Miller Time or Mecca Time: Austrian Yodelling


You've heard of the offence of driving while drinking? How about yodelling while mowing?
An Austrian court has recently fined a citizen for yodeling while mowing his lawn, according to a report in The Kronen Zeitung newspaper.
Unfortunately for Helmut G., his neighbors were in the middle of a prayer when he started to yodel. The Kronen Zeitung reported that he was fined 800 Euros after judges ruled that he could have tried to offend his neighbors and ridicule their belief.
Helmut G. clarified that “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.”
Miller Time or Mecca Time? In Austria, it's Mecca Time.

The western impulse to appease Islam knows no bounds. It's getting ridiculous. And 800 Euros is not chump change.

Enjoy the video.
