With a state budget crisis going on that has gutted education, restaurant inspections, and vaccinations, (among many other state services) you might think SC would have something better to worry about, but no.
First, we have some sherriff’s department desperate to find it’s fifteen minutes of fame after Butterface Phelps was caught smokin’ a little of that “ooooo weeee” :
“COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina authorities in the county where Michael Phelps was spotted smoking from a marijuana pipe say they are considering a criminal charge against the Olympic superstar.
Cowan did not specify what charge was being considered and declined to discuss details of the investigation.
The photograph was first shown in a British tabloid Sunday. News of the World said the picture was taken during a November house party while Phelps was visiting the University of South Carolina.
Phelps and his advisers did not dispute the photo’s authenticity. He has issued a public apology. “
And, second, a South Carolina state senator has proposed to outlaw profanity. And it applies to both oral and written profanity. To which I say: come and get me you fucker!
