Apparently a woman was so annoyed by her boyfriend singing this song over and over that she attempted to strangle him to get him to stop:
Angered that her boyfriend would not stop singing that catchy “Thrift Shop” song by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, a Colorado woman allegedly choked and pushed her beau during a confrontation late Saturday.After Malson briefly left the residence, she returned and “began to listen to Macklemore’s song ‘Thrift Shop,’ which Hansen was singing while laying on the couch.” Malson, pictured in the above mug shot, told cops that Hansen sang the lyrics “over and over,” and that she asked him to stop “25 times” before the fracas began.
“He just annoyed me,” Malson told police.
The defense is expected to argue that the assault was justified.
Georgia got kind of a kick out of this since we routinely visit the local thrift shop to pick up books, musical stuff, and occasionally the odd piece of clothing.
