A golfer hit his ball into a yard next to the golf course. As he went to retrieve it, a very grumpy man came out of the house and yelled, “Don’t you see the sign? It says, ‘Private property – Stay Out!'”
The golfer replied, “I am very sorry. I did not see your sign. That is my ball there. May I please have it?”
The angry man snarled, “It is in my yard, so it is my ball now!”
The golfer apologized again and said, “I understand.” Without complaint, he went back to his golf cart, pulled out another golf ball, walked backed, and threw the ball into the yard.
The grumpy man asked, “What did you do that for?”
“I consider myself a gentleman,” explained the golfer. “And I believe every prick should have two balls.”
