~At the Nursing Home...

  1. a man took his elderly father to a nursing home to check it out. he sat him down on a sofa in the main aisleway and went to talk to the administrators. the old man started to tilt slowly toward the left. a doctor came by and said, "let me help you." the doc piled several pillows on the left side of the old man so he would stay upright. the old man started to tilt slowly to the right. the orderly noticed and put several more pillows on his right side to keep him upright. the old man started to lean forward when a nurse came by and piled several pillows in front of him. about this time the son returned. "well dad, isn't this a nice place?" the old man replied,"i guess it's ok, but they won't let me fart!"

    It's a commonly known fact Night Owl, that the tightness of your sphincter determines the pitch of your flatus. I myself can do a nice high pitched crescendo, (back away with those pillows, I'm busy talking here). My ex-husband was definitely an alto.

    And the moral is, if you are uptight, don't chill, or you will lower the tone?
