Yes, it all happened in Australia, where playing golf in a mankini causes no end of controversy. This story is all over the news down there.

And I apologize for not warning you earlier about clicking on the link above. I wish someone had warned me.

    What the hell, man. What. The. HELL. Australians are the least civilized people on the plane, this is clear.

      Well, everybody gets a little uncivil after a long flight….

        I can get as uncivil as the next bloke but that never involves “mankini’s”. I dare say a chap’d have to lose a bet to be caught alive in that rig.
