There are currently over 410 cartoons, with many more on the way. These are just a few of them.
In the great 1951 movie, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, an intergalactic planetary consortium— worried that the nuclear weapons proliferation on earth represents a threat to the entire universe— sends to our planet their best “persuaders,” Klaatu and Gort. K & G are tasked to convince earthlings to stop their escalating spiral of nuclear weapons, or risk obliteration by their bosses from far away. Unfortunately, Klaatu and Gort’s noble mission is derailed, once they perceive that it is more important to save the planet from Dr. G’s inept golf game.
Frankly, we too are pleased that modern-day Hollywood has expressed absolutely no interest in Dr. G’s desultory golf game, despite his caddy Odd Job’s prodigious movie pedigree. By the bye, Hollywood insiders report that Odd Job has finally had enough as Dr. G’s caddy and is about to declare his intention to take a sabbatical. Rumor has it that Dr. G has already lined up a replacement caddy, a bloke with an even more formidable place in Hollywood lore. Who could it be? Hint: he’s not of this world. Stay tuned…
No doubt James Bond would approve of Dr. G’s ability to redirect Odd Job’s lethal skill towards a more benign activity. As for Goldfinger, maybe not so much.
Despite the bizarre nature of golf’s practitioners, the game, itself, probably does conform to the laws of physics.
As the group approached the green to pick up Dr. G’s miraculous hole-in-one ball, an elated Dr. G expounded: “In golf, as in life, it’s vital to pick the right club for every shot."
Presumably, this cartoon will appeal mostly to those who are knowledgable about both golf and cinema. Also, in Dr. G’s grandiose world, “meticulous”
more than just rhymes with both “oblivious” and “ridiculous.”
Let’s be honest about it, some folks are just destined to over achieve.
As Dr. G’s volatile caddie, Odd Job, contemplates resignation (or who knows what else), he wonders if Dr. G teaches the grandkids equanimity, failure, or exasperation.
What the eternally optimistic and oblivious Dr. G really meant to say to his skeptical grandkids is: “…and putting FOR BIRDIE."
Occasionally, even the oblivious Dr. G gets it right: From any angle, all things in the universe are, indeed, pin high.
We all know that both in golf and in life, it’s the little putts/little things that count.
Without rationalizations, golf, like life, would be even more impossible.
Golf is like life, especially if you’re not very good at it.
Not even a legendary caddie can do much for Dr. G’s game.
Those who recall the classic 1964 movie, “Goldfinger,” might have the impression that the scuffle towards the end of the movie between Goldfinger’s iconic guardian, Odd Job, and James Bond resulted in Odd Job’s fatal electrocution. But that is not the case, at all. The truth is that the indestructible Odd Job survived the electrocution, went into seclusion for a time, took voice lessons, learned English; and just recently found himself hired by Dr. G to be Dr. G's caddie, chauffeur, body guard, and personal assistant.
