Who Would Be A Referee?

Recommended Posts

I know we often think of our referee's as harsh and sometimes we say nasty things about them but what about this in Brazil

To summarise my feelings......I read this and said "my goodness".

To be honest I struggle to find anything but disgust at these events ....Not my kind of humour.

I fail to see what one could possibly think was supposed to be humour in that story.

In fact you have me at an absolute disadvantage as I simply fail to understand as to why serious news stories are now considered humour. In my day comedians such as Hector Nichol stood up in front of a crowd and told jokes. In later life I also came to appreciate one Dave Allen. However if modern cutting edge humour has changed somewhat then I confess to being blissfully ignorant, blissfully ignorant indeed.

Only two things are cheap in Brazil:

1 - human life, and

2 - granite kitchen countertops.

So unless you are seriously into home improvement, I can't recommend Brazil as a tourist destination, not even for the World Cup, nor the Olympics.

Rio de Janeiro is like the Wild West, with added crack cocaine and AK47s.

The state where this referee was beheaded, Maranhao, is in the dirt-poor north of the country, and is run by politician Jose Sarney as his own private kingdom. A total scumbag, he makes Westminster MPs look like saints.

Rant over!
