Would you believe that today is Golfers' Day?
Seriously. A day dedicated to honor the participants in just one sport?
Now I must admit that I have never quite understood the game of Golf myself.
According to you Humans, Golf involves taking a bunch of clubs and hitting a little white ball around this beautiful, big open field. I guess that's to pass the time until one of those Golfs show up. Then you probably use the clubs to attack it, right? But those must be some pretty rare animals, because I have heard about plenty of Golf games, but not one report of anyone ever catching a Golf.
Besides the fact that I would love to chase a ball of any size around all day, I'm willing to help you track down one of these Golfs if you can tell me what it looks like. Have any of you folks ever seen a GOLF? What kind of animal is it? If you catch one, is it even good eating?
Anyway, I don't know about you, but I can think of plenty of other things to do in a big open field.
Besides the ball chasing and hunting I've already mentioned, you could romp and play on it. Have a picnic. Play baseball. Lay down and grab some sun. Get the idea?
There are also things called "water hazards" and "sand traps" on this Golf course, as the field is called. I guess that's to try and slow the Golf down when you're chasing it.
Of course if I was one of these Golf animals, and I knew where everyone would be looking for me, that would be the last place where you would actually find me. It makes sense, right?
Yet from what I understand of the game, even if you don't catch a Golf by the time you've finished walking across that field, you might still win. The lucky player who gets that little white ball across in the least number of hits with the clubs is declared the best in that game.
But in most games, the HIGH score is the winner.
No wonder Golf sounds weird to me.
Well, whatever you do today, have a good week and be back next weekend for more Sunday Funnies!-AtP.
