_
and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan press on has solved and

humor: 4!
========

After a particularly poor game
of golf, a popular club member
skipped the clubhouse and
started to go home. As he was
walking to the parking lot to get
his car, a policeman stopped him
and asked, Did you tee off on
the 16th hole about 20 minutes
ago?


Yes, the golfer responded.

Did you happen to hook your ball
so that it went over the trees and
off the course?


Yes, I did. How did you know?
he asked.


Well, said the policeman very
seriously, Your ball flew out onto
the highway and crashed through
a driver's windshield. The car went
out of control, crashing into 5 other
cars and a fire truck. The fire truck
couldN'T make it to the fire, and
the building burned down. So, what
are you going to do about it?


The golfer thought it over carefully
and responded...


I think I'll close my stance a little bit,
tighten my grip, and lower my right
thumb.
