The Premier League leads elite sports and entertainment on two fronts - it's the best product in terms of quality and comedy.
As much as there are The Simpsons quotes for every occasion, there's also a moment in Premier League history to please even the most acquired tastes.
Moan about modern football all you want, but the vast array of cameras capturing every moment of our game has made some moments immortal.
Here are the 100 funniest moments in Premier League history, ranked.in some kind of order.
100. Wayne Rooney's boxing celebration
With horrific technique like it's that no wonder he got KO'd straight away.
99. Dan James learns not to celebrate at 1-1
You can't really blame Daniel James for celebrating his 89th minute equaliser. It was a pretty delicious finish.
That doesn't make Crystal Palace's winner four minutes later any less funny though.
98. Martin Keown jumps all over Ruud van Nistelrooy
We reckon Martin Keown was pretty happy when Ruud van Nistelrooy missed his penalty. What do you reckon gang?
After Keown's initial deranged response, the Dutchman then gets bounced around by the Arsenal back four like a space hopper.
97. Luis Suarez bites Branislav Ivanovic
Luis Suarez truly is a master of shithousery.
What is so funny about this clip is the casual nature with which he sinks his teeth into Branislav Ivanovic, as if he is the starter at a Michelin star Serbian restaurant.
96. Alexis Sanchez stares down Olivier Giroud's scorpion celebration
"Oh look at me I can do a scorpion kick and I'm really handsome. Piss off!" (Alexis Sanchez, 2017).
95. David Moyes and the plane banner
Mental that yer da actually spent your university fund on this.
94. The toothbrush man at Stamford Bridge
So, so, so many questions.
Most importantly, where is he spitting the toothpaste out?
93. Tim Sherwood throws his gilet off
Tim Sherwood's gilet is made of 59% cotton.
That's second to none.
92. Peter Odemwingie's failed move to QPR
"Will you 100% be a QPR player by the end of the evening?"
"I just hope things will go well in the next few hours."
Spoiler alert: they didn't.
91. Alan Pardew confronts Arsene Wenger
It makes us sick that one of the greatest Premier League managers of all time was treated in such an appalling manner.
Show some respect Arsene, ffs.
90. West Ham's band celebration
Can't believe yer da kicked a hole through the TV after watching this. Just when your university fund was recovering from the Moyes banner as well.
89. Jesse Lingard turns the Emirates Stadium into a dancefloor
We do love Jesse Lingard, but he should probably get some friends his own age.
88. Chelsea play in Coventry's kits
After Chelsea brought the wrong kit, they were forced to borrow Coventry's away strip.
Pure, unadulterated Sunday League levels of incompetence. We love it.
87. Sky Sports News reporter gets an earful on deadline day
This was when deadline day peaked. Jim White has been on a steady and welcome decline into irrelevance ever since.
86. Ashley Young confuses Gabriel Agbonlahor
A throwback to when Gabby Agbonlahor briefly forgot that human beings are capable of walking.
85. Rob Holding: "He's built like a brick sh**house!"
Ah, English is such a beautiful language.
We never knew Arsenal defender Rob Holding was such a scholar. Is that a Shakespeare quote he used to describe Adama Traore back in 2020?
84. Matt Ritchie kicks a corner flag into a fan's balls
Matt Richie is an angry man but even by his own standards of mardyness, this seemed a bit unnecessary.
What had that bloke's testicles ever done to you Matt?
83. Tim Flowers and Jan Aage Fjortoft square up - and then kiss
We don't blame Jan Age Fjortoft. How could anyone resists a man in that goalkeeper shirt?
82. Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher react to Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool sacking
Jamie Carragher handles this well.
Aside from that fourth-wall-breaking look down the camera, of course.
81. Jordan Pickford costs Everton the Merseyside Derby for no reason
"WHY DID YOU DO THAT JORDAN?!"
[Proceeds to get the rave on]
80. Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira go at it in the tunnel
The real highlight of this exchange came during the handshakes when Gary Neville attempted to intimidate Patrick Vieira but came across like a constipated puppy.
