Mark Twain said of golf that ‘golf was a good walk spoiled.’ Now, up till today, I have tended to agree with this. But when Mark Twain said this of golf the world was a very different place and those playing golf were different too. Golf may well have been a genteel game for the idle rich.
In today’s society golf and membership of a golf club has become an aspiration for some, for others golf is a way to make business contacts or seal deals. For people like me golf and golfers are just annoying. Ok, I’m a birder and maybe i shouldn’t take the moral high ground, but I will.
After witnessing an array of golfing types today, I thought maybe the world needs a new quote to use when dismissing golf as a middle class pastime.
I was running a few ideas through my head and I thought it was worth getting them down and seeing what others felt or if anyone else wanted to comment.
My first thoughts were:
A fucking annoying game played by annoying fuckers.
A cunts game for cunts.
Golf, a game for the rich played by brown-nosing toadying cunts desperate to be middle-class.
Golf – cuntish.
What do you think? Personally I like the latter, it’s snappy and in today’s soundbite society, punchy.
