Andrei From the department of how absurd

Simon Ledger, an English pub singer found himself on the wrong side of the Law for singing the perennial old disco favorite "Kung Fu Fighting" in a bar.

Well fair enough, I hear you say, that's a dreadful old song that should have been put out of its misery years ago. It's an affront to the ears.

But hold your horses, just a second, the reason why Simon Ledger found himself being grilled by the police is that a passing Chinese gentleman took offense believing the song to be a racial taunt directed at his person.

And the police instead of sending the complainant away with a flea in his ear about wasting police time and hardening up and the like arrested Simon Ledger.

You'll be pleased to know according to the BBC
Hampshire Police said Mr Ledger was questioned on suspicion of causing harassment, alarm or distress, but released because there was not enough evidence to prove a criminal offence had been committed
Not enough evidence prove a criminal offence had been committed - huh?

There is a Royal wedding tomorrow. That should provide the Brits a welcome diversion from woes of life 1n 21st century Great Britain.

For the next day or two anyway.

Great song. Here are the offensive lyrics that warrant a warrant for arrest:


Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

They were funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up and they were chopping them down
It's an ancient Chinese art and everybody knew their part
From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
He said here comes the big boss, lets get it on
We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand
The sudden motion made me skip now we're into a brand knew trip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they did it with expert timing

(repeat)..make sure you have expert timing
Kung-fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning
