Enraged Brit trashes Bulgarian karaoke
Locals murder Queen classic, get slapped
An enraged Brit spent 24 hours in jail and was fined 60 quid for terminating a Bulgarian karaoke with his fists - a small price to pay for bringing to an end a tuneless rendition of Queen's We are the Champions belted out by a couple of melodicidal locals.
Having assaulted the two men responsible for the outrage, 40-year-old Kevin Tester of Eastbourne proceeded to trash the Techhouse karaoke restaurant in the Black Sea holiday resort of Sunny Beach. He later told police he had been provoked by the "bad singing" and "bad English", Ananova reports.
As well as the fine, Tester faces compensation claims from the victims and the bar owner. We doubt if the summons will be delivered by singing telegram.
And the IT angle? None that we can immediately think of, although we would like to spend some time with Mr Tester in a packed commuter train where some spotty youth is singing along to his iPod. We're prepared to cough the fine should anything kick off. ®