79. Fernando Torres owns Nemanja Vidic
In the late 2000s one thing was certain, a meeting between Nemanja Vidic and Fernando Torres was always going to be funny.
Watching the Serbian fold like an accordian whenever Torres so much as breathed in his general direction was solid gold entertainment.
78. Aaron Lennon boots it against Gareth Bale's face and into his own goal
Did Aaron Lennon do this on purpose out of jealously? It's not for us to say.
77. Sergio Aguero steals Man Utd's title
The most iconic Premier League moment of all time and also one of the funniest if you don't like Manchester United.
76. Jerzy Dudek vs Diego Forlan
This isn't your run of the mill goalkeeper fumble, it is much funnier than that. Extra marks for Jerzy Dudek's collapsing in on himself like a newborn foal after realising the error of his ways.
75. Vincent Kompany's own goal vs Fulham
You will not see a more clinical finish than this. While attempting to clear a cross Vincent Kompany sliced it, with the ball remaining airborne for an eternity before dropping delicately into the net.
It looked really cool.
74. Santiago Vergini's own goal vs Southampton
Santiago Vergini (pictured above on the right) attempting to melt a Southampton fan's brain with his infamous death stare.
73. Referee strikes Robbie Savage
This was 100% not an accident.
72. Phil Jones crawls across the floor to deny Olivier Giroud
Say what you want about Phil Jones' United career, but if his willingness to turn into an earthworm does not prove his commitment, nothing will.
71. VAR haunts Man City against Spurs again
Can we just shock you? We like VAR.
70. Kieran Trippier's own goal vs Chelsea
We should have 'lumped on' Kieran Tripper scoring an own goal against Chelsea back in 2019.
69. Phil Babb's balls get obliterated by the post
An Oxford University study recently proved that is scientifically impossible to watch this video without wincing.
68. Tottenham and 'Lasagna-gate'
It is ridiculously funny that a dodgy lasagna was enough to prevent Tottenham qualifying for the Champions League.
Should've gone for the vegetarian option instead.
67. Mick McCarthy sees a ghost
A poltergeist haunting Mick McCarthy would go some way to explaining why Wolves did so poorly during the 2011/2012 season.
66. Wayne Rooney chops down Cristiano Ronaldo
*Makes ball sign with hands*
65. Ronny Rosenthal hits the bar with an open goal
The first thing you are taught about shooting is to keep your head over the ball. Ronny Rosenthal could have done with remembering this back in 1992.
Perhaps then the Rosenthal scale for bad misses would not exist.
64. Sam Allardyce laughs in the face of Chico Flores
Large Samuel being evil is a vibe.
63. Southampton lose 9-0, twice
Watching the Twitter account 'Has The 9-0 Been Mentioned' meltdown as United gradually built up their winning margin was a complete joy.
Whoever runs that account took it well though, immediately changing the name to 'Have EITHER of The 9-0's Been Mentioned'.
It was so funny, we are even willing to forgive the grammatical mistake.
62. Charlie Austin's referee rant
61. Man Utd change their kits at half-time
Always the master of ridiculous excuses, Sir Alex Ferguson forced United to change out of their grey strip at half time during a Premier League meeting with Southampton.
Apparently, the players could not see each other. Seems legit.
60. Arsenal score in the 98th minute, Liverpool equalise in the 101st
Not very funny if you are an Arsenal fan, but very funny for everyone else.
59. Jon Walters' disasterclass vs Chelsea
Spare a thought for anyone who had Jonny Walters in their Fantasy Premier League team on that fateful January afternoon.
58. Dion Dublin's sneaky goal
Before Dion Dublin became a 'stairs leading up to the bedroom' aficionado he enjoyed a former life as a Premier League striker.
If you cannot remember, don't worry. It's not the first time Dublin has been forgotten about. Just ask Shay Given.
57. Massimo Taibi's Man Utd career basically ends
It's simple mathematics that any goalkeeping howler look three times worse if you are wearing tracksuit bottoms.
