Former world snooker champion no match for Masters of the Universe

Better men than Joe Johnson have felt the wrath of He-Man.

Evil Warlord Skeletor's hopes of ruling Eternia were constantly foiled by our blond adonis, so what hope had one of snooker's unlikeliest heroes?

You might be a match for the all-powerful Steve Davis of 1986, but what is snooker's Mr Interesting when compared to the lord of Castle Grayskull.

And so it was that Johnson found his VHS copy of his 1986 triumph over the Lord Davis had been wiped by a He-Man movie.

Cue much mourning in the Johnson family.Cue, geddit?!?!

“It was for my eldest daughter,” Johnson said. “It was years after I’d won, I’d never thought to watch it back but her and her boyfriend wanted to see it so I said I’d find the tape.

“The tape goes in and we are all sat around. We could watch the last couple of frames and the presentation, do it as a family, you know? Quite nice.

“Then on it comes, He-Man: Masters of the Universe. Where’s my snooker?

“Wind on, it’s still not there. It’s gone. One of the boys had taped over the whole thing. Thanks, boys.”

BY THE POWERS OF GRAYSKULL!!
