Golf Balls

A man got on the bus with both of his front trouser pockets full of golf balls and
 sat down next to a beautiful girl. 
 The puzzled girl kept looking at him and his bulging pockets.
Finally, after many glances from her, he said, "It's golf balls."
She continued to look at him for a very long time, thinking deeply about what
he had said.
After several minutes, not being able to contain her curiosity any longer,
she asked, "Does it hurt as much as tennis elbow?"
