Four men were playing a round of golf one day at their local golf club.
Three of them headed off to the first tee, while the fourth went into the clubhouse to take care of the pre-game drinks bill.
The three men started talking, and as men so often do, began bragging about their sons.
The first man told the others, “my son is a homebuilder, and he is so successful that he gave a friend a new home for free.”
The second man said, “My son started out as a car salesman, and now he owns a multi-line dealership. He’s so successful that he gave a friend a new Mercedes, fully loaded too.”
The third man, not wanting to be outdone, bragged, “My son is a stockbroker and he’s doing so well that he gave his friend an entire stock portfolio.”
The fourth man joined them on the tee a few minutes later, having taken care of the bill.
The first man mentioned to him, “We were just talking about our sons. How is yours doing?”
The fourth man replied, “Well, my son is gay, and dances in a gay bar. I’m not totally thrilled about this, but he must be doing well. His last three boyfriends gave him a house, a brand new Mercedes, and a stock portfolio.
Which just goes to show that sometimes it’s good to brag about your kids, and sometimes it’s not…
