Speeding Muppet!!

Ah, the tricksters are out this Halloween...Police in Germany are chasing a prankster today, after a driver of an English reg car tried to evade them by putting a giant muppet in the left hand side of the car (i.e their "drivers side"). The Police over there can't prosecute the driver on plates alone, they also need a photo so this person cleverly let's the muppet take the blame....Police have said the character appears to be Animal from the Muppet Show, but are also looking at Grover and Ernie as possible "accomplices"!

You ask yourself who are the real muppets here?!! :)

Ode to Spurs...

This was sent in by Alan Douglas...cheers Alan, it's a gem...

To the tune of American Pie...

A long,Long time ago,
I can still remember,
How the Carling Cup win made them smile,
And they knew this could be their chance,
To finally make that big advance,
And maybe, break the top 4 for a while.

But transfer windows made them shiver,
As Robbie Keane went off to Liver.....
Pool, and Berbs to Man U,
You can't believe it can you?
Tears of laughter we all cried,
As on Brent they have to rely,
And Frasier Campbell really tried,
The Day That Tottenham Died !

So my my kiss UEFA goodbye,
When Comoli sold the Goalie,
Well it made Levy Cry,
When you play for Spurs you kiss Capello goodbye,
Soon your gonna be a Magpie,
I bet you wish you were a Magpie.

Did your players eat the poisoned food,
To let Arsenal in and Spoil your mood,
If the fansite tells you so,
Do you believe in Chas n Dave,
Can their music save you from an early grave,
And can Dawson teach me how to run real slow,

Well, I knew you were set for a let down,
When the Spaniard signed the Blackburn clown,
You sacked poor Martin Jol,
And now everyone just laughs out loud,
I have long been laughing at your lack of luck,
Your delusion means I couldn't give a .....,
That to the table bottom you are stuck,
The day the Tottenham died,
I started singing........

So my my kiss UEFA goodbye,
When Comoli sold the goalie,
Well it made Levy cry,
When you play for Spurs you kiss Capello goodbye,
Soon your gonna be a Magpie,
I bet you wish you were a Magpie.

Fernando Torres / Nick decide!

Fernando Torres may be out with an injury but he's still working! This is his latest commercial for a Spanish Clothing line. But is it just me or does he look remarkably like Nick carter from the Backstreet Boys in this ad?!!

What went wrong with Spurs....

So it seems Spurs problems started in July, rather than the last 8 games of the season! Notice anything about this picture? All the players are completely HAIRLESS! Perhaps if they spent less time waxing and more time scoring (on the pitch!) they wouldn't be sitting on the bottom of the table!

Sorry Jim! :(

guy shoots water out his eyes!!

Wandering across cyber space this morning I found the strangest story....
A Chinese man, Ru Anting, can write calligraphy with water he shoots from his eyes!
He sucks up the water with his nose and then sprays it through his tear ducts. Ru discovred his unusual skill while swimming in the river as a child. As well as being able to write, he discovered he can shoot water accurately up to 10ft from his eyes at will!!

The picture here is an exmaple of his work...what he has written here is
"Fu Ru Dong Hai"("Fortune as vast as the sea")

How the Bee Gee's can save your life!!

A study carried out by American doctors this week has found that the Bee Gees 1977 disco anthem "Stayin' Alive" provides an ideal beat to follow while performing chest compressions as part of CPR on a heart attack victim.

The American Heart Association calls for chest compressions to be given at a rate of 100 per minute in CPR.... "Stayin' Alive" almost perfectly matches that, with 103 beats per minute.

Many people are afraid to do CPR beacuse they don't know how quickly to do it & there is always the fear that you will do more harm than good....but the study was done for 5 weeks and afterwards it was found to work.

The findings will be presented this month at a meeting of the American College of Emergency Physicians in Chicago.

So next time you're at a match and God forbid someone collapses, ask the guy to put stayin alive on the PA and off you go!

Johnny's woes! :-(

Rugby fans will be disappointed to hear it looks as if Johnny is gone for the 6 Nations and next year's Lions Tour after it was confirmed he'll be out for 5 months with his dislocated knee. He's had 14 separate injuries since 2003 and you just have to wonder how much more he can put up with before he calls a halt to his's very sad really for such a talented player.

Catfish weighs as much as a hooker (16 stone!)

Spurs finally win a game..... sorry Jim!
