The Footballer

This made me laugh, but I didn't think I could post it in general forums in case of causing offense - not everyone knows where Liverpool is! It is in NO WAY racist, rather more just a case of tonque in cheek English humour

The Iraqi Footballer

The Liverpool Manager flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi play football and is suitably impressed and arranges for him to come over to Anfield.

Two weeks later Liverpool are 4 - 0 down to Man Utd with only 20 minutes left. The Manager gives the young Iraqi striker the nod, and on he goes.

The lad is a sensation. He scores 5 goals in 20 minutes and wins the game for Liverpool. The fans are delighted. The players and the 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 English football.

"Hello mum, guess what?" he says in Iraqi. "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. "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 while you were having such a great time!".

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

"Sorry? Sorry!!?" says his mum, "It's all your bloody fault we moved to Liverpool in the first place!"
