Go ahead, have a few drinks, watch some TV. If you get a little heated, let off some steam by swearing at the screen as loud as you want. It's your own home, right? Martin Solomon is probably screaming "wrong," as the 62-year-old plumber in the U.K. has been fined for shouting "foul and offensive language" at his television. The fine, along with court costs, amounts to about $225.

The pricey gag order was imposed using a law against "anti-social behavior," applied to Solomon from a previous high-decibel bender. The neighbors who complained have two young children who were upset by Solomon's shouting.

Solomon admitted he was guilty, and his lawyer said that he has "tried very hard to comply" with the no-drunken-swearing-at-his-television order. An anti-social behavior counselor also attempted to summarize the cause of Solomon's problems: "Martin is a nice man but drink is the devil amongst him."

Drink may indeed be a problem, and Solomon's lucky his friends and neighbors never subjected him to drunken shamings.
