This was just sent to me - Sorry if you've seen it before. THE YOUNG IRAQI. Russell Crowe flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi play rugby league and is suitably impressed with the boy and arranges for him to come over to South Sydney . He signs him up to a one year contract and the kid joins the team for the pre-season matches. Two weeks later The Rabbits are down 10 nil to Easts with only 15 minutes left before the end of the game. The coach gives the young Iraqi the nod and he goes in. The kid is a sensation and scores 3 tries in 10 minutes and wins the game for South Sydney . The fans are thrilled, the players and coaches are delighted, and the media are in love with the new star. When the kid comes off the ground he phones his mum to tell her about his first day of playing Australian Rugby League. ''Hello mum, guess what?'' he says. ''I played for 15 minutes today, we were 10 nil down, but I scored 3 tries and we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the media... ''Wonderful,'' says his mum, ''Let me tell you about my day. Your father got shot in the street and robbed,your sister and I were ambushed, raped and beaten, and your brother has joined a gang of looters, and all while you were having such a great time.'' The young Iraqi was very upset. ''What can I say mum, I'm so sorry.'' ''Sorry? You're sorry?'' says his mum, ''It's your fault we moved to Redfern in the first place.''
