than the Queen
A famous English footballer had just been transferred for a record sum of money
and was being interviewed on television.
'Do you realise,' said the interviewer, 'that the money you will receive as
a result of this transfer, together with your income from endorsements, personal
appearances, lecturing and so on will mean that you'll have earned more in one
year than the Queen gets from the Civil List?'.
'Well, I should hope so!' said the footballer. 'I play a damn sight better
than she does.'
