Michael and Susan (Best Of) Yodeling
I’ve had my share of musical history. You may not know it but I can Yodel. I know there’s not a lot of call for Yodeling anymore, but I’m willing to help out. You can hear more by clicking the play button at the end of this post.
“An Austrian court has recently fined a 63-year-old citizen, identified only as Helmut G., for yodeling while mowing his lawn!
He 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. In Muslim tradition, the Muezzin is the chosen person at a mosque who leads the call to prayer at Friday services and the five daily times for prayer. Unfortunately for Helmut G., his neighbors were in the middle of a prayer when he started to yodel so he was fined 800 Euros after judges ruled that he tried to offend his neighbors and ridicule their beliefs. Helmut G. insisted 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.”
