Inhaltsangabe: David G. Lavender has the second-highest handicap among members of the Northfield, MN Golf Club; this dismal circumstance reflects his lifelong lack of ability on the links. After working in development (fund raising) for several colleges and universities, he founded a successful consulting firm that specialized in institutional advancement and board management for many types of charitable organizations. He retired in 1998 to pursue a career on the Champions Tour. When that effort failed, he began running a nationwide fantasy golf league. "Fantasy Golf" uses whimsy, satire, and black humor to comment on his confusion and bewilderment over the illogical societal changes and many whacko events that have become an integral part of the American way of life. The messages appearing here are drawn from his fantasy league's weekly reports.
Auszug. © Nachdruck mit Genehmigung. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.: Here's a typical message: Bobby Warner (Northfield's most prosperous pig farmer) wants to defend his colleagues, the Pickton brothers, who have a large hog operation in Port Coquitlam, BC. Robert "Farmer Willy" Pickton, 51, and his younger brother Dave are accused of abducting drug-crazed teenaged prostitutes from Vancouver's "seedy east side," whacking them with baseball bats, and feeding them to their pigs. (Farmer Willy allegedly has turned his farm into a "private drinking club known as Piggy's Palace," and there are comments circulating in the area to the effect that "one shouldn't eat the pork chops.") "Whacking is not an uncommon practice," Bobby notes. "In fact, it's a prudent move economically. We're in business to make money, and when the price of corn rises to unacceptable levels, this offers a viable alternative means of providing our animals with essential nourishment."
