Two movie producers got the idea of playing golf for the first time. They had been busy making movies, and making money as a by-product, but didn’t have time to spend it, until that day. Preparing in haste, they purchased all the necessary equipment on their way to a country club.
At the check-in counter, the starter told them, “I’m sorry, but you can’t play golf today.” Perplexed, they asked why not. They were all set to play after all, not to mention sacrificing their valuable time to be there. The starter explained the reason, ”Sorry, you can’t play today. There aren’t any caddies.”
They looked at each other. “It’s all right with us,” said one. “We’ll take a Buick. One car will do. It’s for one day, isn’t it?”
With no knowledge of playing golf, they didn’t know that they needed caddies to play golf. For them movie people, a Caddy meant a Cadillac like they all owned. The starter’s explanation sounded to the producers like, “We have run out of Cadillacs suitable for rich guys like you to play a round of golf.” So, one of the producers offered that they wouldn’t mind taking a Buick instead, though it’s pale in comparison to a Cadillac, and that one car would be enough because they would carpool.
