Any way you slice it

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

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

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

Jack admitted that yes, he had.

“Well,” said the cop, “it knocked over a lamp and scared a dog, which 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.”

Jack 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.”
