Quarter-Life Golf

Yeah, this is my friend Adam. (Work-safe -- just click it, already.)

He's 24. I cannot explain this behavior, except to say he is also a fan of Michael Bolton, has a karaoke machine at his house to which he sings Elvis songs, played football in college, actually has a fairly large vocabulary, and constantly blames things that go wrong on people "picking on the fat Jewish kid", even though he hasn't been fat since 1997.

Please tell me you know someone like this.


Have a good laugh at his expense, and then a good day!

you're not alone, we totally know people like that.

i've only seen it done with a baseball bat instead of a golf club, and it was known as 'dizzy bat'. the things men do to entertain themselves...*shakes head and sighs*

Ha! I have to be careful, because Adam's a dear friend of mine, but let's just say you wouldn't catch me dead acting like that.

... well, most likely, anyway...

He reminds me of most of the guys I went to high school with. Sad, since I said MOST.

Catholic school dudes just weren't that hip. They used the fat kid line - they just inserted the word "Catholic" in the place of Jewish.

Now that I'm thinking about it, that could have been a clip from "the Man Show". Guys are funny as hell.

He was doing it wrong. The bat is supposed to stay in one place and you rotate around it. Amateur.

The last time I had as much goofy fun like that in public was at my one of my brothers of indeterminate number's bachelor party. We went to a driving range and all but two of us had never gaolfed before. I tried the Happy Gilmore style. It doesn't work so well. And I never managed to hit the guy in the scooper mobile.

And that bachelor party had zero nudity involved. A little boring.

The Man Show will be missed.

The Kimmel/Carolla years, not the craptastic Rogan year.

Jali, guys ARE funny as hell. Which is why we keep them around, no?

And Chuckles: I'll pass on your tip -- I'm sure he'll appreciate it!

It's better to use a keg like one would use that golfclub and run around it with the tapper in your mouth.

"Rodeos," as they are termed.

Trebuchet said...

Oh, lord. That just takes things to a whole 'nother level, doesn't it?

Makes my kidneys hurt just thinking about it.
