A group of golfers were telling tall stories. At last came a veteran's turn. "Well," he said, "I once drove a ball, accidentally off course, through a cottage window. The ball knocked over an oil lamp and the place caught on fire!"
"What did you do?" asked his friends.
"Oh," said the veteran, "I immediately teed up another ball, took careful aim, and hit the fire alarm on Main Street. That brought out the fire engine before any major damage was done."
