Renowned news agency and official website of truth on the internet, Al-Hudood, was on the verge of publishing a witty article about the antics of Brazilian player Neymar da Silva when it was suddenly stopped by the editor in chief who feared it could cause an injury.
The jokes in the article, written by al-Hudood’s resident sport expert, could have made Neymar topple over and sustain an ACL injury — hold on, we almost did it again. The article was excellent, packed with high caliber jokes, like, “outrageously tall blade of grass obstructs player,” and, “ world cup player falls after opponent exhales during a conversation.”
The sports editor, who could not hide his dissatisfaction with the decision, tried to convince the editor in chief that Neymar’s theatrics was no reason to discard the article: “did you see the joke about Neymar breaking his hand when he greeted…”, but he was hastily interrupted mid-sentence by his boss who reminded him that the administration covers all costs of indictments by deducting money from staff salaries.
A Brazil supporter confirmed that he holds the team of writers behind the unpublished article responsible for any unfavorable outcome in the World Cup. “The team is strong and has weathered many ruthless attacks, but I fear that these journalist have done irredeemable damage.”
