Sporting quote and headline ‘cock-up’. July 8, 2010

Innuendo abounds in this quickie…

By now, everyone must’ve heard the quote by  Brian Johnston – referring to Michael Holding and Peter Willey in the 1976 Oval Cricket Test match between England and the West Indies –

The bowler’s Holding, the batsman’s Willey.

Well, another gigglesome line has appeared in the last week, this time a headline –

Tired Gay succumbs to Dix in 200 meters.

That really made me laugh this morning. I can just imagine the reporter sitting down at his computer to write the article and wetting himself at being able to write that headline. Brilliant!
