Hey now, Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Comic fans! Does anyone think Eromlig is the only one who can kid religion and golf in the same joke? No? Good thinking! But remember. We kid because we love, right Erom?
A priest is playing a round of golf at the local public course when he arrives at the 15th tee. This hole is a 160-yard par three with a lake in the front of the green. It is also the padre’s nemesis, no matter how well or how poorly he is playing. Upon arriving at the tee, the priest tees up his ball, gets ready to hit and, at the last minute, looks toward the heavens and says, “God, I have been a good and decent man. Please, just this once, let me hit a shot which will carry the lake and get onto the green.” As he is about to swing, a loud, deep voice booms from the heavens and says, “Use a new ball, they go farther.” The priest steps back, thinks about the heavenly advice and goes to his bag and gets a brand new ball. He takes his stance and once again the heavenly voice booms, “Take a practice swing first.” The priest is now awestruck by the heavenly advice, so he steps back from the ball and takes a practice swing. He takes his stance and gets ready to hit and the heavenly voice booms, “Use an old ball!!!”
BADABOOM! And that’s my time! We’ll talk again in due time. Love ya! Mean it! Silver. Out!
