A Catholic Priest, an Indian Doctor, a rich Chinese businessman and an Aussie bloke were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers in front of them.
The Aussie fumed, "What's with those blokes? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"
The Indian Doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such poor golf!"
The Chinese Businessman called out, "Move it, time is money."
The Catholic Priest said, "Here comes George the greens keeper. Let's have a word with him."
"Hello, George!", said the Catholic Priest. "What's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?"
George the greenkeeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind fire fighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free any time."
The group fell silent for a moment. The Catholic Priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight."
The Indian Doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything he can do for them."
The Chinese Businessman replied, "I think I'll donate £50,000 to the fire-fighters in honour of these brave souls."
The Aussie said, "Geeze, why can't they bloody well play at night?"
Never be afraid to try something new. Remember engineers built the Titanic, but amateurs built the Ark...
There is less to fear from 100 horses under the saddle, as from the 1 donkey on top.
