Whoa There Shoaib
Good grief. So poor old Shoaib Akhtar has got genital warts.
I suppose we should be refreshed by the candour of the Pakistan Cricket Board, but I think I speak for the entire cricketing community when I say: too much information. Way too much information. If this is what information is then I never wanted to be informed of anything again.
You could accuse me of being overly squeamish but I still am floundering as to the reason why the PCB saw the necessity in such a revelation. Testicular degradation is the sole business of the owner of said testicles and should be kept firmly within the confines of his jockstrap. A simple groin issue would have sufficed.
My initial thought was that Shoaib Akhtar’s unfortunate affliction had been promoted to a flagship issue in some national campaign to stamp out venereal disease, but somehow it don’t think that it’s particularly high on the agenda for the Pakistani government.
Now I wonder if perhaps he’s the victim of a bizarre practical joke perpetrated by the PCB office. He’s rubbed enough people up the wrong way through his turbulent career.
Now he’s just rubbing his genitals.
Oh and a word to wise. Never type in ‘genital warts’ into Wikipedia. Ever. Particularly just after you’ve eaten your dinner.
