One Joke Is As Good As Two Jokes “A LESSON WE HAVE YET TO LEARN.” by Snowden
Arsenal Football Club is a Premier League soccer club in North London. It is owned by, Kroenke Sports & Entertainment (KSE). The club is on tour and will play Florentine of Italy at the Bank of America Stadium Charlotte NC on Saturday 20th. On Tuesday 23rd they will play Real Madrid at the FedEx field MD.
Their present manager is Unai Emery who was born in a small Spanish town close to the French border of South West France. In both countries the Basque Language is spoken. This coming season sees the start of Unai Emery’s second season at the club. His predecessor was Arsène Wenger.
Arsène Wenger was manager for the previous 22 years. During this time the club were champions three times and FA Cup winners 7 times. Hidden in those numbers is this: They twice won the League and Cup in the same season. The other winning title they won without losing a game. They played 38 games. The team is known as the ‘Invincibles’.
He brought to the club a style of entertaining football that Arsenal became famous for in the world of soccer. He is the man behind their new 60 000 all seater stadium.
As if that wasn’t enough, he revolutionised football training and match preparation in England. Where he led, the rest somewhat begrudgingly followed. He is of course famed for many quotes and observations of life, one of them is this:
He fielded a team in which there wasn’t one British player in it. The English media went paranoid over this.
He remained calm and said: ‘When I chose the players for the game, I look for the players that play the best football. I don’t look at their passports.’
Written by me as an American and published in my Face Book page. (I am not an American, but I have Americans on my page who are convinced I am an American. So, I go with the flow. I told them a joke about how an English woman had the last word on two American men. They loved it; did they love it. They lost sight of the fact that it was the English that silenced the Americans. The English won the day.
Here is the joke.
This is how I titled the joke:
Women are always right and know best.
Two rich Americans were checking into a hotel in London England. The receptionist said ‘Sir, I will get the porter to take your luggage up in the lift.’
Rich American said: ‘Excuse me ma’am but I think you mean elevator.’
Receptionist in a quiet but determined voice said: ‘Sir this is England we call them ‘lifts’.
Rich American, a little angered by her reply said: ‘I will have you know mam that we invented them and they are called elevators.
Without moving so much as an eye lash, and in a quiet but positive voice the Receptionist replied: ‘Sir we English invented the language’.
The American women said that it proved they knew better than me (a fellow American in their thinking… Happy moments can be had on FaceBook!
Hence the Snowden expression: ‘A LESSON WE HAVE YET TO LEARN.
