“I played in a snooker tournament for the emotionally unstable. I was first to break”

In the game of snooker, one player is “first to break.” “Interrogating snooker players is SO easy. They’re always the first to break” is a pun that was posted on Twitter on May 6, 2013.

“I played in a snooker tournament for the emotionally unstable - I was first to break” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on January 9, 2018.


Wikipedia: Snooker
Snooker (UK: /ˈsnuːkər/, US: /ˈsnʊkər/) is a cue sport which originated among British Army officers in Etawah, India in the latter half of the 19th century. It is played on a rectangular table covered with a green cloth, or baize, with pockets at each of the four corners and in the middle of each long side. Using a cue and 22 coloured balls, players must strike the white ball (or “cue ball") to pot the remaining balls in the correct sequence, accumulating points for each pot. An individual game, or frame, is won by the player who scores the most points. A match is won when a player wins a predetermined number of frames.
