A golfer hits his ball into a yard next to the golf course..

As he goes to get it a man in the yard says,

“Don’t you see the sign? It says,”Private property Stay Out!”

The golfer says, “I’m sorry I did not see it

That is my ball there. May I have it,please,

The man say,”It’s in my yard and so it’s my ball now.”

The golfer looks at the man and says, “I understand.”

He then walks back to the golf cart, gets another golf ball,

then walks back and throws it into the yard

The man says,”What is that for?”

The golfer replies, “I consider myself a gentleman,

and I believe every prick should have two balls.”

Are you a real pilot?”

An old Marine Pilot sat  down at the Starbucks, wearing his old USMC flight

suit and leather jacket and  ordered a cup of coffee.

As he sat sipping his  coffee, a young woman sat down next to him.

She turned to the pilot and  asked, ‘Are you a real pilot?’

He replied, ‘Well, I’ve  spent my whole life flying planes, first Steadman’s,

then the early Grummans…  flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later

in the Korean conflict,  Banshees and Cougars. I’ve taught more than 260

people to fly and given  rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are  you?

She said, ‘I’m a lesbian. I  spend my whole day thinking about naked women.

As soon as I get up in the  morning, I think about naked women. When I

shower, I think about naked  women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women.

It seems everything makes  me think of naked women.’

The two sat sipping in  silence.

A little while later, a  young man sat down on the other side of

the old pilot and asked:  “are you a real pilot?”

He replied, ‘I always  thought I was, but I just found out I’m a lesbian.
