The Daily Hilario: World Cup, Day 8

Stevie G prays to the football (or the porcelain) gods - Richard Heathcote

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

Hard to believe that the World Cup is only a week old.  It feels like so much has happened!  Maybe it's all the goals?  Or maybe it's all the LOLs from Spain?  Either way, BEST WORLD CUP EVER!

And just wait until England get put to the sword by Cavani and Suarez!