Perhaps that is why Massimo Taibi's blunder has remained at the forefront of everyone's memory.
56. Neil Warnock confronts a TV camera
The Weeknd stole this aesthetic for his Superbowl performance. Neil Warnock setting trends once again.
55. David Bentley dances in his pants with Harry Redknapp
If you pause a 0:40 you can pinpoint the exact moment that Harry Redknapp's heart breaks.
54. Mick McCarthy and 'Careless Whisper'
This takes us back to more innocent times.
Like when the internet was more concerned with making minute long George Michael x Big Mick mashups than aggressive and largely pointless debates about football.
53. Manchester United 8-2 Arsenal
GOD I WOULD 8-2 BE AN ARSENAL FAN!!! AMIRITE LADZ!!!
52. Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal
One of the greatest comebacks in Premier League history. But why is it funny?
Because it happened to Arsenal.
51. David James tries his luck as a striker
With actual striker Jon Macken sat on the bench, Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce turned to goalkeeper David James to change his side's fortunes in a final day European showdown against Middlesbrough.
Shockingly, it did not work. And people wonder why England Under-21s won nothing while Pearce was at the helm.
50. Harry Redknapp isn't a wheeler dealer
If Harry Redknapp isn't a wheeler dealer, then the Pope isn't Catholic.
49. Rafa Benitez's 'facts' rant
Nothing says: "I won't let you get in my head," like reading out a prepared, four minute rant in your pre-match presser. That'll show Sir Alex who's boss Rafa!
Liverpool's 2008/2009 season fell apart after this. Fact.
48. Jose Mourinho's 'three' rant
This presser was a real slow burner but the pay off was massive.
The sudden leap from a 3-0 home defeat to boasting about winning three Premier League titles is peak Jose nonsense. We love it.
47. Mike Phelan frightens Sir Alex Ferguson
Only a Scotsman skilled in the art of swearing would be able to discern what noises left Fergie's mouth after Mike Phelan burst this balloon.
He was just trying to help as well.
46. Lee Bowyer and Kieron Dyer exchange fisticuffs
Imagine the shame of having to sit next to Graeme Souness while apologising for attempting to batter your own teammate.
The handshake PR shot is making own skin crawl just thinking about it. Cringe comedy at its finest.
45. Joe Kinnear's sweary rant
We tried counting the amount of F bombs in this transcript but we ran out of fingers and toes after the first 30 seconds.
For context, this is Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear giving one of his first press conferences after just a week (A WEEK!) in charge.
44. Arsene Wenger's zip
Why someone did not just get this man some velcro, we will never know.
43. Jurgen Klinsmann takes a dive
Coming into the league with a well-earned reputation for simulation, Jurgen Klinsmann boiled the piss of his critics by celebrating his debut goal with one of his trademark dives.
42. Fernando Torres' sitter vs Man Utd
Fernando Torres' time at Chelsea was embodied in this moment.
Latching onto a through ball, he rounded the goalkeeper and simply had to tap home into the empty net.
Hilariously, he sliced his shot wide, sparking pandemonium from the United fans behind the goal.
41. Chelsea mascot trolls Steven Gerrard
He's had Gerrard on toast with chilli flakes sprinkled on top here.
40. Swansea mascot in awe of Wayne Rooney
Ashley Williams looks a bit jealous here. He should have told the mascot about the time he beat Bradford City in the League Cup final.
39. Rafa Benitez's magic graphic
File this alongside 'when the DVD logo hits the corner of the screen,' in the things you love to see folder.
38. Ron Atkinson sits in the wrong dugout
You can't help but admire the stubbornness on show here. Deep down, Big Ron knows he's in the wrong dugout but there's no chance he's getting up now he's sat down.
37. Sir Alex Ferguson: "He could've been killed!"
Even by Sir Alex's high standards, this was quite the post-match interview.
The Scot claimed Robin van Persie was lucky to avoid death when Ashley Williams.checks notes.kicked a ball at his head. Righto.
