    1. How does a Led Zeppelin tune predict a sports event outcome? And do it more accurately than a mere human?

    1. Oh, I see now.  When I first read Tim’s post, I thought all those people listed had the same last name, “Essendon”.  I thought what a coincidence.  Must be a common name in Australia.

    1. Does a Blue Heeler root cheer for Carlton?

    1. #4. Only wogs cheer for Carlton; fighters cheer for Collingwood.

    1. The ever-prescient Maid tipped Collingwood by 14 in an online tipping comp.

      However this outcome may well have been aided by the fact that the Maid knows about as much about AFL as the aforesaid dusky canine.

    1. Settle down, Blair. It will soon be June… and you know what that means for the Collywobblers.

    1. My father in his later years worked security at the local paper in Townsville, Qld. A dedicated AFL man all his life and a Victorian to boot, he exasperated the staff at the paper by regularly winning the in-house Rugby League tipping comp. When asked his secret, he’d say that it was actually his guard dog, Gus, that picked the winners and that he just wrote them down…

    1. What’s got 36 legs, is black and white and can’t climb ladders?

    1. Black Dog means depression.  Of course he would go for Collingwood…

    1. Collingwood was $3 in a two-sided contest, which seemed a bit short at the time given the injuries we’d sustained. They were really terrific though it would have been better if they could kick straight.

    1. #10 which AFL/VFL team has the best win/loss ratio in history?
      Even better than those turds from interstate who’ve been around for a nano second.
      Last in 1976 to minor premiers and a drawn granny in 1977. 15th to 5th last year. Yep, clearly ladder-climbing challenged. Idiot.
