    Something Stupid

    I heard this ages ago and thought you'd all like to hear it.

    In a match between Aus. and Zimbabwe, Glenn McGrath was bowling to Daniel Vettori. After his follow-through, McGrath said to him "Why are you so fat?". After his next delivery, Vettori replied "Well, every time I sleep with your wife she gives me a biscuit!". Adam Gilchrist, who was listening to all this from behind the stumps, was then seen rolling around on his back in a fit of giggles

    That just proves that the Aussies' sledging does backfire (occasionally!)!

    COME ON YOU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Actually I think it came from a tour match in Zimbabwe where a farmer (might have been Eddo Brandes) was given a load of abuse and barging by McGrath. He then smacked three fours in a row and came up with what is the funniest comment I have ever heard of on a cricket pitch. And he definitely didnt say "Sleep" with your wife.

    It might have been vettori though, but he is nearly the thinnest guy in cricket so I doubt it!
    (Plus vettori don't play for Zim!)

    Well, someone else told me, so it could have been something else, but it's near enough.

    The comment was McGrath abusing this farmer about his weight. The farmer responded by smacking a boundary,then he said

    "You know why I am so fat? Because every time I **** your wife, she gives me a biscuit!"

    Yes, and the batsman was one Eddo Brandes, fat farmer and England destroyer. :!(

    So basically Vettori ripped Brandes off?

    yeh Brandes was the unfashionable chicken farmer who famously took a hat-trick against England, but he was the one who originally came up with the jibe.

    I don't think Vettori was involved at all, I think that was an inaccuracy/mistake.

    Well I once said to a bowler "can't you bloody bowl a straight one" after he kept bowling short and wide and then I edged an even wider one and he simply replied "I didn't have to" and I replied with "maybe not, but with all that crap you bowled before I doubt you could have"

    How is that a comeback? He got you out!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
