Spring SEC Football Humor

I found both these on Friday and thought I could put together an SEC football edition even though we are months away from kickoff.

Here is the SEC if they were played by characters from the Simpsons:

I especially like the characters for South Carolina, LSU and Tennessee. Seems to work well.

And the following has been around for a while. It’s a tad crass, so be forewarned, but it is funny.

And from the land of the surreal, the trial for the man accused of poisoning the Toomer’s Corner oak trees at the University of Auburn, had to be moved because the original site was just too darn close to the University of Auburn.

For those of you who are not aware of this even, Harvey Updyke got so mad the last time the Auburn Tigers beat the Alabama Crimson Tide, three years ago when Auburn won the national title, that he went down to Auburn and poisoned all the oak trees at Toomer’s Corner. This is significant to Auburn fans because every time the Tigers accomplish something great, like beating Alabama, they run to the corner and toilet paper all the trees. This fine tradition was started back in the early 1970s, when the quarterback for Auburn said that they were going to go up to Tuscaloosa and beat the, then ranked number 2 in the AP polls, beat the number 2 out of Alabama. They did, and the fans used toilet paper in honor of the great event.

Updyke couldn’t get over the fact that his Crimson Tide was beat by Cam Newton and the Tigers, AND some rascally Auburn fan put a Cam Newton jersey on the hallowed statue of Bear Bryant. His solution to the loss and insult was to poison all the oak trees.

What makes it even wilder is the Updyke called up the Paul Finebaum radio show, which covers Alabama/Auburn football… year around… 24/7,… 7 days a week… OK, not that much but you get the idea, … Updyke calls the show, boasts that he has poisoned the trees and then is surprised when he gets arrested for it.

Yes, the story is quite surreal.
