Football stars aren’t always known for their wit, but there again 6ft 7inch Peter Crouch isn’t your standard footballer.
Yesterday the whole nation was gripped by Royal baby fever.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were overjoyed with the birth of their third child. And hours after the happy event, stood on the step of the hospital in Paddington waving to the crowd with the new arrival.
A lovely picture, I think you all agree.
Well, certainly Crouch did. The sometimes ungainly striker is known for his height and quickly found something to quip about in the iconic snap.
There they are, waving high into the air as supporters were seen waving Union Jacks flags and joined in an atmosphere of celebration.
And Crouch – all 6ft 7inches of him – had this great comeback.
His whimsical musings didn’t go unnoticed with over 1,500 retweets and nearly 6,000 likes.
The comments were something too…
But one person didn’t really get it…
Yesterday Crystal Palace were the fastest out the trap with a brilliant tweet after Kate Middleton gave birth to her third child.
The Duchess of Cambridge delivered the baby boy, weighing 8lbs, 7oz, at the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, on St George’s Day.
Her husband William was present for the birth, and both mum and baby are "doing well", Kensington Palace said in a statement.
The happy news was announced by thousands of news outlets on numerous social media channels, including AFP, who took to Twitter to write: "BREAKING Prince William’s wife Kate gives birth to son: palace".
The use of the word ‘palace’ was of course included to acknowledge the source of the breaking news, but a certain Premier League team took it upon themselves to have some fun.
Well, what else are you going to do on a happy occasion, eh?
Pretending that the word following ‘son’ was in fact revealing what Kate and Wills has decided to call their baby , Crystal Palace’s official Twitter account wrote: "Great name!"
The tweet received 845 likes – at the time of reporting, we estimate it is a lot more now – and hundreds of re-tweets. Brilliant.
Is Palace a good name for the new Royal baby?
