FA Cup won

THE FA Cup was won on Saturday.

The trophy was awarded to a football team at a London stadium and then kept in a cupboard overnight before being placed on a bus.

The FA Cup, known to some football aficionados as ‘the cup’, is contested over several rounds each year between many of England’s teams.

The contest finishes each May with a match which can also be viewed on television.

Following the bus journey the trophy was placed in a cupboard made from glass. It may move to a different cupboard if the tournament is staged again.

Tiredness the main cause of racism, say experts

PHYSICAL exertion and lack of sleep are to blame for Britain’s racism epidemic, according to a new study.

Medical researchers tested 200 people and found that those who had less than six hours sleep, or had been carrying heavy bags, were 80 per cent more likely to despise someone because of their ethnicity.

Dr Julian Cook said: “For example, Nigel Farage would not believe all Romanians are thieves if he just spent an extra 90 minutes a day sitting or lying down.”

Dr Cook also revealed that racism peaks during late spring and summer as antihistamines cause some hay fever sufferers to become drowsy and filled with ethnic hatred.

He added: “I would not be remotely surprised if Nigel Farage was allergic to pollen.”

The researchers found that physical tiredness releases a ‘brain chemical’ which creates a rush of hormones, resulting in horrible interviews, bizarre social media postings and angry leaflets being handed out in shopping centres.

Last year, documents revealed the Ku Klux Klan was founded as a birdwatching society but became racist after the members stayed up all night taking about geese.
