The Aussies are having a rough week...but.......

So, in the matter of one week the Australians have lost Steve Irwin and now Peter Brock (my heart goes out to their families)...and I thought including this joke may make things seem a bit better for them.....

An Italian, a German and an Australian football fan were arrested in a small Arabian state when they were caught pissing on a religious building after an all night drinking binge.

The trio have to face up to the local sultan and are dished out the typical punishment for religious desecration - 20 lashes of the whip to the back. But the Sultan was a big football fan so he kindly granted them two wishes each - but they were not allowed to change the number of lashes or the type of punishment.

The Italian says " Well we are the World Champions so I go first. I want the pleasure of a beer and a pillow.". The Sultan grants his wishes.

With a wide grin the Italian drinks his beer and binds the pillow to his naked back. But after 10 lashes the pillow falls apart and he has to painfully endure the remaining 10 lashes which leave deep welt marks on his back.

The German saw all this and spends a few minutes thinking before smiling. "I would like to have two pillows for my back". The Sultan thinks about the uniqueness of the wishes but decides to grant it given he has used up his two wishes in one go. However after 15 lashes of the whip both pillows have fallen apart and the German has to painfully endure the remaining 5 lashes which leave deep welt marks on his back.

The Australian is grinning from ear to ear and mutters something under his breath about a bullshit penalty. "Ok my first wish is to double the number of lashes to 40." There is stunned silence in the hall.

The Italian, German and Sultan are a little surprised at the first wish but then remember the strong fighting performance the Aussies put up during the World Cup in Germany 2006. The Italian and German look at each other and nod in admiration - obviously this Aussie wants to show how tough he is.

The Sultan ask the Aussie for his second wish.
"Tie the Italian to my back" he replies.

Us Aussies are in mourning true, but we wonder as these things happen in threes', which Australian icon will make it a trifecta.
Thanks for your kind words.

    Quoting citizen4722:

    Crikey, Steve Irwin was Ace, but I don't know who Peter Brock was famous for? (scuse my ignorance).
Steve Brock was like the Dale Earnhardt of Australia.

Now I'm just waiting to see if Austin Stevens gets swallowed by a 20' boa, and Jeff Corwin gets bit to death by rattlesnakes.
