I used this joke to explain to a team what they had to do was what hey had been trained for, does this make me a racist?
NASA decided to send a shuttle into space with two monkeys and an astronaut on board. After months of training, they placed all three in the shuttle and prepared for launch.
Mission Control Center announced, “This is Mission Control to Monkey One. Do your stuff.”
The first monkey began frantically typing and the shuttle took off.
Two hours later, NASA’s mission control center announced, “This is Mission Control to Monkey Two. Do your stuff.”
The second monkey started typing like mad and the shuttle separated from the empty fuel tanks.
Another two hours later Mission Control Center announced, “This is Mission Control to Astronaut… “
At this, the astronaut shouted “I know, I know — feed the monkeys and don’t touch anything.”
Kick It Out has released the following statement with regards to reports concerning comments made by England manager Roy Hodgson in the dressing room during the half-time interval of Tuesday’s (15 October) World Cup qualifying match against Poland at Wembley Stadium:
“Kick It Out, football’s equality and inclusion campaign, recognises and shares the concerns of the parties who felt mindful to bring the comments into the public domain.
“The matter has been raised by the Chair, Lord Herman Ouseley, directly with The Football Association (FA), who acknowledges the apology made by Roy Hodgson, and now seeks an investigation to ascertain the full facts and ensure a similar situation does not arise again.”
Roy Hodgson has already been forced to making an apology after cracking this joke to
encouraging right-back Chris Smalling to play the ball more frequently to Andros Townsend.
A Scottish (entertainment) journalist has broken news that at least one player was shocked by the remark because he thought it could be perceived as racist.
