Yodelling offends praying Muslims, say judges
http://www.austriantimes.a ^

Posted on 11/30/2010 10:15:02 AM PST by marthemaria

An Austrian has been fined for yodelling while mowing his lawn, according to a report.

The Kronen Zeitung newspaper claims Helmut G. was told by a court in Graz, Styria, that his yodelling offended his next-door Muslim neighbours.

The men reportedly accused the 63-year-old of having tried to mock and imitate the call of the Muezzin. The daily paper writes the Austrian was fined 800 Euros after judges ruled he could have tried to offend them and ridicule their belief. The Muslims, whose nationalities were not revealed by the report, were right in the middle of a prayer when the Austrian started to yodel.

"It was not my intention to imitate or insult them. I simply started to yodel a few tunes because I was in such a good mood" the man told the newspaper today (Mon).

This could be solved with that invention by the Ruskkies....you know, a glass jar, some petrol, a rag and proper application of spark?

ROFL!

Stop me if you've heard this one:

Interesting piece of history

In 1872 the muslims invented the condom, using a goat's lower intestine.

In 1873 the British somewhat refined the idea by taking the intestine out of the goat first.

So...

1. Austrian man begins singing in his ancestral style that is his heritage.

2. Muslims move in next door.

3. Muslims sue to stop man from exercising his ancestral traditions in his own homeland.

4. Judge sides with Muslims over native citizens.

Sounds like all across America we need some traveling big rig vans, 40’ trailers outfitted with loudspeakers, and they travel across the country driving around mosques about to do their prayer thing and start broadcasting some yodeling.

Sounds an awful lot like the movie “Mars Attacks!”

People that wipe their butts with their hands offend me.

People who actually think that a mass murderer that likes to marry children is an actual prophet of God offend me.

People who cut parts out of young women offend me.

Hmmmm, guess MUSLIMS offend me.

So get the hell back to your desert where you belong.

I agree, yodeling was unfair to his neighbors.

Next time, may I recommend he should play this with the volume cranked to 11?

I guess what the Oklahomans will need to outlaw is not Sharia but judicial idiocy. Judges will just find decisions like this using their own stupid intuitions.
