A man was about to tee off on the golf course when he felt a tap on his shoulder and a man handed him a card that read, “I am mute. I am not able to speak. May I play through, please?”
The first man angrily gave the card back, and communicated that, “No, he may not play through, and that his handicap did not give him such a right.”
He whacked the ball onto the green and left to finish the hole. Just as he was about to put the ball into the hole he was hit in the head with a golf ball, laying him out cold. When he came to a few minutes later, he looked around and saw the mute sternly looking at him, holding up 4 fingers!
