    Austria: Judge Rules That Yodeling Offends Muslims

    Just when we thought that political correctness couldn't run anymore amuck than it already has. Someone needs to slap the **** outta this judge; I'm serious.

    It seems as though in Austria, the popular yodel is an insult to Muslims.

    An Austrian court has recently fined a citizen for yodeling while mowing his lawn, according to a report in The Kronen Zeitung newspaper.

    The citizen, 63-year-old Helmut G., was told by the court that his yodeling offended his next-door Muslim neighbors, who accused him of trying to mock and imitate the call of the Muezzin.

    For some Muslims a non-Muslim breathing is a problem.

    We already had four pages on this anti-Islamic dreck less than a month ago. They apparently annoyed him with their call to prayer, he started the yodelling as tit-for-tat, they stopped, but he kept on going, which constitutes harassment.

    Austrians should yodel until all Muslims leave the country. Then they should yodel on the Internet some more to make sure Muslims surfing the Web are offended. Austrians should start a TV show on yodeling. Yodeling should be a part of every Austrian sporting event.

    Maybe they could drown out those annoying buzzers that were used at the World cup.

    Well what do you expect when the very title of the thread is misleading...

    Does it offend all Muslims, or just these specific ones?

    Oh that's right. Nevermind

    Could have been worse. Could have been bagpipes. You know why bagpipers walk while playing? Because they are trying to get away from the noise.
