Grand Laffs Went Out Without the Punchline - Here It Is

Golf Wager

Sid and Barney head out for a quick round of golf. Since they are short on time, they decide to play only 9 holes.

Sid offers Barney a challenge, “Let’s say we make the time worth the while, at least for one of us, and bet $5 on the lowest score for the day.” Barney agrees and they enjoy a great game.

After the 8th hole, Barney is ahead by one stroke, but hits his ball into the rough on the 9th.

“Help me find my ball, you look over there,” he says to Sid.

After five minutes, neither has had any luck, and since a lost ball carries a four stroke penalty, Barney pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it to the ground. “I’ve found my ball,” he announces
triumphantly.

Sid looks at him forlornly, “After all the years we’ve been friends, you’d cheat me on golf for a measly five bucks?”

“What do you mean cheat? I found my ball sitting right here!”

“And a liar too!” Sid says with amazement. “I’ve been standing on your golf ball for the last five minutes.”
