And Then, Old Footy, After Vimto….

Further to yesterdays Vimto and turkey post, and the wondering regarding the question, what treaty? Try this over at EUReferendum. Always a cracking read. Catch up here.

I'm not a footy follower, but found the following amusing. True to 'foggy form' it's from the past. In fact, so far back, you can probably insert any UK city footy club in the storey now.

Glasgow Rangers manager flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi play Football and is so impressed he arranges for the lad to come over to Scotland.

Two weeks later Rangers are 4-0 down to Aberdeen with only 20 minutes left. The manager gives the young Iraqi striker the nod and on he goes.

The lad's a sensation - scores 5 goals in 20 minutes and wins the game for Rangers! The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and the media love the new star.

After the match the lad phones his mum to tell her about his first day in Scottish football.

"Hello mum, guess what?" he says. "I played for 20 minutes today, we were 4-0 down but I scored 5 and we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the media, they all love me."

"Wonderful." says his mum, "Glad you're so happy. Let me tell you about my day. Your father got shot in the street and robbed, your sister and I were ambushed, gang raped and beaten and your brother has joined a gang of looters, and all the while you were having such great time!!"

The young lad is obviously very upset, "What can I say mum, I'm so very, very sorry."

"Sorry? Sorry? Your sorry?" shouts his mum, "It's your bloody fault we had to move to Glasgow in the first place!"

"My parents have always been there for me, ever since I was about seven."
