THE OFFSIDE RULE EXPLAINED (FOR GIRLS)

You're in a shoe shop, second in the queue for the till. Behind the shop
assistant on the till is a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes which you have just
seen and HAVE to have.

The female shopper in front of you has seen them also and is eyeing them
with desire.
Dilemma: Both of you have forgotten your purses.
It would be totally rude to push in front of the first woman if you had
no money to pay for the shoes. The shop assistant remains at the till
waiting. Your friend is trying on another pair of shoes at the back of
the shop and sees your dilemma. She prepares to throw (pass) her purse
to you.

If she does so, you can catch the purse, then walk round the other
shopper and buy the shoes. At a pinch she could throw the purse ahead of
the other shopper and, *whilst it is in flight* you could nip around the
other shopper, catch the purse and buy the shoes.

However until the purse had *actually been thrown* you are not allowed
to move in front of the other shopper - (otherwise you would be
'Offside')...

So. how simple is that?

why not just post these in an already existing joke thread instead of making two new ones?

Probably not a good idea to point out the inherent sexism of the joke that it's demeaning to girls when implying that all girls think about is shopping and shoes?



biggrin

Oooh a toffee apple...!

I think he was asking why such a stupid rule was put in the game in the first place...

biggrin whatever, i just thought the reason for 'joke' threads was to organise jokes into one or tow places and not have billions of threads with one joke each.

fell free to do as you please hug

lol i knew the rule before im a huge fan but when ever a guy trys to explain it he does it in football terms a lot of women who arent really into football dont understand but in that way fr a woman who knows exactly what its like to want the last pair of shoes its a good explanation

and very very funny also

It's really quite simple, and it stops people goal hanging (waiting too close to the goal for an easy shot), basically if you're closer to the other end of the pitch than their last defender & the ball is passed to you, you're offside. That's it
