I often see jokes and stories copied care of e-mail systems and other blog-sites, but I thought I’d share this particular treasure which comes courtesy of my daughter Alice, who besides being dead clever, has also a wicked sense of humour!
The Ferrari F1 team fired their entire pit crew yesterday.This announcement followed Ferrari’s decision to take advantage of the British government’s ‘Work for your Dole’ scheme and employ some Liverpudlian youngsters.
The decision to hire them was brought about by a recent documentary on how
unemployed youths from Toxteth were able to remove a set of wheels in less
than 6 seconds without proper equipment, whereas Ferrari’s existing crew
could only do it in 8 seconds with millions of pounds worth of high tech
equipment.It was thought to be an excellent, bold move by the Ferrari management team
as most races are won and lost in the pits, giving Ferrari an advantage over every other team. However, Ferrari got more than they bargained for!
At the crew’s first practice session, not only was the ‘Scouse’ pit crew able
to change all four wheels in under 6 seconds but, within 12 seconds, they
had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold the car to the Mclaren team for 8 cases
of Stella, a bag of weed and some photos of Coulthard’s bird in the shower!!
