Neighborhood's Cher Terrorist Has CDs 'Seized and Destroyed'

A Welsh man who played his Cher albums too loud has been fined £250 and had his music equipment and CDs "seized and destroyed" by authorities:

Cher"While [Karl] Wiosna was upset about the seizure and fine, he seemed most angry at being characterised as a Cher fan. 'I didn't play the music that loud,' he told Wales On Sunday, 'and it wasn't just Cher, I used to play heavy metal as well.' For weeks, Wiosna had been enjoying Cher – and, er, heavy metal – in his Phillip Street home. And he had been driving his neighbours batty. 'A legal notice under the Environmental Protection Act was served on Wiosna demanding he reduce the volume or stop playing music,' explained a Council statement. 'Just a week after the legal notice was received, officers were called to the address during an out-of-hours emergency by a neighbour....Environmental health staff in the front room of the property next to Wiosna's could hear the music so clearly they could pick out the lyrics.'"

  1. This is the exception when the death penalty is justifiable.

  2. I once had a neighbor, whose flat was just beneath my bedroom, who would come home drunk and stoned, turn on the Grateful Dead, blast his stereo so loud I could understand the lyrics and then he'd pass out, stereo blaring. I didn't think it could get any worse than that. Apparently I was wrong. Mr. Wiosna has even worse musical taste than my former neighbor.

  3. It's his own fault. He should have been listening to Stevie Nicks and Charlotte Church like a good Welsh boy.

  4. Those neighbors are just gypsies, tramps and thieves.

  5. Sadly, another Cher-related humiliation. Will her campaign of madness never end?!!?

    Take me home, indeed!

  6. My ex had a neighbor that used to blare "Honky Tonk Women" every Saturday morning at about 8am. It's amazing how you can like a song and then someone can ruin it. I can only imagine what murderous rage "Believe" would have induced in its place...

  7. I laughed when I noticed that under the clip it says "Andy in Cher." Probably many a gay men's dream, if not in her body than perhaps in her dressing room.
