Photo Pfun: That's Why They Call Hole 14 at Reston National Golf Course the -- Wait for It! -- the DRIVING RANGE

Secret Restonian operative "Mary Anne" sent us these exciting photos from hole 14 at Reston National Golf Course, which was the source of a bit of fun over the weekend... and not the usual, bourgeois, skip-out-of-work-a-bit-early, plaid-pants-wearing kind of fun, either. Behold!

Yes, that's a car on the golf course. A 4x4, even. Also, South Reston appears to have been the victim of some sort of sinister terrorist biochemical attack that left everything vaguely lavender in its wake. Oh, the humanity!

Somehow, the unknown driver managed to get the 4x4 stuck. On the golf course. How is that even possible?

A CLUE! Also, as Restonian operative "Mary Anne" notes, "nice guitar case."

We'll leave this scene of sad with one final, tragic footnote -- this crumpled can of Red Bull, left by the side of the car, a vertiable metaphor for shattered dreams and unfulfilled ambitions as the driver staggered away in search of -- what? a ball hit into the rough? Another 24 from the Soapstone 7-11? His caddy? We may never know.

  1. thanks for picture of the registration plate. Hopefully, the vehicle owner has already made arrangements to pay to repair the damage.

    Self-absorbed, entitled, narcissistic, drunken, punk jackasses!

  2. It's also possible the car was stolen and taken on a joyride. That happened to a neighbor's car a while back, and they never figured out who was responsible.

  4. Too bad it's not a certain compact Volkswagen. That would have been par-fect.

    Yes, and while we're all having fun making atrocious puns, let's not forget that in addition to a VW Golf other appropriate cars would have been a Ford T-bird or a Caddy.

  7. That lavender is definitely not DRB approved. What were they thinking?

  9. Is Ms.'don't need no suggestion boxes here' Leila Gordon going to wait for someone to be electrocuted before removing the electric cords powering the boom boxes at the RCC indoor pool?True it may add to our scientific knowledge to know whether the ground fault interrupter really will work.

  11. Hey, at least his knives are sharp.

  12. Are you saying that he's the sharpest knife in the drawer? Seems a bit on the dull side to me.

  13. I intend to speak out against the possible accidental electrocution of Reston Citizens even if not in the proper post!

  14. Makes sense. You're saying you help players with their slice.
