Man gets sick benefits for heavy metal addiction

Man gets sick benefits for heavy metal addiction
December 14, 2011, 08:14:07 PM
Roger Tullgren, 42, from Hässleholm in southern Sweden has just started working part time as a dishwasher at a local restaurant.

Because heavy metal dominates so many aspects of his life, the Employment Service has agreed to pay part of Tullgren's salary. His new boss meanwhile has given him a special dispensation to play loud music at work.

"I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap," Tullgren told The Local.


I'm speechless. One of the very few times I've actually laughed out loud at something on the internet.

This guy will eventually become that awesome, portly, white-haired dude that goes mental at all of the local shows.

I fucking love that dude.

Blessed are the sick benefit receivers.

To put some perspective on this, this guy had apparently been a major thorn in the side of the government for years, being unable to function without an hourly dose of Judas Priest. With the Swedish state's generally far-gone intervention policies, this was the unavoidable result.

School governors have sacked a philosophy teacher from his job after discovering his secret life - as a blood smeared death metal rock singer.

By day shaven-headed Thomas Gurrath, 29, discussed ethics with his 14-year-old pupils at his high school in Stuttgart.

But by night he calls himself The Bloodbeast and writhes around on stage covered in animal blood with topless backing singers and his band Debauchery.
