Maryland curses more than most states

Marylanders may be some of the most foul-mouthed folks in the country, but at least they'll say please and thank you in between their curse words.

Residents of The Old Line State are the second most-likely to curse during phone calls to businesses, according to a study that analyzed recordings of{ } 600,000 such calls from across the country. The upside, according to a blog post from The Baltimore Sun, is that Maryland residents are also the third most-courteous callers in the nation.

Maryland was second only to Ohio in the most-likely-to-curse rankings. New Jersey, Louisiana and Illinois rounded out the remainder of the foul-mouthed top five.

In the most-courteous rankings, Maryland finished third behind both Carolinas (South was first, North second). Louisiana finished fourth and fifth on that list.
