We'll make him a Cardinal, he can play Shimon Peres… We can't lose! " Everyone agreed it was a good idea. The call was made and, of course, Jack was honored and agreed to play. The day after the match, Nicklaus reported to the Vatican to inform the Pope of his success in the match. " I came in second, your Holiness, " said Nicklaus. " Second?!! " exclaimed the surprised Pope. " You came in second to Shimon Peres?!! " " No, " said Nicklaus, " second to Rabbi Woods. "

The home team had been the victim of three or four close calls, and they were now trailing the visitors by a touch- down and a field goal. When the official called yet another close one in the visitors'favor, the home quarterback blew his top. How many times can you do this to us in a single game? " he screamed. " You were wrong on the out- of- bounds, you were wrong on that last first down, and you missed an illegal tackle in the first quarter. " The official just stared. The quarterback seethed, but he suppressed the language that might get him tossed from the game. " What it comes down to, " he bellowed, " is that you STINK! " The official stared a few more seconds. Then he bent down, picked up the ball, paced off 15 yards, and put the ball down. He turned to face the steaming quarterback. The official finally replied, " And how do I smell from here? "

After a particularly poor game of golf, a popular club member skipped the clubhouse and started to go home. As he was walking to the parking lot to get his car, a policeman stopped him and asked, " Did you tee off on the sixteenth hole about twenty minutes ago? " " Yes, " the golfer responded. " Did you happen to hook your ball so that it went over the trees and off the course? " " Yes, I did. How did you know? " he asked. " Well, " said the policeman very seriously, " Your ball flew out onto the highway and crashed through a driver's windshield. The car went out of control, crashing into five other cars and a fire truck. The fire truck couldn't make it to the fire, and the building burned down. So, what are you going to do about it?
