not funny

Roberto Carlos doesn’t have a future in comedy, apparently

Story hilariously depicted using Photoshop wizardry

Robert Carlos

In the same way that you’d be hard pushed to find a Loose Women audience member who doesn’t occasionally pull over on the way to pick up the kids to weep hysterically and repeatedly thump the steering wheel - before pulling herself together, reapplying her mascara, and putting a brave face on her crumbling marriage – one suspects that a quest for a genuinely hilarious footballer would take on Holy Grail proportions.

A hunch reinforced today, thanks to our buddies over at Dirty Tackle, who have uncovered some inside information about Roberto Carlos and his joke-telling credentials.

His Corinthian team mate, Moacir, reportedly said this:

“I never expected that Roberto Carlos was going to be like he is.”

“He is a good person and he cheers people up with all the jokes he tells.”

“The jokes Roberto tells are so outdated and I can’t even remember any of them.”

“If nobody laughs when he tells them he will laugh alone. He always thinks we’re laughing at his jokes but most of the time we’re just laugh at him.”

And with that, the search continues.

If you can think of a genuinely funny footballer, let us know with a comment, and humble pie shall be consumed.

    If former footballers count, I saw clips of Alan Kennedy doing after dinner speaking before the Sunderland game, he was funny.
