Manchester United Football Club explained.
Manchester United enjoy the reputation of having the worst of the worst of the soccer hoodlums in the world, as some Truck drivers at Austrian customs discovered:
"However two simple words can be guaranteed to galvanise Austrian officials into action such as you have never seen. A Liverpol driver, a Scouse through and through, and an ardent Liverpool FC supporter, accidently hit on the magic formula. After a six hour wait, his turn came and the window was slammed in his face. But he managed to jam it and while the customs man, now supported by his colleagues, struggled to close it, the Liverpudlian hurled every insult and word of vile abuse he could muster until he quite ran out of vilification. Almost in tears of rage and fighting a losing battle against the press of officialdom on the other side of the window, he reached into the recesses of his mind and spat the ultimate curse.
"Youse, youse....Manchester United," he bellowed.
The effort was electrifying. As a man the customs officers let go of the window,
the Scouse nearly breaking his arm. Then the office doors opened, and, fists flying, legs kicking, customs men poured out into the crowd seeking the Liverpudlian.
Naturally the waiting drivers, being what they are, immediately thought this was a little diversion laid on for their pleasure, so they all joined in and the battle spread throughout the hall. Curious policemen threw a few punches and beat a few skulls with batons which added to the general merriment so the drivers politely reciprocated until the arena was filled with bloodied noses, black eyes, ripped clothing and missing teeth.
"Vat vas all dat about?" queried a grinning Dutchman, helping the Liverpudlian to his feet.
"I dunno", said the Scouse, "all I said was Manchester United...." And at the words the battle recommenced.
Later, bathing his wounds in the pub, the Scouse said "They can't be all bad if they reacted to Manchester United like that."
The explanation is that Manchester United Football Club has played in Austria accompanied by a large party of their notorious, hooligan fans. The havoc and mayhem they wreaked can never be erased from Austrian memory and national consciouness. to imply that an Austrian can be related to a Manchester United fan is to imply that he is sub-human."
