Iraqi Shoe Chucker ‘Munty’ Muntadar To Play For England

by | 16th, December 2008

GOOD news that Iraqi journalist and champion shoe tosser Muntadar al-Zeidi has unearthed a British granny and can play cricket for England.

But first he must be released from where he is having the souls of his feet mercilessly tickled.

The Sun says:

“Thousands of Iraqis took to the streets…to demand the release” of the man many are calling “The New Botham”.

The Suns adds:

“They yelled in Arabic: ‘This is a farewell kiss, you dog…this is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq!”

The Sun omits to mention that the supporters of al-Zaidi are the followers of anti-American Iranian-backed extremist Muqtada Al-Sadr. But still, they might quite a noise, although their chanting needs work.

Happily, England’s Barmy Army are more fluent in ritualistic abuse and rhyming couplets.

And as soon as al-Zeidi is given a pair of whites and taught to keep his arm a little straighter and aim at the body, he’ll be skittling out the heathen Austrians this summer.

Praise be to Muntadhgar al-Zeidi
We are the army, the Barmy Army
Oh we are bonkers, and we are mad
We are the loyalest, al-Zeidi fans
That the world has ever had

Ah-la-la-la-la – repeat for 96 overs…
