From the Clown's Mouth: A golf joke

Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods are playing the 16th hole when Tiger's tee shot lands behind a huge, 100-foot fir tree. Tiger looks at Arnie and says, 'How would you play this one? Lay up and take the extra stroke?'

Arnold replies: 'When I was your age, I'd just play right over this tree.'

Tiger, not wanting to be shown up by ol' Arnold Palmer, proceeds to hit the ball high, but not high enough. It bounces off the tree and lands out of bounds. Tiger, really ticked at this point, asks Arnold how he EVER hit a ball over that tree.

Arnold replied: 'Well, when I was your age, that tree was only 3-feet tall.'
