Two golfing friends were about to tee off, when one fellow noticed that
his partner had but one golf ball.
"Don't you have at least one other ball?", he asked.

"What do you mean you can't lose it! What happens if you slice your shot

asks, "Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that anyway?"
"I found it."
