A 21 year old man has been taken into custody for using an extremely repetitive phrase one too many times.
Daryl Simpson of Perdmontemps, St. David was arrested on Friday night for “aggressive overuse of annoying words”, a police statement read.
Police say they were called into action after repeated complaints made to the Bureau of Taste and Decency that numbered in the 100s. Upon perusing Mr. Simpson’s Facebook account, officers were stunned by the sheer number of offences.
On one day alone, Mr. Simpson used the phrase approximately 500 times, including the following:
- Beneath a photo of a cute kitty yawning – “Yuh tellin’ me ’bout dat cat”
- Beneath an image of Mitt Romney’s face superimposed over Gangnam Style singer, Psy – “Tellin me bout dem Republicans”
- In a comment referring to the Space Shuttle’s retirement – “Sad news. Yuh tellin me bout dat partially reuseable launch system and orbital spacecraft operated by the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration for human spaceflight missions from 1981 to 2011”
Mr. Simpson is being held without bail.
