A team of mammals were playing a team of insects. The mammals totally dominated
the first half and at half-time were leading 39-nil. However, at half-time the
insects made a substitution and brought on a centipede.
The centipede scored no less than 180 goals and the insects won the game by
miles. In the dressing room afterwards the captain of the mammals was chatting
to the insect captain.
"That centipede of yours is terrific," the captain of the mammals
said. "Why didn't you play him from the start?"
"We'd have liked to," replied the insect captain, "but it takes
him 45 minutes to get his boots on."