36. Sir Alex Ferguson: "Absolute bollocks."
"Oh bollocks, I've just said bollocks on live television. Quick say nonsense instead before someone notices. Great. Sorted. You've still got it Al' ya dirty dog."
35. Liverpool celebrate a 2-2 draw with West Brom
This one is not quite as funny now Jurgen Klopp has enjoyed so much success.
At the time though, pulling out a tragically over the top celebration for a 2-2 draw against lowly West Brom provided rival fans with plenty of ammunition.
34. Eden Hazard spins Francis Coquelin like a Beyblade
This is the incredible power that Eden Hazard hides in his ample arse cheeks. A quick shake and opposition players fly off like a plastic bag in the wind.
33. Granit Xhaka battles the Emirates Stadium crowd
Call us old fashioned but giving it the biggun to your own fans is not the best look for a club captain.
If only someone had told Granit Xhaka before he threw this tantrum.
32. Boaz Myhill being petrified of Rory Delap's throw ins
Most players can only dream of having the power that Rory Delap enjoyed during Stoke City's' reigns of terror in the late 2000s.
That is a proper influencer, not these Instagram frauds.
31. Stan Collymore's shot bobbles over Tim Flowers
Would whoever the Ewood Park groundsman was in 1996 please come outside. Tim Flowers would like a quiet word.
30. Frank Sinclair's own goals
In a game against Middlesbrough during the 2001/2002, Leicester full-back Frank Sinclair completed the rarest of footballing sights, a 25-yard own goal.
It was one of six Premier League OGs he was scored in his career with each one being greeted with a shout of "not again Frank!" by his teammates.
29. Temuri Ketsbaia's mental celebration
Listen, we like players showing passion. However, stripping off and kicking an advertising hoarding within an inch of its life is a bit much.
Perhaps Temuri Ketsbaia just really hates Big Macs?
28. Peter Enckelman's error in the Second City Derby
Poor old Peter Enckelman. We're sure he doesn't mind us enjoying some fun at his expense.
27. John Terry's Chelsea farewell
Chelsea do not get anywhere near enough stick for doing this.
At John Terry's request they substituted their club captain in the 26th minute of his final game. It's the footballing equivalent of having a 'Live, Laugh, Love' cushion in your house.
26. Roy Carroll gets away with one
The look on Roy Carroll's face after he claws this back from over the line is akin to a puppy that's been caught pooing on the carpet.
25. Luis Saurez dives in front of David Moyes
This one is funnier than Klinsmann's thanks to the woman in the crowd who pulled out a double thumbs down. This proved she was twice as outraged with Suarez's shithousery.
24. Thierry Henry and Robert Pires fluff a penalty
Robert Pires and Thierry Henry are two of the smoothest operators in Premier League history.
That's why it was so surprising - and so funny - when their carefully engineered penalty routine blew up in their faces.
23. Mike Dean: "Off you pop."
Off. You. Pop.
The most powerful three words in the English language.
22. Kieran Gibbs is sent off for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's handball
Shortly after this Kieran Gibbs released a cover of Shaggy's 'It Wasn't Me'.
It failed to chart.
21. Neil Warnock stares down the referees
For a while we thought Neil Warnock's arthritis might have frozen him in place.
20. Jose Mourinho and Joao Sacramento's appeal to the fourth official
Once in a while a GIF comes along that makes anyone under 35 drool in anticipation of all the potential memes.
This was one of those occasions.
19. Steven Taylor gets sniped
Some would argue this was Steven Taylor's most convincing performance for Newcastle United.
18. Pep Guardiola screams 'TWIIIIICE'
A theatrical display of Academy Award quality. The gesticulations, the delivery of the lines, the ridiculous outfit, this is the best appeal for a decision of all-time.
17. Alan Pardew head-butts David Meyler
"Stitch-up. It was a stitch-up. They filmed hours of material and most of it is a good bloke doing a good job at work and the one time I accidentally head-butt an opposition player and it makes it to the programme, you're gonna look a prat. You head-butt David Meyler on telly, you're labelled a prat, and that's the game.
