An Eagle supporter, a Collingwood supporter and a Dockers supporter
were arrested in a small Arabian state when they were caught piddling 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 reduce the number of lashes or the type of punishment. The Eagle supporter says “Well we are on top of the ladder so I go first. I want the pleasure of a beer and a pillow.” The Sultan grants his wishes. With a wide grin the Eagle supporter 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 Collingwood supporter 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 Collingwood supporter has to painfully endure the remaining 5 lashes which leave deep welt marks on his back.
The Dockers supporter is grinning from ear to ear and mutters something under his breath about a bulldust penalty. “Ok my first wish is to double the number of lashes to 40.”There is stunned silence in the hall. The Eagle, Collingwood supporter and Sultan are a little surprised at the first wish but then remember the strong fighting performance the Dockers have been putting up during the 2006 season.
The Eagle and Collingwood supporter look at each other and nod in admiration – obviously this Docker supporter wants to show how tough he is. The Sultan asks the Docker supporter for his second wish.
“Tie the Eagle supporter to my back” he replies.
