Dave the scouser is touring the USA on holiday and stops in a remote bar
in the hills of Nevada. He's sitting chatting to the bartender when he
spies an  old Red Indian sitting in the corner complete with full tribal
gear, long white plaits and wrinkled face.

"Who's he?" asks Dave.

"That's the memory man," says the bartender. "He knows everything. He
can remember any fact. Go and try him out."

So Dave wanders over, and thinking he won't know about English football,
asks, "Who won the 1965 FA Cup Final?"

"Liverpool," replies the memory man, in an instant.

The tourist is absolutely amazed. 

"Who did they beat?" he enquires.

"Leeds," comes the sage reply again, as quick as a flash.

"And the score?"

The wise brave does not hesitate: "2-1."

Thinking that details may fox him, Dave tries something more specific.

"Who scored the winning goal?" he asks.

The Red Indian doesn't even blink.

"Ian St John."

The Liverpudlian is flabbergasted and, returning home, he regales his
friends and relatives with the tale. But it's not enough and soon he's
determined to return and pay his respects to this amazing man. Ten
years later he's saved enough money and returns to the USA. After weeks
of searching through the towns of Nevada, Dave finally finds the Memory
Man in a cave in the mountains older and more wrinkled than before, but
still resplendent in his war paint and head-dress. 

Humbled by this vision, the scouser steps forward, bows, and greets the
brave in the traditional native tongue: "How."

The Memory Man squints at him.

"Diving header in the six-yard box."
