When the spiritualist had established a connection with God, the first one asks, “When will Manchester United win the European Cup?”
“Within the next ten years,” said God.
“Oh bugger, I’ll probably be dead by then.”
So the second old man asks God, “When will Torquay United win promotion to the Premier Division?”
“In the next fifty years,” comes the reply.
“Hell fire, I’ll definitely be dead by then.”
Finally, the third man asks, “When will England win the World Cup?”
“You must be joking,” says God. “I’ll be dead by then."
