• Every high school track meet has been delayed waiting for police to remove golfers practicing bunker shots from long jump pits.

• To handle crowds the Paddock Chevrolet Golf Dome has added an executive miniature golf course – all par ones.

• For penance local priests are telling parishioners to say two Hail Mary’s and watch Don Paul’s forecast.

• The Brookfield Country Club has hired Michael Cohen to sue Canada for excessive cold air.

• Local golf shops now carry golf mittens, insulated Footjoys, and soft-spike crampons.

• Driving ranges have replaced flag targets with Kevin O’Connell cut-outs.
