The hacker's wife wasn't speaking to him when he showed up four hours late for Sunday dinner after a golf match.
His explanation went: "We got on the first tee at 8 o'clock and still had to wait an hour before we could hit off. On the second green Charlie keeled over and it looked like a heart attack. I ran to the clubhouse, tried to get a doctor, couldn't get one. Tried the cops and ambulance service but nobody answered. So I hurried back, and for the rest of the game it was hit the ball . . . drag Charlie . . . hit the ball . . . drag Charlie . . .
A women was playing golf one Saturday morning. She teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.
The ball hit one of the men and he immediately clasped his hands together at his crotch, fell to the ground and rolled around in agony.
The woman rushed to the man and said earnestly "I'm a physical therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow me".
"Ooh, no, I'll be fine in a minute", he replied breathlessly, his hands still clasped together at his crotch.
But she persisted, and he finally said she could help. She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, she loosened his pants, and put her hands inside and began to massage him. She then asked, "How does that feel?
He replied: "It feels great, but my thumb still hurts like the dickens."