"And Sky Sports must have taken what, about 90 minutes of footage that day, and got it back and most of it was like, you know… "Oh, look. Here's a good guy, he's getting on. He's their friend as well as their boss. He's a motivator, an tactician, a great dancer. There's lots of good stuff. Oh, he's made one mistake, like any human would, should we just cut that out?” .No, what? Put that bit in, cut the other stuff out. We want a scapegoat, we want to dumb down. We wanna give them the biggest plonker of the year.
"I'm not a plonker." Alan Pardew, 2014.
16. Darren Bent's beachball goal
Did you know a beach ball was actually Sunderland's second top scorer during the 2009/2010 season?
Did you know Paul Merson pronounces the word 'balloon' as 'bloon'?
Of course you did.
15. Ashley Young catches bird poo in his mouth
See, that's just unfortunate isn't it.
14. Louis van Gaal dives
In professional wrestling, you'd call that a flat-back bump. A textbook one as well.
13. Phil Brown gives his half-time team talk on the pitch
Phil Brown clearly loves humiliating his players almost as much as he loves fake tan.
This bonkers moment was further burnt into popular memory when Jimmy Bullard spoofed it with a goal celebration the following season.
12. Arsene Wenger gets sent off at Old Trafford
The funniest thing about this is the reason for Arsene Wenger's dismissal. All he did was kick a water bottle in the air.
11. Chris Kamara misses a red card
There are so many immortal one liners in this but "no you're right, I saw him going off but I thought they were bringing a sub on," is our personal favourite.
10. Delia Smith's 'Let's be 'avin you' speech
Delia Smith traded her mild-mannered sensibilities to deliver a rousing half time pep talk to the Norwich City players.
Her vibe was less Middle England culinary icon and more foul-mouthed white van driver after eight pints.
9. David Dunn's rabona
The 'man getting hit in the groin by football' of the top ten.
8. The legend of Ali Dia
If you've never heard the legend of Ali Dia, sit back, relax and prepare for your mind to be blown.
With Southampton in the midst of an injury crisis Graeme Souness took a chance when he received a call from George Weah offering him his cousin. In a brilliant turn of fate, Dia ended up coming off the bench despite Matt Le Tissier thinking he was a competition winner in training.
He was soon dragged off when Souness realised he was about as coordinated as Bambi on ice. After the game he disappeared and despite various attempts to track him down, the trail goes cold after a handful of appearances for Gateshead.
7. Fan snaps Gabriel Agbonlahor falling over Anfield ad boards
Humans are terrible aren't they.
Still, pretty funny.
6. Referee Paul Alcock dives under minimal contact from Paolo di Canio
Paul Alcock would have made a killing as a silent movie star in the early 1900s. Just look at that comic timing.
5. Nigel Pearson's 'ostrich' rant
What would you rather do? Walk over hot coals, or be forced to spend an intense evening alone at the pub with Nigel Pearson when you are dating his daughter?
Thought so. We'll get the fire ready.
4. Steven Gerrard's 38 second cameo vs Man Utd
This takes "let them know you're there" to the next level.
During this perilously short cameo - in his final career appearance against United - Steven Gerrard's only involvements were clattering into one of football's nice guys, Juan Mata, and stamping on Ander Herrera.
In terms of lols per second, this one scores very highly.
3. Emmanuel Adebayor's celebration vs Arsenal
It takes a special sort of person to instigate a riot at a football match and Emmanuel Adebayor is exactly that.
What really blows us away in this clip is the sheer distance he sprints solely to troll Arsenal fans. It is level of commitment we should all strive for in our day to day lives.
2. Kevin Keegan's meltdown
Fun fact: our resident 90s football fanatic Toby Cudworth actually has this entire rant tattooed on his back.
£2000 well spent, we're sure you'd agree.
1. The Slip
Imagine trying to sell the movie rights for this moment.
"So a few weeks before he does this big speech where he tells the boys to not let it slip - and then he SLIPS to lose them the title."
"Sorry mate, that's a bit on the nose. No one is going to believe that."
Barclays does not get more Barclays than this.
