Another Olympic joke


The final of the Hammer Throw. It's all come down to a Russian military officer, an American farmer and an unemployed Scouser.

The Russian throws first: 85 metres, just short of the world record.

Interviewed after the event he said, "My grandfather was in the military, my father was in the military and I am in the military. This gives me strength and discipline."

Then the American throws: 88 metres, breaking the world record.

Interviewed after the event he said, "My grandfather was a farmer, my father was a farmer and I am a farmer. This gives me strength and discipline."

The Scouser saunters up to the nets, gobs at the TV cameras and slings the hammer 95 metres, breaking the world record and winning gold for Great Britain.

Interviewed after the event he said, "My grandfather was unemployed, my father was unemployed and both said to me, 'If anyone ever puts a hammer in your hand, throw it as far as you f***ing can'."
