Humour – The Naughty Australian Cricketer – A Naughty Joke in Dubious Taste , but Funny.

Smiling can imply a sense of humour and a state of amusement, as in this painting of Falstaff by Eduard von Grützner. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Definitely time for a laugh!

Why would I make fun of our valiant Australian cricketers? Well it proves at least that my sense of humour extends to accepting jokes on us. They are so often on others. Also I find that Australians can be too serious about winning, to the detriment of the best ideals of sportsmanship and spirit of the game.

Other countries are not immune to the same human weaknesses but, MY country should meet MY standards, if they are to receive my unqualified support.

Hope you enjoy this and forgive me for my slide into the risque area. Please do not take this as a defence of rape or as chauvinism.

An Indian lady walked into a Police Station and the desk Sergeant said “Can I help you?”

“Yes” she said, “I’d like to report a case of sexual assault”.

“Where did it happen?” the Sergeant asked.

“In the park just down the road” she replied.

“Can you describe what happened?”

“Yes, I was walking along the footpath in the park near the trees when a man jumped out of the bushes and dragged me in there, removed my underwear then he dropped his pants to his knees and had his way with me”.

“Could you give me a description of him?”

“Yes, he was wearing white shoes, long white trousers, a white shirt and he had these two big long pads from his feet up to and over his knees, one on each leg”.

“Sounds to me like he was a cricketer, most probably a batsman”, said the Sergeant.

“Yes”, said the lady, “He was an Australian Cricketer”.

“That’s very observant”, said the Sergeant, “You worked that out from his accent?”

“No”, she replied. “I worked it out because he wasn’t in for very long”.

      A commercial on TV some time ago made fun of one of our famous cricketers – Talking to his Mum on the phone says” Hold on for a bit Mum, it’s my turn to bat”
      Although Australians are renowned for humour and can take a fair bit of rubbishing themselves, we get into a lot of trouble for racist jokes when it is meant in the nicest way. 🙂

        Maybe it is bigotry, in a racial manner. Racism is what the Nazis practised and did. Bigotry, is a fairly ordinary human trait. Not to be confused with it’s more sinister brother. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been called a limey or pom, I might be richer than I am? It’s not racism, it’s bigotry. Fairly harmless and sometimes amusing.

      • Fair comment Jamie.
        However, IF a comment or attempt at humour (but not ridicule) is race-oriented but meant in a lighthearted manner and sometimes it can even be affectionate, it seems to me to not actually become, or be, bigotry. Bigotry as I see it, is a serious shortcoming in a person and seems to come naturally to many who have been influenced by parents etc and cannot or will not open their own minds and/or hearts.
        I guess it’s also a matter that largely features in the mind of the ‘affected’ person. The intention is the important part of analysing and defining the offensiveness of the words used. A sensitive person or one with ‘hang-ups’ might take offence where none is intended.
        In Australia, probably more so than elsewhere, which is why we easily get ourselves criticised, such terminology was an acceptable part of our language and heritage.
        “you old bastard”, ‘whinging pom”, “bloody wog”, are terms that can be meant without any malice whatever, but risky enough to now be a criminal offence in our over-reacting politically correct society.
        ‘Sledging’ on the sports arena, to me, is offensive because it is intended to upset the opponent’s concentration and to create tension. This is NOT acting in a sporting spirit and should not happen, or be acceptable, of course IMHO.

        What concerns me is that we now live in a world where no allowances are made for the intentions or mood of “offenders” and that is where we pass from a sane, commonsense world to one where ‘literal’ is the criteria and ‘big brother’ the ruler.
