A Friendly Bet

Two lawyers, Jonathan and David, head out for their usual 9 holes of golf. Jonathan offers David a bet. "Let's say we bet $50."

David agrees and they're off.

After the 8th hole, David is ahead by one stroke, but cuts his ball into the rough on the 9th. "Help me find my ball. Look over there," he said to Jonathan.

After a few minutes, neither have any luck and a lost ball carries a two stroke penalty, so David pulls a ball from his pocket and tosses it to the ground. "I've found my ball!" he announces.

Jonathan looks at him. "After all of the years we've been partners and playing together, you'd cheat me out of a lousy 50 dollars?"

"What do you mean, cheat? I found my ball sitting right there!"

"And you're a liar, too!" Jonathan said. "I'll have you know I've been STANDING on your ball for the last five minutes!"
