Check out the FIFA Congress jokes as the dreaded presidential election was finally held and thousands watched the votes cast and then counted before Sepp Blatter was duly re-elected for a fifth term.


Despite the result, the event provided for some entertainment as many poked fun at the process and the significant corruption backdrop to proceedings.

These are the best FIFA Congress jokes from the vote:

White smoke coming out of the #FIFACongress means Blatter has won. A flying f*cking pig in the sky means Prince Ali has been victorious.

90 minute lunch break for the #FIFACongress. Because it takes a while to eat caviar, lobster and ten different cheeses. #FIFAelection

No need for exit polls, just count how many people walk out of the voting booth carrying a huge sack with a dollar sign on it. #FiFACongress

206 valid votes out of 209. Greece and Cyprus accidentally voted for each other out of habit, and Turkey voted for Christmas. #FIFACongress

Doesn't matter who won. Everyone still gets a trophy, a Capri Sun, and a baggie of orange slices. #FIFACongress

Paraphrasing @GaryLineker: "Football is a simple game. 209 men vote for 200 minutes and at the end, @SeppBlatter always win" #FIFACongress
