Now, as the FA manages to come to grips with that final, they’ve not only charged Arsene Wenger for calling the linesman a liar (a playground taunt and a typically officious and righteous response) but they have also impressed upon Chelsea the need to clamp down upon the common practice of celery-throwing.
To be fair to Chelsea fans, they’re usually not throwing celery on the pitch – boring football is usually ignored – but instead at each other, singing the following lines:
â™« CELERY, CELERY
IF SHE WON’T CUM,
I’LL TICKLE HER BUM,
WITH A LUMP OF CELERY â™ªâ™«
I’m assuming the celery stick that struck Fab (I think) was a misthrow – some Chelsea fan got over-excited after seeing a hot female, threw the celery stick at his mate (or at her…what do I know?) and hit Fabregas instead.
Arsenal, to their credit, have not pushed too hard on this incident – although they could just be concentrating really hard on trying to prove that the linesman was a liar.
Chelsea have ‘warned’ their fans not to bring celery into the stands, but I doubt that it will stop the songs, or the celery-bringing. They could start throwing other items, or use other objects in their ditties instead of celery.
