This is the story of three Grade 5 school kids who decide to form a club to solve mysteries after hearing a career day presentation by a city detective. The story is based in Brockville, Ontario, Canada so includes a little local geography and some Canadian history. An older boy in Grade 6 tries to bully them at every turn but is rehabilitated when accepted as a member of the club. Mary, the first President of the club, calls a meeting to get everything organized. The boys quickly learn how to submit motions (mostly by agreeing to Mary's leadership) and understand the reasons for following Robert's Rules for meetings. The story includes a fishing adventure, an introduction to the game of golf and discussions with a retired sea captain about mysteries of the sea. Finally, the young detectives get an assignment requiring investigation and an undercover lemonade stand.
An overnight bestselling hot new release on Amazon in the sports - humor category, "Absolutely Hilarious Adult Golf Joke Book" features gut busting jokes, like
"John Daly walks into a clubhouse bar and reads a sign that hangs over the bar:
FREE BEER! FREE BEER FOR THE PERSON WHO CAN PASS THE TEST!
So John asks the bartender what the test is.
Bartender says, 'Well, first you have to drink that whole gallon of pepper tequila, the whole thing at once and you can't make a face while doing it. Second, there's a 'gator out back with a sore tooth...you have to remove it with your bare hands. Third, there's a woman up-stairs who's never had an orgasm. You gotta make things right for her.'
John says, 'Well, I've done some outrageous things in my life, but as much as I would love free beer, I won't do it. You have to be nuts to drink a gallon of pepper tequila and then it gets crazier from there.'
Well, as time goes on John drinks a few, he asks, 'Wherez zat teeqeelah?' He grabs the gallon of pepper tequila with both hands, and downs it with a big slurp and tears are now streaming down his face.
Next, he staggers out back and soon all the people inside hear the most frightening roaring and thumping, and then silence. John staggers back into the bar, his shirt ripped and big scratches all over his body.
'Now' he says, 'Where's that woman with the sore tooth?'"
Each joke is preceded by a golf quote, "These greens are so fast, I hold my putter over the ball and hit it with the shadow." -Sam Snead on the Greens at Augusta
Or, warm hearted quotes like, "There's a perfect shot out there tryin' to find each and every one of us.... All we got to do is get ourselves out of its way, to let it choose us.... Can't see that flag as some dragon you got to slay.... You got to look with soft eyes.... See the place where the tides and the seasons and the turnin' of the Earthy, all come together...where everything that is, becomes one.... You got to seek that place with your soul." -Legend of Bagger Vance
