Liverpool's Anfield stadium is a funny old place; rocking on a big European night—remember those?—loud against the fiercest of opposition and always ready with a joke or two.
Those in attendance when Gary Sprake's unfortunate incident occurred in '67 will not quickly forget the spontaneous outburst of "Careless Hands" from the Kop.
There have been other such humorous interjections from the Anfield crowd on occasions; some repeated, some one-offs.
Here are five funny chants or songs you're bound to hear inside the ground this season.

More funny-ironic than funny-ha-ha this first one, as the song will be heartfelt but directed at an opponent—but a former Liverpool great will be in attendance on 12th August as Sami Hyypia, now manager of Bayer Leverkusen, brings his side to Anfield for a friendly.
The Finnish defender will get a magnificent reception from the crowd, having spent a decade at the club winning the Champions League and plenty of other trophies besides in his 464 games.
The match will be Liverpool's final warm-up before the Premier League season kicks off.
We Won It Five Times
No doubt there will be a few visitors to Anfield who are happy to remind the club that they finished a lowly eighth in the Premier League last season.
Chelsea, now Champions of Europe, will be one of them.
Liverpool fans will respond in kind, reminding the Londoners that they have a long, long way to go to even dream of matching the Reds' achievements.
John Terry... Please, Please, Please, Please

After the treatment dished out to Luis Suarez last term from some opposition supporters, John Terry should be expecting some of the same to fly his way.
Make up the jokes, songs or chants yourself, but you can be sure that somewhere along the way there will be one in reference to the hilarious mix-up in the courtroom this summer as John Terry misunderstood the wishes of his QC.
Please, please, please, please make this chant a good one.
I Just Can't Get Enough
Nothing hilarious, but the Suarez song sung by Kopites is pretty funny nonetheless.
To the tune of—of all things—Depeche Mode's "I just can't get enough", Liverpool fans will time and time again sing and sway and support the Uruguayan forward.
The tune is catchy, the wording clever and the song in general has its effect—giving both player and crowd a boost.
Last but Not Least...

Depending on your point of view, this is fantastically funny or horribly offensive.
Borne of a relationship between his mother and a man from Liverpool, John Terry is serenaded by Kopites again, one which will definitely get an airing this season after further revelations from his court case this summer.
If you know the song already, there's no need for further descriptions. If not... well, it's out there if you want to find it.
Or you could head to Anfield for a first hand account. Liverpool face Chelsea away in November, and at home in April.
