One definite saving grace for any controversial event either on or off the football pitch are the man made and highly inventive jokes that follow. A couple of years ago I heard a joke that stuck in my mind, which with my head can be difficult to do as I forget jokes easily.

And in the aftermath of the John Terry fiasco another has also given me a constant chuckle whenever I remind myself of the punch line. Yet now I cannot for the love of me decide which joke I prefer, so you guys need to help!


Joke #1: Regarding John Arne Riise's own goal against Chelsea which knocked Liverpool out of the Champions League:

'Reports have come about that John Arne Riise has been stopped by police on the motorway. He has been charged for heading in the wrong direction....'


Joke #2: Regarding John Terry's affair with Wayne Bridge's former girlfriend:

'In an attempt to win back the affection of his former girlfriend Wayne Bridge decided to produce a chocolate bar in the shape of his private parts that he could give to his ex. Although his ex was appreciative of the gift she simply replied 'it's good but I'm sorry I prefer Terry's Chocolate...'
