Following all that fuss about FIFA getting investigated for fraud (the worst-kept-secret in the history of worst-kept-secrets), I attempted to make a joke on Twitter regarding the popular video game series ‘FIFA Soccer’. OK, here it goes…

Meanwhile, in Electronic Arts HQ, discussions are being held regarding renaming FIFA 16 to ‘Grand Theft Football’

I thought this was quite funny. Not a single retweet or favourite. Yet when I tweet a moan about Leeds United being rubbish (something I am given ample opportunity to do), my interactions box explodes.

I am currently in the process of writing my wedding speech – a cause of much stress. Given my poor attempt at humour on Twitter, I think it would be wise to ensure no jokes, witty anecdotes or gags be used. There is nothing worse than an uncomfortable silence, when I’m expecting a room full of laughter.

I have always wanted to play a great April Fools joke on someone. I wanted to perform a prank which would go down in history as the funniest thing ever.

I had 365 days – from April 2nd 2014 until April 1st 2015 – to plan and execute my joke. Somehow, my plan for the greatest prank of all time was forgotten, so I was unable to do any tricks this morning.

Maybe I’ll start planning for April 2016…

With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks ago, I thought I would be organised and buy Claire a card. I took myself to Moonpig. I should say “other online card shops are available”, but I don’t work for the BBC, so fuck Funky Pigeon.

There are literally thousands of cards to browse through. In the words of U2, I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. One that did catch my eye was what you can see below…

Whatever happened to just saying “I LOVE YOU”? Oh, and in case you were wondering, I won’t be buying it.

If you don’t get the joke, you’re either too old or too young.

While you’re all enjoying tonight’s Eurovision Song Contest, cast your minds back to Ireland’s entry from the 1996. My favourite Eurovision song of all time.

I shouldn’t laugh…

[Rovers fans’ reactions after relegation]

I didn’t find it amusing when the very angry man interrupted his fellow fan, 53 seconds into the video, to bark something about the board.

The supporter shortly before the 2 minute mark was also very UNFUNNY, saying how he felt sorry for his embarrassed looking son, before bursting into tears himself.

Like I said, I shouldn’t laugh, because it isn’t funny. No, not funny at all.
