Watch your mouth, Ashburn!

By Caitlin Gibson


An annual survey conducted by Business Insider magazine has concluded that Ashburn, Va. is the nation's most obscene city -- stealing the crown from last year's winner, Herndon.

The survey used comedian George Carlin's famous "seven dirty words you can never say on television," plugged them into Google Trends, and then assigned a score to cities across the country based on the frequency of foul terminology in their Web searches. This year, Ashburn took the prize.

(Herndon stayed on the list, taking third place, according to the survey.)

Used to live in Ashburn. Didn't hear much cursing but some of the people there were complete snobs ie. the rules apply to others, not them (this includes the redskins). Watch out for piles of dog poop when you walk on Ashburn sidewalks,
