The Golf Joke

- Abstract

Moses is in his office in Heaven. “Moses,” says his secretary, “it’s God on Line 2.”

“Oy,” says Moses. He knows what this is about. “Hello, boss,” he says.

“I’m at my wit’s end,” God says.

“Jesus?” Moses asks. 

“Who else?” God says.

“A nice boy,” Moses says. “It’ll be fine.”

“The kid is a showboat,” God says. “It bugs me. You he’s always listened to. Take him out. Have a talk.”
