Eddie McGuire flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi play Aussie rules and is suitably impressed and arranges for him to come over to Collingwood.
He's signed to a one-year contract and the kid joins the team for the pre-season.

Two weeks later the magpies are down by 6 goals to Carlton with only 10 minutes left.

The coach gives the young Iraqi the nod and he goes in. The kid is a
sensation - kicks 7 goals in 10 minutes and wins the game for the magpies!

The fans are thrilled, the players and coaches are delighted, and the media are in love with the new star

When the player comes off the ground he phones his mum to tell her about his first day of AFL.

'Hello mum, guess what?' he says, 'I played for 10 minutes today, we were 6 goals down, but I kicked 7 goals and we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the media...'

Wonderful,' says his mum, 'Let me tell you about my day. Your father got shot in the street and robbed, your sister and I were ambushed and beaten, and your brother has joined a gang of looters, and all while you were having such great time.'

The young Iraqi is very upset. 'What can I say mum, I'm so sorry.'

'Sorry? You're sorry?' says his mum, 'It's your bloody fault we moved to Collingwood in the first place!'

True story
I sold newspapers in Collingwood as a kid, 2 other kids once attempted to rob me for my paper money not far from CUB.
However that was 40 years ago and I'm sure Collingwood is a much nicer place now.

But he knows all about how it is done apparently.
He listens to a local HBS bloke who is real switched on with this sort of thing. :roll:
Can make a litre out of this and that after 6hrs of distilling. ... "It's as clear as a bell, even before filtering!" 8-} 8-}

Wouldn't believe me, that you could make decent spirits out of mash, sugar, yeast and water.

I even offered to give him my old 2.5" pot still and show him how it works....... still waiting for his reply. 8-} 8-}

I'd gut somebody for one of your stills, hes a nitwit.
