Myrtle Beach SC: Cussing Could Get You Jail Time & $500 Fine PDF Print E-mail


If your travel plans include Myrtle Beach, be careful with your words. Considering all the extremely foul words we endure these days in night clubs, movie houses and on cable TV, this oceanside town law is like a breath of fresh air.

Your travel4seniors.com editor did active Navy duty in two wars and am certainly familiar with curse words, and maybe spouted a few of themlf when people were trying to kill me. Also, I’ve experienced filthy utterances from pioneer cursers including Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Richard Pryer, Sarah Silverman and other stand-up toilet mouths.

So, maybe the Myrtle Beach cursing ban is a step back to more gentle, articulate speech times. Profane language there is a misdemeanor disorderly conduct offense by city ordinance, and offenders face a possible 30 days in the town jail and/or a fine of up to $500.
