Chief worrier

A man applied to Sheffield Wednesday FC for a job on the administrative staff.  'What we're really looking for here,' said the chairman, 'is what you might call  a "chief worrier"!  Someone to worry about things like falling attendances, finances, league  promotion, violence on the terraces, and so on. For a chap like that we'd be  prepared to pay £75,000 a year. Interested?'  'Certainly,' said the applicant.  'But - you'll pardon me for saying this, I hope - where on earth is Sheffield  Wednesday going to find that sort of money for a job like this?'  'Ah!' said the chairman. 'That would be your first worry.'
