Some different help. Please.

Can someone explain to me what a "PGA Tour mandarin" is? Because I got absolutely NFC what the author of this article is trying to convey.

From the Chinese - "A powerful official or senior bureaucrat, especially one perceived as reactionary and secretive."

Its use refers to the people who are running the PGA Tour behind the scenes.

Probably used more in the UK than here.

I thought about this til my head hurt.
I learned this word in 1973 when I played this record until it was smoooooth.

This clip, I'll start it midway through the meal, is from the scene called The Last Supper (yeah, *that* one), and Jesus is disillusioned, angry, and disgusted with the foreknowledge of his imminent betrayal. First Peter gets called out, then Judas gets it with both barrels. At 5:18, Judas accuses Jesus with the epithet "a jaded mandarin", and man, is he hot about it.

My God, can these guys sing!

Sure, pin it on the black guy.
I saw this performed live in Philly, and was surprised how many Nuns were in the audience. Didn't see any of them toking though.
