The last time we heard such ingredients for comedy gold it involved a chicken, a thoroughfare and questions regarding his motivations for getting to the opposite side.
Sepp Blatter, an envelope and the stench of corruption hanging in the air.
At least I think that’s corruption – I must admit, I hadn’t noticed the blob of poo lookalikely on the envelope when I selected the image, but it didn’t take long before some of our entrants pointed it out.
We had a lot of very amusing suggested captions and a lot of weird ones that made us a little wary about the mental state of some of our blog audience. It was to separate all the high quality entries, so after much consultation – and only a brief break for a muffin – we decided it was hard to pick just one so we took all the favourites of our comedy judging panel and stuck them into a hat. We then spent five minutes looking at the hat waiting for something to happen only to remember someone needed to draw a name and that name was Kev who came up with the following:
You just stick your unwanted gold in the envelope and send to Freepost: Cash For Gold. Then they send you a cheque or as you English call it ‘A bribe’.
The success of our Cash For Retweets programme worked a charm and what was once a €/£50 Free Bet has been genetically enhanced to a €/£70 Free Bet and that’s now winging it’s way towards Kev’s account. Congratulations Kev, but we may need that money back if/when Sepp’s legal team come calling.
Come back later today for this week’s blog competition.
