The best jokes as Watford mascot Harry the Hornet dives in front of Wilfried Zaha

Palace player was booked for simulation.

There were jokes as Watford mascot Harry the Hornet dives in front of Wilfried Zaha after 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace in which he was booked for simulation
IMMERSED: Harry the Hornet

These were the best jokes after Watford mascot Harry the Hornet dived in front of Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha following a Boxing Day clash between the two sides in which the latter had been booked for simulation.

Zaha received a yellow card from referee Mark Clattenburg when he went over in the opposition penalty area, appearing to deliberately trip himself up on the leg of Watford defender.

After the final whistle, the larger-than-life Watford mascot slid across the pitch in an apparent attempt to mock the Palace star – an action new manager Sam Allardyce called “out of order”.

Here are the best of the jokes after Harry the Hornet dives in front of Zaha following his booking for diving during Crystal Palace’s 1-1 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road:

3 months ago #FatSam was England manager.

Today he suggested live on TV that the FA should ban #HarryTheHornet.

Football is a cruel game.

Watford, "We have reminded Harry Hornet of his responsibilities which mainly involve building communal nests by chewing wood to make pulp"

Its a shame #HarryTheHornet didn't throw a load of monopoly money towards Big Sam also.

Say's a lot about the @fa that if the take action against #HarryTheHornet it will be the first case of retrospective action for diving……

Sam Allardyce's row with Watford's mascot continues. "There's no place in football for cartoons with oversized heads", said Harry the Hornet

1914. British troops engage in trench warfare. 2016. Zaha, an adult male, becomes upset after a mascot mocks him. #HarryTheHornet

Fact: Hornets mate during flight and the male dies shortly after. Thoughts are with Harry's family at this difficult time. #HarryTheHornet

You know football has gone mad when a fully grown man is asking the FA to take action against a cartoon insect. #HarryTheHornet

Harry The Hornet surely can't face an FA charge because;

A – it was funny.
B – we've all lost our sense of humour

@samcunningham *my footing went 'behind' the player in question, whilst he was walking away from the away supporters #fact

Harry the Hornet could face an FA charge for simulation. Not yet clear whether it's for simulating a dive or simulating a hornet.

PLOT TWIST: We learn that Harry The Hornet was sitting on the other side of this table, and it was he who stitched Sam Allardyce up. pic.twitter.com/xExh8Q2Di7

Let's take a closer look at this embodiment of pure malice and evil, who Sam Allardyce believes needs investigating: pic.twitter.com/yjqsQiGz1d

@paddypower it's the look in his eyes that scares me the most. Empty… devoid of emotion. Almost like he's not human at all.

He’s in the clear! Watford mascot Harry the Hornet will not face disciplinary action from the FA for his Wilfried Zaha ‘dive’, per @SkyKaveh pic.twitter.com/Eex87aQ5RV

It appears Harry the Hornet will not face disciplinary action from the FA. What a bloody shame. The hearing would've been too funny.

— Gary Lineker (@GaryLineker) December 27, 2016

"Wilfried Zaha reportedly called the Watford mascot a 'Minimum wage wanker', after the mascot mocked Zaha by diving infront of him."
