The problem with the rule about getting a yellow card for an over-elaborate celebration is that once you have over-stepped the line, you might as well run with it and get your money's worth.

A friend's school exercise book, a steamy shower door and a car window are just three of the places that it is impossible (with a certain necessary immaturity) to leave without drawing a member on.
