I know puns are par for the course, but stroke of genius, subby.

Golf clap?

A clever headline, subby. I like it.

While I'm willing to bet money that this guy is a total fraud; there are legit disabilities that manifest themselves in strange ways. I had a problem with my left wrist that made moving it in certain ways very painful. The Karate Kid 'Paint the Fence' thing and trying to push against things with my palm flat (doing a pushup would be very painful).

But outside of those positions, my wrist was 100% pain free. You might have seen me the day before my surgery at the gym doing pushups with a set of pushup bars and assumed I couldn't possibly have an injury...and you'd be wrong.

I could imagine a disability that prevented fine motor control required for effectively using knives but being able to grip a club and swing it.

// But this guy is probably a fraud

Ok, a few years back me and some friends went golfing. We noticed a foursome coming up behind us, and one of the guys was golfing with one arm. We start cracking jokes like 'i wonder what his handicap is?' Then I go, 'jesus christ, it's Memorial Day, he probably lost that in Nam.' My god, we laughed even harder. Yip, already going there in a hand basket.
/he was actually really good, on a par 3 we saw him just stick it a few feet from the pin

Let's make a rule that if you get caught faking a condition to scam welfare, and we catch you... we get to cripple you in whatever way you were faking.

Genju: Golf clap?


Yes sir. if there ever was a submitter who deserved a golf clap... it's this one!

The reported incident is an all-too-common consequence of attempting to use the "disabled" toilet.

Came to laugh at judge Robin Onions, knew I wouldn't be alone.

Any way you slice it, this guy is an a-hole-in-one. He should be clubbed. That's the only fair way to punish him until he pays back the green.
 
2012-04-13 03:08:05 PM  
One wood expect the government to golf-clap him in irons for that sort of thing. I just hope his fellow inmates don't treat him in the rough.

Well-played, and +1 subby

The idiot should know better than to use a knife and fork to play golf.

You mean that 30 year old angry black woman who climbed down a small ladder after 'parking' her Toyota Landrcruiser across 3 handicap spots and she didn't have a handicap tag....wasn't being entirely honest? My faith in humanity is crushed.

That is when you pull a "Walter". Make a honest woman out of her. She'll be handicaped and have a reason to be angry.

....And then, her grandma got out of the passenger door and started hittimg me with her cane!

Excellent headline. Kudos.

Those tabloids like the Sun, etc, seem to love printing these stories about welfare cheats.

Their readers are in reality the demographic that benefits the most from social assistance..but they bleat like sheep about GOVERNMENT WASTE and DEMAND something be done about it, cheered on by the tabloids...let's demand that the government make it tougher to get assistance, yeah, that's the ticket. Let's support politicians who want to cut welfare, after all, all welfare recipients are all useless lazy bums, anyway.

That is, until they lose their job due to outsourcing. At 40. and then they try to get help.from "The Government". You know, the ones that the Sun readers elected to cut welfare.

Idiots.

Yep


And if you say something is wrong and they deny it, stop your benefit, then later you are vindicated by real medical people then you get triple money and no tests for life. Also the DSS doctor has to have done to him what he said you didn`t have...
