Small Businessman Conducts Business On Miniature Golf Course

BURLINGTON, VT—Independent entrepreneur Phil Beenes secured yet another low-three-figure business contract for his four-person commercial cleaning proprietorship on the same miniature golf course where he seals most of his biggest deals, Beenes announced Monday.

"And I'm not above purposefully missing the sphinx's mouth or hitting the windmill blade if it means closing a deal to wash deli aprons. I just do what I have to do." Beenes added that he also wasn't opposed to the presence of "a little social lubricant," often finding it beneficial to hash out the fine print over a round of soft drinks.
