Midway through a game of golf one hot summer day, Harpo Marx and George Burns elected to finish the round without their shirts. Upon returning to the clubhouse, the were rather pointedly reminded of a rule forbidding members form playing topless.
"That's an outrage, " Burns protested. "We can go swimming on a public beach without a top. Why do we have to wear one here?" "Sorry," said the manager. "A rule is a rule."
The next day the pair reappeared on the course and played 18 holes wearing shirts as required. News of the pair's outrageous appearance, however, soon reached the manager, who intercepted the jokers on the 18 green, demanding an explanation.
"ou were right," Harpo declare. "The rules say you have to wear a shirt, but they don't say a word about wearing pants."
Common sense should prevail where different venues require or suggest what type of clothing should or should not be worn.
