The Laughing Buck; Who to blame

Football Blame 

Three fans were talking about the sad state of their local club. 

The first fan said, “I blame the manager; if we could sign better players, we’d be a great club.” 

The second fan said, “I blame the players; if they made more effort, I’m sure we would score more goals.” 

The third fan said, “I blame my parents; if I had been born in a different town, I’d be supporting a decent team.” 

Q. What did the football coach say to the broken vending machine? 

A. “Give me my quarterback!” 


There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer. 

When asked to define “great” he replied, “I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!” 

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.
