                                         Scheduled Shot

    At a golf course, four men approached the sixteenth tee. The straight fairway ran along a road and bike path fenced off on the left.    

   The first golfer teed off and hooked the ball in that direction. The ball went over the fence and bounced off the bike path onto the road, where it hit the tire of a moving bus and was knocked back on to the fairway.

   As they all stood in amazement, one man asked him, “How on earth did you do that?”

He shrugged his shoulder and said, “You have to know the bus schedule.”

Fishing Trip

   “So, what’s the matter? I thought you just got back from a nice relaxing fishing trip with your husband.”

   “Oh, everything went wrong: first he said I talked so loud I would scare the fish. 

Then he said I was using the wrong bait; and then that I was reeling in too soon.

All that might have been all right; but, to make matters worse, I ended up catching the most fish!

Low 80s

   “I play golf in the low 80s,” the little old man was telling one of the young boys at the club.

   “Wow,” said the young man, “that’s pretty impressive.”

   “Not really,” said the little old man. 

   “Any hotter and I’d probably have a stroke!"
