Check me out!
I’m not a big golf fan but I was glad to hear that the British Army have built a crazy golf course in Iraq. What an idea! Peace and diplomacy achieved through the use of the common language and bond of playing crazy golf together. The oh so playable magic or astro turf, tunnels, slopes, twists and stupid themes coupled with a small white ball. If only Columbus or Cortez or William Wallace had possessed the foresight to bring the gift of crazy golf to the countries they sought to conquer or defend. No cheap beads and trinkets for the indigenous people, no insulting or harmful religions, no foreign germs and diseases, no political heavy-handedness, no exploitation or capitalistic greed. Just the honest putt and poke of a simple game of crazy golf. If we are to learn anything...
