Wayne Rooney gets £200,000 from EA Annually, just for Using his Face.

1 min read


According to the financial records of the world’s richest swine Wayne Rooney receives £200K from Electronic Arts every year, just for the use of his likeness. That’s just under 2 and a half million Rand, or 30 803 kilograms of Pick ‘n Pay streaky bacon.

Rooney – undoubtedly of porcine heritage – striker for Manchester Utd and England earns more than £760,000 a month for image rights. This, I feel, is far too much. Wouldn’t it be more cost effective to photoshop a Man Utd uniform on to a porcine farm animal of some sort? At least we know how he affords all those pies he obviously keeps stuffing in his face.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
