    Ah now, you're getting onto sledging... can't remember the protagonists (one was certainly an Aussie - bowler I suspect)

    Batsman to Bowler: Why are you so fat?
    Bowler to Batsman: Because every time I f**k your wife, she gives me a biscuit.

    you can't beat some good sledging.

    After the umpteenth boundary, Hughes headed down the pitch, stood near Cronje, let out a fart and said: "Try hitting that for six." It was five minutes before the guffawing stopped and play could resume

    jonnye - your example glenn mcgrath and eddo brandes apparently

    I reckon this one is an urban myth as I've heard it associated with numerous cricketers, batsman to bowler and vice versa...

    ... however, while we're on the subject:

    Glenn McGrath to Ramnaresh Sarwan - "So what does Brian Lara's d*ck taste like?"
    Sarwan: "I don't know. Ask your wife." McGrath lost it: "If you ever mention my wife again, I'll F***ing rip your F***ing throat out."

    Perhaps another myth but funny, none the less.

    Thanks, F16. If true, these have got to be the most priceless ones from your great list - self-implicating Freudian slips flowing effortlessly - has to take some skill. How's it over in BC?

    It is fine in BC but not so sure about just south of us in Bellingham when I saw the news that they "uncovered" a terrorist plot not too long ago.
