THE FERRARI FORMULA 1 TEAM


The Ferrari Formula 1 Team sacked its entire pit crew yesterday.
The announcement followed Ferrari's decision to take advantage
of the UK Government's Youth Opportunity Scheme and employ
people from Liverpool.


The decision to hire them was brought on by a recent
documentary on how unemployed youths from Liverpool area were able to
remove a set of wheels in less than six seconds without proper
equipment, whereas Ferrari's existing crew can only do it in eight
seconds with millions of euros worth of high tech equipment. Prime
Minister Tony Blair went on record as saying this was a bold move by
the Ferrari management, which demonstrated the international
recognition of the UK under New Labour. As most races are
won and lost in the pits, Ferrari now have the advantage over
every team.

However, Ferrari may have got more than they bargained for.
At the crew's first practice session the Liverpool pit crew
successfully changed the tyres in under six seconds, but
within 12 seconds they had re-sprayed, re-badged, and sold the
vehicle to the McLaren Team for eight bottles of Stella, a kilo of
speed and some photos of Coulthard's bird in the shower.

Hi Steve

Very good.

Seriously ,is it your own original or recycled ?

I fancy myself as a bit of a spoof news writer too. (although most of mine wont mean anything unless you know the characters involved ,and you wont want to know these sad characters I assure you.)

If you got any more originals let's have them.

Hi Alan,

It was one that was sent to me yesterday. I thought it quite funny so I thought I'd share it. If anymore come through I shall post them on the board.

Hi Graham,

Although it appears on the face of it to be the exact same, I think you'll find that they were totally different Scousers on my posting. Embarassed
