Barry Cryer's Favourite Golf Joke

Blog | By Barry Cryer | By Barry Cryer | Feb 04, 2021

Two men are playing golf on a course next to a road.

Suddenly, a hearse passes by with a coffin in the back, on the way to a funeral. One of the golfers takes off his hat and says to the other one, 'I hope you don't mind. Just wanted to show a bit of respect.'

The other golfer says, 'That's so thoughtful of you.'

And the first golfer says, 'Well, she was a good wife.'
