Some AFL comedy.


This cartoon by Kudelka relates to a bit of an embarrassment where naked images of a couple of star players were sent by Mobile phone by a young chick. There still doesn’t seem to be any resolution to it, although some reports suggest that unknown persons took them in the change room.

Anyway it reminded me of a joke about Eddie Maguire and Collingwood AFL Club that was doing the rounds a while ago:

80,000 Collingwood Fans meet at the MCG for a "Collingwood Fans Are Not Stupid" Convention.


Eddie Maguire, the club president says, "We are all here today to prove to the world that Collingwood fans are not stupid. Can I have a volunteer?"
Allan Didak, a player gingerly works his way through the crowd and steps up to the stage. Eddie asks him, "What is fifteen plus fifteen?"

After 15 or 20 seconds Didak says, "Eighteen!"



Obviously everyone is a little disappointed. Then all 80,000 Collingwood Fans start chanting, "GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE!"

Eddie says, "Well since we've gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you in one place and we have the world wide press and global broadcast media here, I think we can give him another chance."

So he asks, "What is seven plus seven?"

After nearly 30 seconds he eventually says, "Ninety!"

Eddie is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets out a dejected sigh - everyone is disheartened. Didak starts crying and the 80,000 Collingwood fans begin to yell and wave their hands shouting, "GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE!"

Eddie, unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than good, eventually says, "OK! OK! Just one more chance ... What is two plus two?"

Didak closes his eyes, and after a whole minute eventually says, "Four!"

Eddie just starts a sigh of relief when throughout the stadium pandemonium breaks out as all 80,000 Collingwood fans jump to their feet, wave their arms, stamp their feet and scream...

"GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE!"
