Regina Joke

The owner of the Saskatchewan Roughriders had put together a winning team,

missing only a stud quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges the NFL and
European leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer to guarantee a Grey Cup win.

One night he was watching a war-zone scene in Iraq on TV. In the background
of one shot, he saw a young Iraqi soldier with a truly incredible arm.

He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.
KABOOM! He threw another grenade 75 yards, pitching it right into a chimney.
KA-BLOOEY! Then he threw another into a car passing at 90 mph. BULL'S-EYE!
"I've got to get this guy!" the owner shouted. "He's got the perfect arm!"

He finds him and brings him to Saskatchewan and teaches him the great game
of football. The Roughriders go on to win the Grey Cup. The young Iraqi is
hailed as a great hero, and when the owner asks him what he wants, he says
he wants to call his mother. "Mom," he says into the phone,"I just won the
Grey Cup!" "I don't want to talk to you," the old Muslim woman

"You deserted us. You are not my son!" "You don't understand, Mother," the
QB pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in Canada. I'm here among
thousands of my adoring fans." "No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts.

"At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is
a pile of rubble. The elections are a joke, your two brothers were beaten
within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in
the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, then
tearfully adds, "I will never forgive you for making us move to Regina!



Have you ever been to Regina?

I live in Regina. It's over exagerated but funny, at least I thought so.

It is definitiely funny. I lived there for 6.5 years but I always stick up for my hometown. If it was someone who was cutting down the place and they hadn't even been to it then I would have a problem. of the greatest gifts one can have is the ability to laugh at themselves......I lived in regina for 2.5 years in the mid eighties, our first born was delivered at the Pasqua......loved the place.......

Glad to hear. I, like many others, have had to travel west to Calgary and have now lived here for the last two months. It's a great place except when the 'Riders get thumped 44-18.

I drove through Regina a few times. Does that count?

I lived in Regina for a good part of my life,( now in Saskatoon) yeah Ive seen the dumpy years, but its come along way. I think it gets a bad rap from those ...oh yeah I driven through or flew over it once type people. Recent revamping of Wascana Lake and the park surrounding it really looks good.

As for the joke it was funny and I and appreciated the humor.
