There's a whole bunch of things regarding the game of football and its governing body FIFA that don't make much (if not any) sense to people on this side of the pond.
It's reluctance to adopt modern technology, solve organizational corruption and insistence of awarding major tournaments to ill-equipped countries are just a few of the issues that defy logic and sanity.
This Saturday's World Cup encounter between hosts Brazil and the Netherlands is just a continuation of the senseless/pointless routines that are religiously followed by the beautiful game's ugly governing body. It makes no sense whatsoever to force two teams that have already been dumped out of the competition to play another meaningless game when they'd rather be back home.
To mock the absurdity of this meaningless contest that serves no purpose, here are 13 more things that are just as useless:
Our forefathers may have used them. We don't.
Because food is always so greasy?
Air Conditioned Shoes
Because smelly feet and all...
Every App Facebook Has Ever Created
Facebook, Y U keep on making stupid smartphone apps that don't work?
Portable Clothes Drier
Literally, the most portable one ever.
Do we have tails? Then why a bone for it?
Because putting lipstick on is such a difficult task?
Eye Stickers. Enough Said.
So creative, so artery clogging.
Head-Mounted Toilet Paper Dispenser
Yep, it's a real thing.
If the human appendix really is useful, then why is everyone taking it out and not dying?
So, if the Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal thinks that the World Cup's third place play-off match makes no sense, so what? The world is full of useless crap.
