Watch: Canadian Man Pulled Over and Ticketed. For Singing 'Too Loudly...'
Sometimes it's nice to take a break from all the leftist violence and Hollywood gas-baggery. Soak in the funnies. Life provides plenty of them. Like this guy's unfortunate incident, where he was pulled over for singing too hard in his car. IN HIS CAR.
A Montreal driver says his passionate rendition of a cheesy 1990s pop hit has netted him a $149 fine.
On Sept. 27, Taoufik Moalla was on his way to buy a bottle of water, happily singing along to C+C Music Factory’s 1990 song “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” when he says he heard a police siren blaring behind him.
“I was thinking they wanted to pass, but they called on the speaker, ‘Please go to the right side,’” Moalla told CTV Montreal. “I stopped and four police came, two on each side, and checked the inside of the car. Then they asked me if I screamed. I said, ‘No, I was just singing.’”
Moalla said police checked his licence and registration and then came back with a $149 dollar surprise: a ticket for screaming in public.
No musical joy allowed. Welcome to Canada, b*tch.
Not surprising that it's come to this in the Great White North. Canucks still haven't exactly figured out the whole laws and regulations thing (see CANADA: New Law REQUIRES Parents Respect Children's "Gender Preferences." Or Else... and Canada: Comedian Mike Ward Fined $35K... for 'Offensive' Jokes?!).
Fortunately this man and his wife have a solid sense of humor about the whole thing.
Moalla’s wife, however, said she wasn’t surprised that her husband’s vocals netted him a fine.
“She told me, if it was for singing, I’d have given you a ticket for $300,” he said.
Looks like Canadian police have diddly squat to do out there (see CANADA: Ex-Muslim Woman Protests Against Sharia. Police Silence Her!). Their big busts include disrupting the flow of spontaneous singing and stopping "mean" jokes. Serious business, guys. Try to contain your laughter.
Okay, now back to the important stuff...
