The Kid Jokes Are Hilarious Fellas
If you've spent the last two days working and not sitting on your couch watching hours of golf (points to self) then you've missed out on a few things; the beauty of Augusta, the phenomenal play by both Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell and the pairing of Anthony Kim, Ryo Ishikawa and Rory McIlroy.
It was a treat to see the three young guns play together, but what wasn't a treat was the announcers (and writers, it appears) to leave the kid jokes alone. At one point on Thursday the announcers joked as this final pairing was making their way up 18 that it was nearly their bedtime. Hillllarious.
Today, as I was reading over some golf stuff, I ran across this gem.
They may be hot stuff, winning tournaments when most kids their age are trying to figure out who to take to the prom. When it comes to the biggest tournaments, however, they still have a lot to learn.
Get it? Because young people go to prom and usually don't play professional golf. I mean, these are just golden. I'm pretty disappointed, though. No diaper jokes? They couldn't have hurt my abdominal muscles with a clever "I wonder what time recess is" killer?
Moral of the story -- if you're old, making a joke about a young kid is really funny. Do it whenever you can.
