I just saw a funny headline on Yahoo news.

"John Daly Shoots 69 as His Wife Goes to Jail"

I guess I might have understood if I were a golf fan, but since I'm not, I was wondering who this John Daly guy was and why he shot 69 people! I was thinking maybe he opened fire in a courtroom.

I shot a 74 once, but then I had to go play the back nine.

There was a local fellow, Arthur Smith, that everyone called Artie. Nice fellow, well liked. One day though while at the grocery store, the cashier mistakenly gave him one less dollar than he should have in his change. For some reason, Artie went nuts over this, ranting and yelling that they were cheating him. He kept yelling and getting more and more angry. He grabbed the cashier around the neck and throttled her until she fell to the floor. The bag boy ran to help, but Artie grabbed him by the throat as well until the poor bag boy passed out. Alarmed by the commotion, the manager ran up and Artie promptly throttled him as well.

Eventually the police came and subdued Artie and took him off to jail. The next day the front page of the paper said, "Artie chokes three for a dollar at Kroger."
