10954600 Africa thinks Mike Tyson has had a sex change (extreme female rape empathy)FOREIGN press outlets are getting confused with Western satire. The Onion’s obvious spoof piece which said that Kim Jong Un had been voted sexiest man of 2012 was reported as fact in China.

Manchester United install tanning booth for players

man united tanning 300x225 Manchester United install tanning booth for playersMANCHESTER United aren’t going to help football’s softy, preening image after they installed a tanning booth at their training ground.

Novak Djokovic buys all the donkey cheese in the world

donkey cheese tennis Novak Djokovic buys all the donkey cheese in the world

WINNING Wimbledon is one thing, but for Novak Djokovic, it isn’t nearly as good as donkey cheese. That’s right. You can buy donkey cheese. Or at least, you could before Novak bought all the donkey cheese in the world. ALL OF IT.

Donkey cheese was unveiled earlier in the year, in a burger that costs £3,000 from a restaurant in Vegas and is one of the most expensive foods on the planet. And now, the Wimbledon champ has it all for himself.

Darts: Jesus thrown out of Cash Converters Players’ Championship at Butlins at Minehead, Somerset

darts jesus Darts: Jesus thrown out of Cash Converters Players Championship at Butlins at Minehead, Somerset“IT was all very weird and distressing. I didn’t break down crying but I did get emotionally distraught. They were bullying me and picking on me, saying that I was someone else. It would have been okay if the security hadn’t made a fuss getting me out of the arena. I was evicted for something I have no control over. I felt discriminated against. After the tournament ended, I must admit a lot of people went to get autographs and signed photos from me.

 ”I signed a few pieces of paper – but in my real name, not Jesus.”

BEFORE the Manchester City v Manchester United Premier League match kicked off, American broadcaster ESPN attempted to explain to American viewers what it means to support the clubs. Overlooking the obvious error – City’s biggest fans are based in the Middle East; United’s fans mostly live in London – we see that “Muppet” has been transcribe as “Moppet”. Muppet means a brainless, cloth-eared toy with a hand working your arse; Moppet means a cutesy young child.

Chelsea: Rafa Benitez delighted to edge closer to pay-off and sack

HAPPY days in the Rafa Benitez household. Agent Benitez *, the new Chelsea boss, has steered the club to defeat at West Ham United. More of this and that severance package will be his.

Says one Rafa insider: “He was hoping the hate at Chelsea would force him out. But with these kind of results he won’t even need to wear black shoe polish on his face and sing a song about John Terry’s mum to be abused. He’ll be out by Christmas*.”

* Unless Chelsea play Arsenal, in which case they can’t fail to win and Rafa’s plan is shafted.

** ”Benitez” is the Spanish word for “instant dismissal.”

Fill your boots with footy stuff on Pies.
