Punishment for swearing

A vicar was playing golf with a friend who missed a three foot shot saying "dammit, missed the bugger." at which the vicar tutted.

At the next hole he missed again and said "dammit missed the bugger."

The vicar turned on him saying "if you swear again God will send down a thunderbolt and strike you down."

At the next hole John missed a two putt and cursed "dammit missed the bugger."

Seconds later the heavens opened, there was a loud clap of thunder and a bolt of lightning struck the vicar.

"Dammit, missed the bugger." God said.
