‘Well you see, Norm, it’s like this . .. . A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells.. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers..’
The lanky-legged striker, whose fiancee is lads’ mag pin-up and lingerie model Abi Clancy (pictured above), topped a survey to find the best one liners and comedy football moments of all time.
The 6ft 7in beanpole responded to the question, “What would you be if you weren’t a footballer?” by saying: “A virgin”, winning him nearly a quarter of the votes in the poll.
His famous “robot dance” goal celebration – which he has promised to repeat if England win the World Cup in South Africa – also added to his appeal.
Manchester United legend George Best features at number two in the vote for his comment: “I spent a lot of my money on booze, birds and fast cars – the rest I just squandered.”

Every day, Seamus O’Malley goes down to the pub and orders three pints.
After a number of weeks, Mickey Flynn, the proprietor asks why the three pints.
Seamus explains that his brothers Patrick and Donald have moved to Australia and Canada but before they left, they promised each other that they would have a symbolic pint together each day. So each of them, heads to their local pub each day for their three pints for the three brothers.
This goes on for months.
One day, Seamus orders two pints. Mickey is a bit concerned by says nothing. Seamus orders two pints again the next day.
With a long face and a heavy heart, Mickey brings Seamus his two pints and tells Seamus that he is sorry for his loss.
Seamus is surprised by the message and asks Mickey to explain.
“You’re only ordering two pints. I assumed one of your brothers died”, explained Mickey.
“Oh no. Sorry to worry you Mickey”, replies Seamus, “it’s just that the doctor told me to give up drinking”.
“But you’ve still ordered two pints” says Mickey, to which Seamus explains, “My brothers haven’t stopped drinking, only me”
Happy St. Paddy’s Day
A golf story:
Subject: 90 years old
Arthur is 90 years old. He’s played golf every day since his retirement 25
One day he arrives home looking downcast.
“That’s it,” he tells his wife. “I’m giving up golf. My eyesight has gotten
so bad that once I’ve hit the ball, I can’t see where it went.”
His wife sympathizes and makes him a cup of tea. As they sit down, she says,
“Why don’t you take my brother with you and give it one more try.”
“That’s no good,” sighs Arthur. “Your brother’s a hundred and three. He
“He may be a hundred and three,” says the wife, “but his eyesight is
So the next day, Arthur heads off to the golf course with his
brother-in-law. He tees up, takes an almighty swing, and squints down the
He turns to the brother-in-law. “Did you see the ball?”
“Of course I did!” replies the brother-in-law. “I have perfect eyesight.”
They walk down the fairway a little ways, then Arthur asks, “Where did it go?”
“I don’t remember.”
Soon, the desktop computer will be a thing of the PAST.
Things are changing so quickly!!!
The first WiMAX-capable smartphone is said to be slated for introduction next week by Sprint Nextel.
The introductory honors will be borne by Sprint Nextel chief executive Dan Hesse at next week’s CTIA Wirelessshow in Las Vegas, Nevada, perhaps in a presentation during the The Path to 4G all-day session on Tuesday. Hesse is also expected to pump the Supersonic during his keynote presentation on Wednesday.
As The Reg has repeatedly reported, the race to 4G between WiMAX and LTE continues to accelerate. WiMAX may have a head start – Sprint partner Clearwire is busily building out its WiMAX network, with the goal of covering 120 million potential customers by the end of this year – but LTE is rapidly gaining support from such mobile-service heavyweights as AT&T, Verizon, Orange, Sony Ericsson, Nokia, and others.
Sprint is betting heavily on Clearwire. Witness not only its $7.4bn stake in a $14.5bn Clearwire joint venture in May of 2008, but also the additional $1.18bn it pumped into the company last November.
It can be argued that the introduction of the HTC Supersonic now – it had originally been rumored to appear later this year – is an effort to entice customers hungry for high-speed mobile broadband to sign long-term contracts before the LTE tsumani swamps the market late this year and into 2011.
If so, the Supersonic appears to be a good phone upon which to bet the farm – at least if leaked deails turn out to be correct. The smartphone is reported to have a 4.3-inch 480×800 display, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor running the HTC Sense UI on top of Android 2.1, and to be equipped with such now-standard smartphone niceties as a touch interface, compass, accelerometer, Bluetooth, five-megapixel camera, and GPS.
We’ll find out more next week – that is, if those “people familiar with the matter” prove to be correct.
