Ceci n'est pas une personne.

More wrongness from my father...

Randy bears

George was excited about his new rifle, and decided to try bear
hunting. He spotted a small brown bear and shot it.

There was then a tap on his shoulder, and he turned round to see a big
black bear. The black bear said, "That was my cousin, and you've got two choices. Either I maul you to death or we have sex." After considering briefly, George decided to accede to the latter alternative.

Even though he felt sore for two weeks, George soon recovered and vowed revenge. He headed out on another trip where he found the black bear and shot it.

There was another tap on his shoulder. This time a huge grizzly bear stood right next to him. The grizzly said, "That was a huge mistake, George. That was my cousin, and you've got two choices. Either I maul you to
death or we have rough sex."

Again, George thought it was better to cooperate. Although he survived, it would take several months before George finally recovered.

Outraged he headed back to the woods, managed to track down the grizzly and shot it. He felt sweet revenge, but then there was a tap on his shoulder. He turned round to find a giant polar bear standing there.

The polar bear said, "Admit it, George, you don't come here for the hunting, do you?"

Love of the game

As many of you who have ever coached a youth team or who have young children at home waiting to be molded, it's a very gratifying job when you sit back and think of not only the technical skills we can pass on, but perhaps more important, the sportsmanship and strong moral base that we can provide our kids. The attached picture says it all, a young man who has obviously been given a deep love of the beautiful game, a love that should last a lifetime...
