After referee Patrick Miller went down with an injury during a League Two match between Hartlepool and Oxford United, Hartlepool defender Scott Harrison used the injured ref's white foam spray canister and drew an outline around the poor guy. It was actually his teammate who picked it up, but Harrison grabbed it from Neil Austin and did the dirty work; the free kick would take place from the ref's butt.

All in good fun, but Miller was taken off the pitch on a stretcher. So...all in good fun for most, anyway.
