Foo picked for West Indies A-team

TDo we pity him?

We were brought up to believe that a foo’ was someone to be pitied and the one place where we wouldn’t expect to find one would be in an A-team.

This actually is political correctness gone mad – employing a foo’ as a key component in an A-team.

7 Appeals

  1. Magnificent

  2. King Cricket

    This is Jonathan Foo of Guyana, by the way.

    Not sure if we should have mentioned that in the post itself.

  3. I pity the foo who has to deal with wicb.

  4. And there was me thinking that the WICB had merely used a metasyntactic variable in the absence of being able to decide who else to put in the squad:

    Forget the foobar bit, these things are foos.

  5. If he gets axed at the last minute for an away tour, will the selectors have to say to him, you ain’t gettin’ on no plane, foo’?

  6. The post has had the unfortunate effect of having me walking around the office singing George Formby songs whilst playing air ukulele.

  7. George Formby played the banjolele, not the ukulele.

    Air-Formby is therefore performed with an air banjolele – I should know – I am a leading exponent of same but only in the privacy of my own home.

    Never in the office. That’s your second mistake in one short posting, Smudge.
