Silent But Deadly

424DEC72-6FC0-48F1-A017-469FE9FFF995“Did you just fart?” Angela asked her boyfriend.

Chuck laughed. “Yeah,” he said. “Take a whiff.”

“That’s not funny, Chuck,” Angela said. “Farting in public is a horrible trait. And I especially object to you farting in front of me.”

“Don’t be so dense,” Chuck said. “Everyone farts and it’s much healthier to let it out than to try to hold it in. It’s a natural bodily function.”

“It’s bizarre is what it is,” Angela said. “I know you think you have a magnetic personality, but that magnetism you so highly prize is not enough to overcome your silent but very deadly farts.”

“Stop being so uptight,” Chuck said. “Go ahead, Angie, let one rip. You’ll feel better.”

Angela looked at Chuck and said, “Fine.” And then she leaned a little to her left, slightly lifted one butt cheek off the couch cushion, and did, indeed, let one rip.

Chuck took a deep breath, grimaced, and said, “You were right, Angie. Please don’t ever do that again in my presence.”

    Best farting contest? See the clip after the final credits on A Knight’s Tale. It will have you in fits (and farts). 🙂

    There’s a saying, if one is in their ‘dotage’ (whatever age you may assign that as…) to NEVER, EVER trust a fart. Good advice. I’m glad Angela didn’t come to regret her spontaneous outburst…
