image for Food Based Puns Increase after Canaries get 6 goal Stuffing from Man City
Paul Lambert is a sick as one of these

Norwich 1-6 Man City

Norfolk. Home of turkey farms, incest and Norwich City Football Club.

It is a widely reported statistical fact that the number of food based puns increases whenever Norwich, also known as the Canaries, are on the receiving end of a spectacular reverse. It is an opportunity for every third rate hack and TV pundit to trot out some tired cliche involving Turkeys, stuffing and Delia Smith. This weekend the Canaries, were the recipients of a 6-1 drubbing by Premiership Oilygarchs Manchester City, so in tribute, we have selected some of our favourite Norwich related puns:

"It looks like the Norwich back four are as yellow as a streak of Colman's Mustard used on Delia's Roast Turkey." Geoff Watlins Sky Sports

"That's right Geoff, both literally and metaphorically I'd say! Although traditionally, you wouldn't serve mustard with turkey, a fruit based condiment like cranberry jelly would be more fitting." Tom Scallion Sky Sports

"The vultures are circling over Carrow Road now...The Canaries have been royally stuffed, just like last year's Christmas turkey, and Paul Lambert looks as sick as a parrot." Brian Overend SportNow.com

"Norwich may play in yellow and green but now they are singing the blues. The Sky Blues of Manchester City." Terry Winkler - The Times

"The Man City fans are singing, 'Don't Cry for me Carrot Cruncher' - I've no idea why?" Tom Lennon ManCityMad FM

"Some sage, some thyme and a dash of South American spice. These Norfolk turkeys have been served up on a platter for Mancini and his boys!" Alex Planter Binners.co.uk
