Say What?

A New York attorney representing a very wealthy art collector called and asked to speak to his client. 

"Saul, I have some good news and I have some bad news."

The art collector replied, "You know, I've had an awful day, Jack, so let's hear the good news first."

The lawyer said, "Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed me that she has invested only $5,000 in two very nice pictures that she thinks will bring somewhere between 15 to 20 million dollars ... and I think she could be right."

Saul replied enthusiastically, "Holy cow! Well done! My wife is a brilliant businesswoman, isn't she? You've just made my day. Now, I know I can handle the bad news. What is it?"

The lawyer replied, "The pictures are of you and your secretary."

Do you know the meaning of these golf terms or definitions?

Wolf - A betting game for three or four players that allows one player on each hole (the honour rotates among the players) to go it alone against the others in the group, thereby getting a chance to win three bets on one hole. This player also has the option of choosing a partner for the hole. The player who decides to go it alone is the wolf, a lone wolf.

Woodpecker - An errant shot into the woods that bounces off a few trees—and makes a noise similar to the bird of the same name.

Woods; - 1. Type of golf club used to drive the ball a long distance. 2. Where the ball lands after being driven a long distance.

Work the ball - To hit the ball high, low, right to left, or left to right on demand. Corey Pavin can work the ball any way he wants. Jack Nicklaus prefers to work the ball left to right and has made a damn good living doing just that.

Worm burner - A low shot that buzzes along just inches from the ground—and the worms.

Wrist - In golfers, the swollen joint that connects a sore hand to an aching elbow and a painful shoulder.

The Beer Talking
We are in the BBQ season.  Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity.  When a man volunteers to do the BBQ, the following chain of events is put into motion.

(1)   The woman buys the food. 
(2)   The woman makes the salad, prepares the 
                  vegetables, and makes the dessert.
(3)    The woman prepares the meat for cooking,
                  places it on a tray along with the necessary
                  cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to
                  to the man who is lounging beside the
                  BBQ, beer in hand. 
(4)    The woman remains outside the
        compulsory three-meter exclusion zone
        where the exuberance of testosterone and
        other manly bonding activities can take
                   place without the interference of the
Here comes the important part: 

More routine....
(6)       The woman goes inside to organize the
                      plates and cutlery. 
(7)        The woman comes out to tell the man that
          the meat is looking great.  He thanks her
          and asks if she will bring another beer
          while he flips the meat.

Important again:


More routine...
(9)          The woman prepares the plates, salad,
          bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and
          brings them to the table. 
(10)    After eating, the woman clears the table
          and washes the dishes.
And most important of all: 
(11)  Everyone  PRAISES  the   MAN and
          THANKS HIM  for his cooking efforts.

(12)  The man asks the woman how she 
          enjoyed 'her night off,' and, upon seeing 
          her annoyed reaction, concludes that
          there's just no pleasing some women! .....
