I haven't been this upset since I found out the Fark Tucson golf outing wasn't going to be held at the minature golf place with the giant Tiki head.

Will they get him into his grave in one attempt? Probably, but watch out for the windmill.
 
2006-02-17 02:02:36 PM  
The funeral would have been easier on all involved if the pall bearers didn't have to make it through that windmill.

every time i put my balls in his mouth, some stupid clown shoots them back out...

... just sayin.

It's putt-putt.

I've been to that golf course in Williamsport. Fun!

Miniature golf clap, you mean.

Tea-bag a corpse? That's gross and probably illegal in most states....
 
2006-02-17 02:24:20 PM  
Wow.

That's more tasteless than...umm, something without flavor.

I like it!
 
2006-02-17 02:24:54 PM  
says he was 89. thats a decent life span...about par for the course.

/couldn't resist
 
2006-02-17 02:24:54 PM  
I smell a photoshop contest of his headstone... a windmill, per chance?

Mourners are being asked to sign the condolences guest book with stubby little pencils.

I just put a mint in my mouth and it almost went down my windpipe when I read the headline. I guess submitter gets a free game too, then.
 
2006-02-17 02:30:16 PM  
This is like Cheney's hunting accident. Easy to make a joke but not so easy for it to actually be funny.
 
2006-02-17 02:30:52 PM  
Damn him, and his infernal bridges!!!!

/not really
//good way to waste time on the first date
 
2006-02-17 02:31:16 PM  
If he was jewish, do people put golf balls on his head stone instead of rocks?
 
2006-02-17 02:31:16 PM  
Ah, yes, the game of hitting balls with sticks. Rather like domestic violence, if you ask me.
 
2006-02-17 02:33:04 PM  
Get the ball in his mouth??

I know this is Fark, but that seems a little tasteless, and pretty unfunny to boot.

Now,

Mourners are being asked to sign the condolences guest book with stubby little pencils.

or

The funeral would have been easier on all involved if the pall bearers didn't have to make it through that windmill.

would have made MUCH better headlines, not because they're not tasteless, but because they're funnier.

/just sayin, if you are going to mock the dead, at least do it cleverly...

"See these? These are the world's tiniest hands, and they're golf-clapping just for you"

wader:

agreed. the 'stubby pencils' headline is the best of the three, imo.

Anybody got some good links to free online minigolf games?

remember. when you go play puttputt golf but bring your own putter - no one thinks your Mr. Golf God. they think you're an a55.

Zany Golf was one of the best damn games ever.

I never knew mini-golf originated from CNY.

I may think your humor is infantile, but i'll defend to the death your right to be an infant.

poop.

I doubt the dead care, really.
 
2006-02-17 03:02:05 PM  
The funeral should be held at this funeral home... complete with a mini-golf course in the basement.
 
2006-02-17 03:02:58 PM  
I would like to say a few words about the departed:

It's easy to grin, when your ship has come in,
and you have the stock market beat.
But the man worthwhile
is the man who can smile
when his pants are too tight in the seat!

Probably not Mississippi....

From the article: "He loved to see people laugh," said his daughter, Sharon Anderson. "He loved the background noise of people having fun." Wish more people shared his attitude.

I've had many hours of enjoyment playing many different variations of his idea, all over the world. Thanks for that.

I didn't read the article to see what killed him, but I'm guessing he had reached the six stroke maximum.

I'm from Binghamton, and I have to say that it's funny all of the things that I've learned about it. Check it out on Wiki. Anyway, it's turned into a hole now, so I'm glad I'm not there anylonger

To match the two on his chin.
