Singing The Addams Family Theme Song May Land You In Jail

Singing The Addams Family Theme Song May Land You In Jail

By Robert Paul Reyes

They`re creepy and they`re kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They`re all together ooky,
The Addams Family.
Their house is a museum
Where people come to see `em
They really are a scream
The Addams Family.
So get a witches shawl on
A broomstick you can crawl on
We`re gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family

Please forgive me, I realize that the Addams Family theme song will be running through your brain for the rest of the day. But it was essential to my article that I include the lyrics to this catchy tune.

" A Wingerworth, England, man has been sentenced to 20 weeks in prison after he repeatedly whistled the theme to "The Addams Family" TV show at his neighbors.

Leopold Wrobel, 51, was convicted of violating an antisocial behavior order directing him to cease whistling the tune at neighbors Michael and Kathleen Sharpe. Magistrates at a Chesterfield, England, court also found him guilty of two counts of harassment, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday." UPI

There are a few cranky and anti-social creeps who deliberately use the leaf blower at an ungodly hour in the morning to wake up their neighbors. But Wrobel makes those noisemakers look like Mister Rodgers, whistling the Addams Family theme song every time your neighbors leave their home is cruel and unusual punishment.

I hope that when Wrobel is in prison that his cell mate will whistle the theme song to Barney the Dinosaur while he forces Wrobel to play "Drop the Soap".

If the judge slapped Wrobel with a 20-week sentence for whistling the Addams Family song, what`s the punishment for humming the Brady Bunch theme song? 90 weeks?
