Be Fore or After?

BUDDY:  Hey, Micah, how many golfers does it take to change a light bulb?

MICAH:  Why, are you thinking of playing golf in the dark?

BUDDY:  Of course not.  Jan would never buy me a set of golf clubs.

MICAH:  So why are you asking?

BUDDY:  It's just a simple question.  How many golfers does it take to change a light bulb?

MICAH:  Well, if you aren't going to play golf in the dark, what difference does it make?

BUDDY:  Just humor me.

MICAH:  Okay.  I don't know.

BUDDY:  Well, at least make a guess.

MICAH:  Are they changing the bulb before or after they've played a round of golf?

BUDDY:  Does it matter?

MICAH:  Yes.

BUDDY:  Okay, after they've played a round of golf.

MICAH:  One? 

BUDDY:  Why would you guess one?

MICAH:  Because I figure after the golfers have played 18 holes, they're tired and want to rest.  So they draw straws and the short guy loses and has to change the light bulb by himself.

BUDDY: *blinks rapidly*  Uh ... that makes sense but it isn't the right answer. 

MICAH:  So what do you think is the right answer?

BUDDY:  Fore!

MICAH:  Four?  *rubs chin with paw* Well, I guess that would work if the bulb is changed before the game.

BUDDY:  Why?

MICAH:  Don't golfers generally play in a foursome?  Well, everyone - even us furries - know golfers are a bit fanatical about the game, so if they haven't played yet, I would imagine the whole team would be scrambling to change the bulb so their game could commence.

BUDDY:  Not four, Micah, fore.  It's a golf term meaning "duck, you're in the path of a ball"!

MICAH:  It does? I guess the next time Jan yells, "I have four dog treats. Who wants one?" I'll have to remember to duck.
