Hello my Freaky Darlings,
Today’s twisted comedy Sunday comes courtesy of my brother, Johan.
The Lions manager flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi play rugby, is suitably impressed and arranges for him to come over to Gauteng .
Two weeks later the Lions are 18-6 down to the Bulls with only 20 minutes left to play. The manager gives the young Iraqi winger the nod and on he goes.
The lad is a sensation, scores 4 tries in 20 minutes and wins the game for the Lions. The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and the media love the new star.
When the player comes off the pitch he phones his mum to tell her about his first day in Super 14 Rugby .
“Hello mum, guess what?” he says “I played for 20 minutes today, and we were 18-6 down but I scored 4 tries and we won! Everybody loves me, the fans, the media, they all love me!”
“Wonderful,” says his mum, “Let me tell you about my day. Your father was shot in the leg and hijacked; your sister and I were ambushed, beaten and robbed; your brother has joined a gang of looters and all while you were having such a great time playing rugby”
The young lad is very upset. “What can I say mum, but I am so sorry.”
“Sorry?!!! Sorry?!!!’ shrieks his mum, “It’s your bloody fault we moved to Jo’Burg in the first place.”
Hope you have fabulous Sunday!
