    Default Sir Davie of Weir and the Battle of Britain



    As we all know Sir Davie headed Germans bombs from the trenches in the Somme but in the next war he actually distinguished himself as wing comander of 602 City of Glasgow Squadron.

    He actually make the first successfull kill in 1939, whilst patroling the skies above the Clyde estuary protecting merchant shipping smoking his pipe and remaining calm (that was before the smoking ban on planes of course), he noticed some German ME109's heading towards Ibrox.

    In true defensive reactions he calmly called 'tally ho' to his chums (including the uncles of Kevin Thomson and Steven Davis). This action along with several others saw Britain qualify for the next tie in France and saved Ibrox.

    Not a lot of people know that !

    Rumours are he taught Jesus Christ how to effectively use the offside trap.

    He earned his first international cap at the Battle of Flodden. Moving upfield for a late set-peice, he captured the English standard.

    Some of the youngters in the side were happy to have a calm, experienced capmpaigner on their side who could talk them through the battle.

    Davie should be congratulated for instigating the Cold War after WW2, so that there would be an Iron Curtain for Rangers to name their defence after.

    During the Crusades Sir Davie successfully defended Jerusalem against a strong attack by Saladin, as is his trademark he headed away several sling shot boulders that had been launched against the city walls

    Davie invented the term "logging on" in the 19th century, when he kicked down half a forest, to make the cleared area read "We are the People" from the neighbouring mountaintops.

    I heard Sir Davie took on the Zulus single handedly at Rourkes Drift.

    What a man!

    Apparently the log barrier that the Thims had placed across the river mouth to prevent the Loyalists receiving supplies during the Seige of Derry received a severe head butting from Davie, to such an extent it became akin to matchwood and allowed the supply ships easy access.

    Sadly I have to report that its not all good news regarding Sir David Weir. Apparently recently leaked NASA files have revealed that wayward headers from the big man were responsible for taking out not one but TWO different space shuttles

    It is believed that the Hubble Space Telescope is still tracking the rogue Mitres into deep space.

    Sir Davie quietly tucks away 5 shredded wheat every morning and is too dignified to reveal what a pussy Ian Botham is in comparison, he politely declined a multi million pound tv commercial contract for the shredded wheat campaign.

    If Davie Weir has £5 and you have £5, Davie has more money than you.

    Apple pays Davie Weir 79p every time he listens to a song.

    Davie Weir can sneeze with his eyes open.
