One Hundred and Deity

by duncanr

no jesus150A darts competition at Butlins in Minehead, Somerset was disrupted last year when the crowd began a chant of ‘Jesus’ on sighting bearded Nathan Grindal. As a result, the tournament organisers had him thrown out

This year they were taking no chances of a repeat occurrence and prevented Nathan (Jesus) Grindal from attending the competition

They say it was to prevent crowd trouble

I think it was because they didn’t want their bar takings affected by the bugger turning water into wine ๐Ÿ˜†

  1. Title of the month, Dunc.

    Anyway, if this Jesus character ever existed, he wouldn’t have looked anything like an Aussie electrician.


    • I agree, the title is brilliant

      Wish I could claim credit for it but that belongs to the Mirror

      Was trying to think of a witty title for this post that combined a religious and darts reference but having read the Mirror title, I had a mental block – I couldn’t think of anything that didn’t sound ‘lame’ in comparison to that brilliant title (so I nicked it instead)


  2. The Mirror had it sewn up last year, too:

    “Sacred dart: Jesus lookalike kicked out of TV darts tournament because of crowd chants”.


  3. And for those who missed it, here’s my post covering last year’s event ๐Ÿ˜†
