A young lad is walking down the street early one morning and finds a middle-aged man standing next to his car rubbing his temples, and swearing under his breath.
“What’s the go here boss?”, says the inquisitive youngster.
“My teenage son is being a proper d*ck, and has locked my car and taken off with the keys.”
The young bloke stands up a bit straighter, and says to the distressed bloke, “Not a worry. I can sort this out quick smart”
The gentleman watches in amazement as the helpful stranger takes off his trousers, rolls them into a tight ball and rubs them against the car door. Magically it opens.
“That’s so clever!” the guy exclaims. “How did you do that?”
“Easy,” replied lad, “These are my khakis.”
The owner of the car shakes the lad’s hand and proceeds to walk around to the driver’s side and aims to sit in the car.
The helpful stranger is puzzled, “What’s the point of getting in the driver’s seat mate? You don’t have any keys to start it?
The older bloke looks over and says, “All good. I have my cargo pants in the back seat.”
Bet you didn’t see that coming….

BEST BETS – AFL
The Gold Coast will meet Syndey tomorrow arvo with the Swans having their wings clipped last week by Richmond, while the Suns come in with 2 losses on the trot after a handy season start. Gold Coast normally struggle against Sydney, but with the Swans injury list piling up and the extra rest for the Qld team, we will be on Gold Coast outright at $1.72.
And Saturday night North Melbourne will tackle Richmond who managed to get the points last week, while the Roos bring a record 0/4 over the last month. North should some handy types back this week from injury and while the Tigers aren’t at full-strength by any stretch, they should be able to hand the Roos their 5th loss in a row. Richmond outright at $1.57.
BEST BETS – NRL
Gold Coast head up the highway to meet Melbourne tonight with the Strom carrying in some solid form after 3 wins in a row. And while the Titans won last week, it would take something special for them to overcome a Storm side that could also potentially see Munster return. The Storm should be running rampant over the CG side, so our bet sits with the Total Points Over 42.5 at $1.90.
Then Saturday night Paramatta will meet Manly who are about as trustful as a fart after Indian food. The Sea Eagles were no match for the Dragons last week, and the Eels overcame the Knights to go 8-1 for the season, and while this will take place on Manly’s home turf, we reckon the Eels are somewhat of an irresistible force and will score plenty of points to win this by 13+ at $2.10.
BEST BETS – HORSES
Fliengton gets the focus this week and we are going out on a limb with our best bet in R3, No.1 Alcyone. A cracking youngster for JC and he looks to be ready to eat up the 1800m and land a spot on the Vic Derby. $1.85…. better than a kick in the ass…
Our value bet of the day is R8, No.2 Plein Ciel. The step up to 2000m looks ideal after a 4th last start when he was ridden a bit close. Fitness should be spot on and with a proper steer, he looks the great value with the $7.50 on offer.
