Any way you slice it

Joe, a notoriously bad golfer, hit his ball off the first tee and watched as it sliced to the right and disappeared through an open window in a nearby house.

Figuring that was the end of it, he took another ball out of his bag and played on.

On the eighth hole, a police officer walked up to Joe and said, “Did you hit a ball through a window back there?”

Joe admitted that yes, he had.

“Well,” said the cop, “it knocked over a lamp, which scared a dog, and it ran out of the house and onto the road. A driver swerved to avoid hitting the dog, and she crashed into a tree and her car is totaled. And all because you sliced the ball.”

Joe felt terrible. “I’m so sorry,” he said. “Is there anything I can do?” 

“Yes, there is,” said the cop. “Try keeping your head down and close up your stance a little.”

    It would have been an even better story if, after all that chaos, the ball bounced back onto the green and rolled into the hole.
    At least the dog wasn’t hit and only the lamp and car suffered injury.
