Englands World Cup Gags

   The England team went to visit an orphanage in South Africa this morning, "its so good to put a smile on the faces of people with no hope, constantly struggling, and facing the impossible" said Jamal Omboto, aged 6.

·         Fabio Capello was wheeling his shopping trolley across the supermarket car park when he noticed an old lady struggling with her bags of shopping. He stopped and asked, "Can you manage dear?" To which the old lady replied, "No way. You got yourself into this f*****g mess, don't ask me to sort it out..."

·         What's the difference between the England team and a tea bag? The tea bag stays in the cup longer.

·         I'm shocked at Wayne Rooney's outburst after the Algeria game. Who knew he could even string a sentence together!

·         What do you call an Englishman in the knockout stages of the World Cup? A referee.

·         Three hours of football and Robert Green is still England's top scorer.

·         What's the difference between a faulty jet engine and Wayne Rooney? The jet engine eventually stops whining.

·         What's the difference between Wayne Rooney and Shrek? Shrek can save the day.

·         Osama bin Laden has just released a new TV message to prove he is still alive. He said that the England Team performance on Saturday was completely s**t. British intelligence have dismissed the claim, stating that the message could have been recorded anytime in the last 44 years.

·         Robert Green - The only man to leave Africa without catching anything .

·         In a statement from broadcasting house, all future England games will now be shown on the gay porn channel. It is thought that 11 arseholes being regularly shafted is too explicit for regular TV.

·         I can't believe we only managed a draw against a s**t team we should easily have beaten......I'm ashamed to call myself Algerian.

·         Fifa have released a statement saying the fan didn't break into the dressing room after all, but was let in by Rob Green.

·         What's the difference between Rob Green's spill and BP's spill?
- Robert Green has got a cap for his.

·         The FA have launched an inquiry to find out how a fan found his way into the dressing room. And another enquiry into how Aaron Lennon found his way into the dressing room.

To Dam Old

  We used to go to weddings,
                                football games and lunches.
                                Now we go to funeral homes,
                                and after-funeral brunches.
                                We used to have hangovers,
                                from parties that were gay.
                                Now we suffer body aches
                                and wile the night away.
                                We used to go out dining,
                                and couldn't get our fill.
                                Now we ask for doggie bags,
                                come home and take a pill.
                                We used to often travel
                                to places near and far.
                                Now we get sore asses
                                from riding in the car.
                                We used to go to nightclubs
                              and drink a little booze.
                                Now we stay home at night
                               and watch the evening news.

                                That, my friend is how life is,
                                and now my tale is told.
                                So, enjoy each day and live it up...
                                  before you're too damned old!
