Cheater

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 says to Barney, "Let's say we make the time worth the while, at least for one of us, and spot $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 cuts 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-point 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 have 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'll have you know I've been standing on your ball for the last five minutes!"

 


Forgotten anniversary

A sad-faced Todd walked into a flower shop early one morning. The clerk was ready to take his order for a funeral piece, based on the look on Todd's face, but soon realised his assumption was wrong as Todd asked for a basket of flowers sent to his wife for their anniversary.

"And what day will that be?" the clerk asked.

Glumly he replied, "Yesterday."

ID Ten T error

An old lady was having trouble with her computer and called a local computer fix-it company for help. The serviceman clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem almost immediately.

As he left, the lady called after him, "So, what was wrong?"

He replied, "You had an ID Ten T error."

A puzzled expression ran over her face. "What's an ID Ten T error in case this happens again?"

He just grinned and said "Write it down - I think you'll be able to figure it out yourself."

She wrote: "ID10T".

Will power

A beggar walked up to a well-dressed fat woman shopping on Rodeo Drive and said, "I haven't eaten anything in four days." She looked at him and said, "God, I wish I had your willpower."
