An analysis of over 600,000 business calls recorded– you know, for quality assurance — from all over the country revealed that Marylanders were second-most likely to utter a curse and, paradoxically, third-most likely to a utter a courtesy.

This doesn’t surprise me at all. I imagine it’s just the unresolved mash-up of Northern and Southern culture that defines the state, a mix that keeps either region from accepting us. (Every Northerner I know considers Maryland part of the South, which makes every Southerner I’ve ever told this to laugh hysterically.)

Oh well. #[email protected]% them very much.

By the way, I’d love to hear some of the calls that really tipped the scales!
