Discover a little-known cricketing fact and have a laugh at the quickest comeback of the year in this week’s Friday Funnies.
Interesting cricketing fact
An interesting but little known fact:
The first testicular guard (box) was used in cricket in1874.
The first cricket safety helmet was used in 1974.
Which means it took 100 years for men to realise that their brains may also be important!
Quickest comeback of the year
If you ever testify in court, you might wish you could be as sharp as this policeman. He was being cross-examined by a defence attorney during a felony trial. The lawyer was trying to undermine the policeman’s credibility.
Q: ‘Officer did you see my client fleeing the scene?’
A: ‘No. But I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender, running several blocks away.’
Q: ‘Officer, who provided this description?’
A: ‘The officer who responded to the scene.’
Q: ‘A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?’
A: ‘Yes. With my life.’
Q: ‘With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?’
A: ‘Yes, we do.’
Q: ‘And do you have a locker in the room?’
A: ‘Yes, I do.’
Q: ‘And do you have a lock on your locker?’
Q: ‘Now, why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with these same officers?’
A: ‘You see, we share the building with the court complex, and sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room.’
The courtroom exploded with laughter, and a prompt recess was called. The officer on the stand has been nominated for this year’s ‘Best Comeback’ line, and we think he’ll win.
