James Marshall gets asked a stupid question

Name that Marshall“So, are you any relation to Hamish Marshall?”

Writing in his Cricinfo diary, Ross Taylor says someone asked James Marshall that. James and Hamish are identical twins, if you didn’t know.

This was either the most admirably, pig-headedly stupid and obvious joke of all time or it was asked by a complete moron. If it’s the former, the asker should get some sort of medal to acknowledge their services to bloody-minded humour.

  1. Why have you used a picture of Hamish?

    Is that a joke or do you actually know that we have used Hamish? Because you’re right.

    That caption didn’t get its money’s worth.

  3. Heh, if you’re going to be writing super smart and sneaky posts, you need to have your comebacks planned… I’d say that was the equivalent of a top notch heckle… something about your mother. But rather than replying along the lines of “my dead mother?” you replied “you are you mean, nerrr” 🙂

    Seeing his NZ shirt there reminds me of the fact that my 2yr old little boy supported them it seems, largely as they have Hairy Maclary on their shirts as he cleverly observed.

    ‘No, you are’ is the greatest riposte in the debater’s armoury.

    Someone back us up on this.

  5. Wrong!

    It’s I know you are, but what am i?

    Also, Spigot.. My daughter loves Hairy McLary from Donaldsons Dairy. You have to do it in a faux scotchland accent!

  6. No, *you* back yourselves up on that….

    or something.

  7. must remember to stop putting that double dot in..

  8. I assumed they were lovers, or the stunt doubles for the matrix twins.

  9. I knew that. Of course I knew that – you can see it. Above his left eye, there’s a mark. James doesn’t have that. Everyone knows that and if they don’t, they are losers.

    No you are.

    Do i get a prize, like on AYLAC, for naming that Marshall?

  10. “Name that Marshall”

    Is it Malcolm?

  11. My daughter doesn’t like Hairy McClary – she prefers Fall Out Boy and Panic at the Disco (mind you, she is twelve).

  12. My sister in law would probably love to ignore your daughter as much as yours would like to ignore her whilst both just staring at the ground in silent appreciation…

    she has pants taste in music btw… My (genuine yet vague) research tells me Atheist is a Johnny Cash fan, so if he’s anywhere near you, I’m sure he could help out…

    A prize? Do you not remember that we blew the competition budget in April 2007?

  14. You come and see Uncle Suave if its a musical lesson you require!
    We’ll have her listening to the wonders of My Morning Jacket within days.

  15. Kingcricket, you haven’t had a competition for ages. Do you remember when I won that cricket bat signed by the Sussex team, which had been provided by a lingerie website? Happy days.
