“Any jar is a swear jar if you can’t open the lid”

A swear jar is supposed to prevent swearing by costing the swearer some money. Many people swear when they can’t open a jar.

Wikipedia: Swear jar
A swear jar (also known as a swearing jar, cuss jar, swear box or cuss bank) is a device intended to discourage people from using profanity. Every time someone uses profanity, others who witness it collect a “fine”, by insisting that the offender put some money into the box. The container may be made of glass, porcelain, or metal, and may have a lid with a slot. From time to time, the accumulated money may be used for some agreed-upon purpose, or contributed to charity.
