Cricket (pun)
 

Surely you have heard about England's great cricketing family, Fotheringbushes. Bats were handed from father to son and the refinements of the game were drilled into the young men of the family from the age of six. While most of them observed the decorum of the genteel game, one scion, Herbert, had an unruly temper and to his family's shame insisted on disputing the calls made by the arbiters of the game.

In one particularly close match, Herbert's temper reached such a peak that he rushed to the man in charge of the game, pummelled him, knocked him to the ground and sat on the squirming squire. Fotheringbush Senior, aghast at his progeny's behaviour, rushed from the clubhouse onto the field, and pulled off the lad.

"Surely, my boy," he admonished sternly, "you above all others should know that the son never sits on the British umpire!" (By Bennett Cerf)
