I'm not leaving until you've bought some missiles, May tells Africa

THERESA May has vowed not to leave Africa until everyone has bought at least one British missile.

The prime minister feels her dreary personality and toe-curling dancing are a powerful incentive for Africans to buy high-tech weapons they have no use for.

May said: “This is the start of a new era of cooperation between Britain and Africa in which they buy all our warmongering products or my visit will go on indefinitely.

“The idea that they don’t need them is nonsense. If you’re a subsistence farmer there’s nothing like a laser-guided Brimstone missile to stop a leopard eating your goat.

“Villages can club together to buy a Tornado GR4. In fact they’ll have to, or I’ll be there doing my weird little dance like a robot starting physiotherapy.”

South African president Cyril Ramaphosa said: “Christ I was desperate for her to leave, so I bought a load of air-to-air missiles just to stop the stories about walking holidays.

“Fuck knows what we’ll do with them. I suppose we can use them to sort out Johannesburg’s pigeon problem, but it doesn’t seem very cost-effective.”

Tomorrow May will move on to Kenya where the RAF will demonstrate using a BL755 cluster bomb to take out a hippo.

Jose Mourinho's guide to being a miserable bastard

HOLA, this is the Special One, Jose Mourinho and I’m here to teach you how be a proper miserable sod.

One word answers

Give one word answers to everything. Or you can just make a noise, a bit like a teenager does when they’ve been asked how everything was at school that day.


Seriously, if you want people to know that you’re just generally annoyed all of the time for no real reason, just scowl at them. They’ll soon stop asking you to buy their stupid Big Issue magazine.

Play a defensive style of football that neither the fans or the players like

If you’re playing free flowing, attractive football then you might win games and make people happy. And who wants that shit? No, better to stay defensive, park the bus and maintain a just generally annoyed and quite spiky persona at all times.

Get beaten by Brighton

Getting beaten by Brighton would make anyone annoyed, so just remember when you wake up every morning to go into your bathroom, look in the mirror and say, ‘How the fuck did we lose to Brighton?’. That’ll set you up for a fun day of being in a pretty foul, stroppy mood.
