You can't make this stuff up

From the wire ...

"SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — 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."

...

This is the part of the blog when I want to write profanities to illustrate what a bunch of, well, crap this whole thing is. But I'll spare you the First Amendment exercise.

Instead, I'm going home to shout profanities at my toilet (which is not overflowing, thank you very much).

I live in Midtown Kingston, anyway, so my screams will be overshadowed by other people screaming while not getting citations for it.

Because this city rules, and that's something to scream about.
