The row about whether an Irishman can like cricket escalated. The Pope entered the argument. "The midwife should have slapped his arse. What's an Irish guy doing liking cricket. It looks so much better on tv than real life."
Spoof.com cricket correspondent Earl Grey responded. "How's that? Sure we have played cricket in Ireland for many years. My own father enjoyed the game.
All this as the Irish cricket team are playing in the final stages of the qualifying tournament for the next Cricket World Cup. The Irish are favourites to qualify and are currently unbeaten."
The word count on this story has been limited to 111. Very unlucky in cricket.
