Joke of the Week

A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course became confused as to where he was on the course. Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him.

He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing. "I'm on the 7th hole," she replied, "and you are a hole behind me. So you must be on the 6th hole." He thanked her and went back to his golf.

On the back nine, the same thing happened and he approached her again with the same request.

"I'm on number 14, and you're still a hole behind, so you must be on the 13th hole." Once again he thanked her and returned to his play.

He finished his round and went to the clubhouse where he saw the same lady sitting at the end of the bar. He asked the bartender if he knew the lady. The bartender said that she was a sales lady and played the course often.

He approached her and said, "Let me buy you a drink in appreciation for your help. I understand that you're in the sales profession. I'm in sales also. What do you sell?"

"I'll tell you, but you're going to laugh," she replied. "No, I won't." "Well, if you must know," she answered, "I work for Tampax."

With that, he laughed so hard he lost his balance and fell off the bar stool.

"See," she said. "I knew you'd laugh!" "That's not what I'm laughing at," he replied, "I'm a salesman for Preparation H, so I'm still a hole behind you."

What's the deal with Dubs?

So what exactly is the deal with dubs that every man, woman, and grandpa feel the need to trick out their rides with oversized rims no matter how hideous they may look? Chrysler 300's, Cadillac Escalades and Yukon Denali's seem to be the usual culprits. Has anyone seen a Cadillac Escalade out there that rides on anything less than 22's?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big proponent of aftermarket rims having purchased the first set of wheels for my 1991 Honda civic at a whopping 14" back in 1992. I eventually replaced those with a set of 15's and then the elusive 16's, 3 sizes larger than the original stockers. This was a big deal at the time as wheel customization was certainly in its infancy during the early 90's. Anyone with aftermarket rims was part of an underground culture and you certainly felt as if your ride was unique from a stock car.

I'm not sure what's happened in the past few years but somehow it's acceptable for 65 year old retirees to have chrome spinners on their caddy's. How about that grocery getting soccer mom with 20's on that Magnum of hers? For all the old school guys out there like me, it's time to dust off those 14's in our garages and bring this shiznit back to the streets.
