The price of balls

The young man-about-town enjoyed luxury but didn't always have the means to buy it, and so he huffily walked out of the Miami Beach hotel when he found out the charges for room, meals and golf privileges were $300 a day.

He registered across the street at an equally elegant hotel, where the rates were only $70. The following morning he went down to the hotel's golf course and asked Scotty, the pro, to sell him a couple of golf balls.

"Sure," said Scotty. "That'll be $25 apiece."

"What?" screamed the bachelor. "In the hotel across the street they only charge $1 a ball!"

"Naturally," replied the pro. "Over there they get you by the rooms."
