Using orphans as yardage markers on public golf courses


“The joke that cemented my relationship with Letterman. I actually approached him because I saw him at the Comedy Store. He’s talking about editorials and local newspapers..I can’t remember the setup. He said, ‘We are diametrically opposed to using orphans as yardage markers on public golf courses.’ I just liked the phraseology of that. Hearing comedians doing a certain routine. It’s like hearing a song with a lyric that I like.” – Jay Leno on David Letterman, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee
