penalized for farting during soccer game

In the news, a football (soccer) player in Europe was penalized for farting during a game.  The official considered it “ungentlemanly conduct”.  What in the world?!?  That kind of thing is gonna happen sometimes, especially when you’re out on a field for hours and running around.  Besides, it’s a natural bodily function.

The incident happened at a bad time for the player’s team, because they are currently without a sponsor.  Perhaps Beano should sponsor them.  🙂

caption contest, soccer player surrounded by opposition

It’s late on Monday night, but I didn’t forget about the caption contest.  Don’t lose heart!  This week, we have an interesting picture of a soccer / football player standing in the midst of his opponents, who are on the ground for some unknown reason.  I’m confident that some of you will figure out what might be going on here.

So how does this work?  You (and I’m talking to you) write a comment with a funny explanation or humorous analysis of the situation.  It’s that simple.  Here’s the photo:

soccer player, other team passed out

give thanks for food

Well, we’re nearing the annual Turkey Day (or Thanksgiving, as most call it).   It is, of course, a day to give thanks (which I covered on my other blog), but here at Buffet o’ Blog we tend to take a lighter look at life.  So here’s some of the things I’m thankful for (and will be extra thankful for on Thursday):

pecan-pieturkey and dressing
ham
macaroni & cheese
hashbrown casserole
mashed taters
gravy
sweet tea
cookies
pecan pie
chocolate pie

I could probably think of a few more things from a typical Thanksgiving feast, but you get the idea.  I am VERY thankful for the great food that we get to eat.  It’s easy to take it for granted, because for most of us it happens every year, but not everyone gets to enjoy such a great feast.  So I really am thankful for the wonderful food I’ll be eating a lot of.

Whoops, I was getting kinda serious there.  It’s good stuff, what I said, but I don’t want to let it take over this blog.   So here’s a Thanksgiving joke for you:

After Thanksgiving dinner, some guys go out in the yard and pass it.

Do you know the answer?   The “correct answer” is football, but there are other possibly correct answers.  🙂  That’s all I’ll say about that!

Now, in closing, I hope you all have plenty of food to eat, and a comfortable place to rest afterwards.  🙂

crappy glitch in Madden football

The Madden series of football video games has been extremely popular, but like almost all video games, there are bugs / glitches just waiting to be found.   (It’s extremely difficult to be a video game programmer.)  The bug featured in this video is more of a graphical glitch, in that the “boundary” between the football and the player just didn’t line up correctly.  But if you consider the glitch in-game, it’s one of the most painful glitches ever.

To warn you, this video is gross (in concept, because it’s not reality, y’know).  What happens is that Rex Grossman craps a football.   If you can’t handle such humor, then obviously you shouldn’t watch the video.  You have been forewarned.

We’ve also written about another one, which is much more awesome — the infamous ambulance in Madden ’92, which runs over players.  🙂
