A man goes to a public golf course.
He approaches the man behind the counter in the pro shop and says,
"I would like 18 holes of golf and a caddie."
The man behind the counter says, "The 18 holes of golf is no
problem, but all of the caddies are out on the course. What I will
do for you is
this: We just received 8 brand new robot golf caddies. If you're
willing to take one with you out on the course and come back and
tell me how well it works, your round of golf is on me today."
The golfer obviously accepted the man's offer.
He approached the first tee, looked at the fairway and said to
himself, "I think my driver will do the job."
The robot caddie turned to the man and said, "No sir. Use your 3
wood. A driver is far too much club for this hole."
Hesitantly, the golfer pulled out his 3 wood, made good contact with
the ball, and the ball landed about 10 feet to the right front of
the hole on the green.
The golfer, delighted, turned to the robot and thanked him for his
As the golfer pulled out his putter he said, "I think this green is

game I ever played. Thank you very much for letting me take one of
See you next week.
A week passed, and excited, the golfer returned to the pro shop.
Upon entering, he turned to the man behind the counter and said, "I
would like 18 holes of golf and one of tho se robot golf caddies,
The gentleman from behind the counter turned to the man and said,
"Well the 18 holes is no problem. However, we had to get rid of the
robots. We had too many complaints."
Confused, the golfer cried, "COMPLAINTS? Who in the heck could've
complained about those robots? They were incredible"
The man sighed and said, "Well, it wasn't their performance.
It was that they were made of shiny silver metal, and the sun
reflecting off them was blinding to other golfers on the fair way. "
The golfer said, "So then why didn't you just paint them black?"
The man nodded sadly and replied, "We did. Then four of 'em didn't
show up for work, two fileed for welfare, one of them robbed the pro
shop, and the other is running for President."
