Stand proud you noble swingers of clubs and losers of golf balls.

A recent study found the average golfer walks about 900 miles a year.

Another study found golfers drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

That means, on average, golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Kind of makes you proud.

Best revenge against an unfaithful bride

wedding reception table setting

This seemingly happy bride and groom had an expensive wedding party with about 300 guests.

At the reception after the wedding, the groom got up on the stage and stood at the microphone to address the joyous crowd.

He said that he wanted to thank everyone for coming, many from long distances, to support them at their wedding.

He especially wanted to thank the bride’s and groom’s families for coming and to thank his new father-in-law for providing such a fabulous reception.

To thank everyone for coming and bringing gifts, he told them he wanted to give everyone a very special gift just from him.

Taped to the bottom of everyone’s chair, including the wedding party, was a manila envelope.

He said that was his gift to everyone, and asked them to open the envelopes.

Inside each manila envelope was an 8-by-10 picture of his best man having sex with the bride.

(He had gotten suspicious of the two of them and hired a private detective to trail them weeks prior to the wedding.)

After he stood there and watched the people’s reactions for a couple of minutes, he turned to the best man and said “F*** you,” then he turned to the bride and said “F*** you.”

After that he faced the dumbfounded crowd and said, “I’m out of here.”

He had the marriage annulled first thing that Monday morning.

While most of us would have broken off the engagement immediately after finding out about the affair, this guy goes through with it anyway as if nothing was wrong.

His revenge:

  1. Making the bride’s parents pay over $32,000 for a 300 guest wedding and reception.
  2. Letting everyone know exactly what did happen.
  3. And best of all, trashing the bride’s and best man’s reputations in front of all of their friends, their entire families i.e. their parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, nieces and nephews, etc.

Impersonal acceptance from a college


Who says that students who go to big colleges get treated impersonally, like they’re just numbers? Norris Dawson (names changed to protect the innocent) for one.

The parents of Dawson, a prospective Anonymous State University student, recently got a letter from the school that began:

“Congratulations on 999-00-9999’s admission.” (The number used in this story has been changed.) The letter, addressed to Norris’ father, Jeff Dawson, added that as a parent “you will be a partner with the university in encouraging 999-00-9999 to succeed.”

The father’s reply: “Thank you for offering our son, 999-00-9999, or as we affectionately refer to him around the house _ 999 _ a position in the ASU class of 2020. His mother, 001-22-4MOM, and I are very happy… .”

Peter Smith, director of undergraduate admissions, said the impersonal letter was a glitch in a batch of several thousand letters sent to prospective students.

In the first five, the computer picked up the student’s Social Security number instead of the name. Those were planned to be discarded but inadvertently were mailed, Smith said.

“We don’t know how it happened.” he said. The mother of at least one other prospective student informed the school that she’d received such a letter, said Smith. He could not recall her name.
