" Mind if I take a few practice swings? "
When golf first started, one under par was a birdie, two under par was an eagle and three under par was a partridge. They had to change that because you couldn't get a partridge under a par three.

Shall I Compare Thee To A Bale Of Hay?
Shall I compare thee to a bale of hay?
Hay is more lovely with a better shape.
Thou must have seen many a better day;
One look at thee and one tries to escape.

For a picture of wrinkled, look at thee.
And now the time has come to end this song;
To have it go on longer...
