color language by young Russians is proving a money-spinner for authorities in a southern region.

Regional officials near Belgorod, on Russia's border with Ukraine, introduced a ban on swearing in public in the summer as part of a cleaner-living program for their young folk.

They launched a drive against the use of strong language, particularly in front of older people and backed it with spot fines of up to 1,500 roubles ($50) for offenders.

The total collected in two months up to mid-September came to more than 510,000 roubles ($17,400), regional official Pavel Bespalenko was quoted as saying.


Yeah, this would fly over here..ok :screwy:
