What did the manager do when the pitch became flooded? He sent on his subs. God and the devil were having an argument, and Satan proposed a football game between heaven and hell to resolve the dispute. God, in his eternal goodness, pointed out that it wouldn’t be a fair match because all the ‘good’ players go to heaven. The devil smiled, replying, ‘Yes, but we’ve got all the refs.’ Football is obviously very serious business – like when that disallowed goal was ‘never off-side’, and that was ‘totally a dive’ – but it’s a funny old game really. This compendium of hilarious jokes will help you see the lighter side when your team is showing you up, and give your mates a good chuckle at the celebrations when they win.

The perfect gift for all boys who have grown up, but preserved their inner child..   There are only two notable differences between toys for little boys and toys for grown-up boys: the toys get bigger with age—and more expensive. Matchbox cars give way to high-end sports cars, model boats become motorboats and sailing yachts, and the plastic wristwatch turns into a Swiss chronograph with a perpetual calendar and minute repeater. The Toys for Men series has always stayed abreast of this male drive to play; in the latest volume, we present the ultimate wish list, a selection of the most exclusive, most innovative, and most luxurious toys that men with money can buy. Of course, the list includes the classic male fantasies of Lear jets, mega- yachts, and super sports cars—the truly giant and great things that move men in the air, on water, or on land. But it also includes the little gadgets—from headphones and wristwatches to SLR cameras—that make tech-loving men’s hearts beat a little faster. We also include the vices that speak to connoisseurs, like that special bottle of French wine, Scottish whiskey, or Cuban cigars. And last but not least, we include one of the greatest luxuries of all: having a product tailored to you and you alone, bespoke-style. But we’re not just talking about custom- tailored suits. Cars, golf clubs, skis, nearly everything today can be customized to suit your particular tastes. If you’re searching for the ultimate toys for the gentleman who has everything, you’ll hit pay dirt here. Because as philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche already knew, “There is a child hidden in every man: and it wants to play.”
