THE FOOTBALL GAG

Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me

This simple act, portrayed in a comic strip, has always been a part of my life.

It’s a matter of trust.

When you trust, you run the risk of having the “football” pulled from you and you will fall flat on your butt.

All at your own expense.

Think about it.

Apply it to the current political climate.

The football gag is a joke that has been featured many times in Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip, Peanuts.

There have been several variations on the joke over the years.

The football gag has also been included in some Peanuts animated television specials.

The characters involved in the gag are Charlie Brown and Lucy van Pelt.

Lucy tells Charlie Brown that she will hold a football while he kicks it.

Charlie Brown usually refuses to kick it at first, not trusting Lucy.

Lucy then says something to persuade Charlie Brown to trust her.

Charlie Brown runs up to kick the ball, but at the very last second before he can kick it, Lucy removes the ball and Charlie Brown flies into the air, before falling down and hurting himself.

The gag usually ends with Lucy pointing out to Charlie Brown that he should not have trusted her.
