A New Tactic for Ground Zero?

A Metro UK Daily Mail story found at SooperMexican’s website presents a new potential protest that could be used here in the US to persuade the Ground Zero megamosque developers to move their insult to an inoffensive location:

It seems an Austrian man upset his mosque neighbors by yodeling one day during their call to prayer. He was fined 700 euros (roughly $940.45).

The world has now come down to…


Greg Gutfeld, host of the 3 am show “Red Eye” on Fox News, has said he will construct a gay bar next door to the Cordoba Initiative mosque if they insist on locating themselves on the perimeter of the Ground Zero war memorial site. Perhaps Gutfeld should instead consider building a yodeling cultural center (complete with a gay bar).

Get ready for the grand opening sing-along now with the book How to Yodel: Lessons to Tickle Your Tonsils and Funnybone, by “world-famous yahooer” Wylie Gustafson. (CD included!)

Or for your listening pleasure, click on the picture above of I Love To Yodel!: The Best Of Country Yodel, Vol. 2 for yodel classics such as “Sweet Little Lover,” “Old Cockatoorali,” “Pappy’s Mountain Still,” “My Pony, My Guitar, And Me,” “Dreammyland Bay” and the eponymous “I Love To Yodel.” (Note this album is volume two.]

That’s for the good ol’ USA cowboy-style yodeling.

For those of you interested in the Alpine-style…and are willing to risk the high fine…

there’s U 2 Can Yodel, by “master yodeler” Kerry Christensen.


As Monty Python used to say, “And now, for something completely different”:

Cat Yodeling

A cat lawyer advises me that I should put this disclaimer: Don’t try this at home.
