Cleaning up Ocean City?

Ocean City is considering putting up signs on the Boardwalk in an effort to clean up the language.boardwalk

Ocean City Council Secretary Mary Knight said she will propose “No Profanity Please” signs. Though the O.C. police wouldn’t be enforcing any ban on potty mouths, the idea first must be approved by the police commission and then the council.

“Usually young people, especially on Senior Week, people are cursing each other, but it happens all summer,” Yadigar Karsali, who owns a Boardwalk lemonade stand, told

However, here’s something to look forward to this summer if the signs go up: Photos posted on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere online showing a “No Profanity Please” notice adjacent to a Boardwalk shop displaying T-shirts with various four-letter messages.
