Re: The General Footy Thread
Found it.... great gag in fairness. lol. Not sure how Roy got to thinking any of the England squad would have a scooby what he was on about though.
The supposed joke is one that was popular at American space agency Nasa.
“Nasa decided they’d finally send a man up in a capsule after sending only monkeys in the earlier missions,” the joke goes.
“They fire the man and the monkey into space. The intercom crackles, 'Monkey, fire the retros’. A little later, 'Monkey, check the solid fuel supply’.
“Later still, 'Monkey, check the life support systems for the man’. The astronaut takes umbrage and radios Nasa, 'When do I get to do something?’
“Nasa replies, 'In 15 minutes – feed the monkey’.”
