Manchester united stronghold, the county of Kent, will this weekend witness the burning of a Wayne Rooney effigy by way of tribute to the affable scouser’s public service this year…
The Edenbridge Bonfire Society are all set to go whickerman-ish crazy and torch their very own impression of the snarling repeatedly alleged philanderer who famously this summer slagged off boo-ing England fans on TV in South Africa for disloyalty following another pisspoor England no show by the £200,000 per week rag talisman.
His recent agent fuelled financial sting of the Glazer ruined club needs no introduction but we’ll type it here again anyway.
On Saturday, four days before the Manchester derby, Edenbridge will see a parade through the streets of the town followed by the ignition of the 50 foot high Rooney, resplendant in full ‘MU’ All Over Now sponsored Nike kit and packed with fireworks where the sun don’t shine.
It gets better. ‘The Rooney Monster’ will be sporting green Shrek ears and will hold a lavish new 5 year Manchester united contract in one hand and a sports bag full of cash in the other.
It’s a truly horrible sight and surely one that will lead to mass protests throughout the rag infested streets of Kent.
Whether the famous in their own snooker balls and dart throwing time ‘rat boys in black’ will be able to afford the bus fare down to Edenbridge to threaten the Rooney effigy, nobody can say for certain.
Spokesman of the society, Mr. Charles Laver revealed it’s an inside job with bells on:
‘One of our members is a big Man U fan, so he’s been advising us on getting all the details of the kit just right.’
On behalf of all Manchester City fans, good people of Edenbridge, we salute you!
