Be careful how you swear in Michigan

Or you might face a midsdemeanor charge:

MCL 750.103 Cursing and swearing.

Cursing and swearing—Any person who has arrived at the age of discretion, who shall profanely curse or damn or swear by the name of God, Jesus Christ or the Holy Ghost, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. No such prosecution shall be sustained unless it shall be commenced within 5 days after the commission of such offense.

Luckily the statute of limitations for such an offense is five days -- or one thunderbolt.
