Sheikh Jimbob Shawaddywaddy exclusively reveals his interest in Leeds United to TSS;

 

“The first of April seems such an appropriate day to be ‘foolish’ with my money and buy what is most certainly a asset-less and over-priced club, from a known and untrusted English villain.”

 So hard to resist April Fools Day pranks when you’re in such a position to manipulate NewsNow.

Go on… Tell me you already knew and I didn’t fool anyone! (rolls-eyes)

Since I wasted your time in coming here, I thought I’d better provide you something worth reading. It’s not Leeds United related, nor is it football related, but here’s my favourite April Fools prank of all time;

UFO Lands in London

1989: On March 31, 1989 thousands of motorists driving on the highway outside London looked up in the air to see a glowing flying saucer descending on their city. Many of them pulled to the side of the road to watch the bizarre craft float through the air. The saucer finally landed in a field on the outskirts of London where local residents immediately called the police to warn them of an alien invasion. Soon the police arrived on the scene, and one brave officer approached the craft with his truncheon extended before him. When a door in the craft popped open, and a small, silver-suited figure emerged, the policeman ran in the opposite direction. The saucer turned out to be a hot-air balloon that had been specially built to look like a UFO by Richard Branson, the 36-year-old chairman of Virgin Records. The stunt combined his passion for ballooning with his love of pranks. His plan was to land the craft in London’s Hyde Park on April 1. Unfortunately, the wind blew him off course, and he was forced to land a day early in the wrong location.

    Its my birthday today and i should know better but i still fell for it, bugger. :)

    • TSS

      I thought it’d seem too good to be true. We are Leeds United afterall and good things generally don’t happen to us. Happy birthday anyway mate, hope you have a good one. MOT

      • Leeds4eva

        It`ll be a better birthday if we get 3 pts on saturday.

  • TSS

    Seems Leeds MET couldn’t resist either. I love April Fools Day – http://www.leedsmet.ac.uk/news/index_dinosaur_egg_010410.htm

    Another pointless story on a not very good website

    • TSS

      Aww.. did someone get fooled and lose their sense of humour? Diddums.

    • timm

      Oh dear, sounds like somebody doesn’t have a sense of humour? Other sites are available if you don’t like this one.

      • Matt

        Quote “Another pointless story on a not very good website”, but somehow MB73, has been on here to get fooled. I tend not to look at very good websites myelf. Because I have te mental capacity to choose what I go on, obviously some people don’t.

    Today would be the best time to buy a club though…imagine if it was true, nobody would believe it!

    “But look, I’ve got Fernando Torres here! Signing a contract!”
    “Nah, photoshop. It’s April 1st after all.”

  • Raph

    Cant believe i fell for it m8 haha, my excuse…i got a new watch and date is a couple daus fast and forgot to alter, so it says its 3rd today so i had no idea it was 1st lol! Ah well dont remember seeing the chap with no sense of humour on here before :). Quite refreshing not having to read about whats going wrong at lufc

  • Mike

    add me to the idiot list….

    The first thing I though was hope has more brass than the short git at City

  • Timmo

    Is this a joke?

  • Matt BB

    of course ken tried his own april fools (extremely early) with the repurchase of Thorp Arch, apparently he had no money to do it of course in reality, or did he?

  • Pete

    Knowing our luck, it’ll be true when one of the Bin Laden family buys the club as a plaything…even though 1) they’re utterly, spectacularly minted, beyond the dreams of even Abramovich or even Man City’s owner, and could bankroll the signing of anybody we’d want, and 2) they’ve allegedly disowned Osama, I can imagine the headlines, mostly along the lines of “Could this club do anything else to make themselves less popular?”

    I must admit I was half-expecting something like this in the national press today…that or there’d be a story about Jermaine Beckford being England’s world cup saviour

  • eddie o’reilly
