ONE WHO ACHIEVES THE DISTINCTION OF HOLDING A TITLE

The American Mastodon, while occasionally a quick little whipper-snapper, is often quite dumbfounded, literally, by his constant obtuseness. For instance, only today did he realize that "Titleist", a word gracing the covers of golf balls the world over, was a play on the word, titlist, and is meant to impart in the mind of the golfer the idea that he or she could, by using this brand's ball, someday attain the status of one who wins a title, that is, a titlist, or rather, a "Titleist". Why they felt as though they had to add an "e" still perplexes the AM, but to each his own, and more than that, to him all others'.

man, i'd really like to play some golf.

or just whack a couple of buckets of balls on the driving range. preferably the kind of driving range that features a rusted-out Chevy that's decomposing at about 350 yards straight out which you make bets on who's going to hit it first.
