Today's news

In a new meaning to the phrase "water hazard" an Australian golf course has a family of sharks living in a water trap.

And in Florida, a legislator concerned about the unemployment issues facing people of below-average-height is trying to revive the bizarre sport of dwarf tossing.

A local brisbane course, I wonder if Greg Norman will play here, could be a real shark attack!

"You'll have to toss me... Don't tell the elf."

With such creative solutions coming out of our legislative bodies I can't understand why we are having difficulty in the economic arena. But let me put my creativity to use. Pop a legislator in the nose for 10 bucks a pop---Dow Jones Futures up big this AM

Mrs A - what a great idea. Greg would make great chum.

I'm not sure about the Logan river flooding story. I reckon a couple of blokes, with a few tinnies under their belts, decided to spice the game up a bit.

You put these two stories together...

Are you thinking of combining the 2 ideas and tossing dwarfs across the shark infested water hazard?

Extra points to MarcW for the LOTR quote.

I have to ask...what are players supposed to do if their golf ball goes into the water?

I was so looking forward to the dwarf tossing article, but alas, it isn't available anymore! Maybe I can find it in google's archives!

Vicki- it seems to be working now. Here's the full text link, if that helps.
