A young man went to a house to pick up his blind date. The girl wasn’t quite ready, so her father invited the lad to sit on the couch and wait. Dad sat in his easy chair and proceeded to read his newspaper, while the family dog, Rover, jumped onto the couch and sniffed out the stranger.

Suddenly, the young man felt the urge to fart and didn’t know what to do, however, since the dog was nearby, he decided to squeak it out and feign innocence.

“Brrroough,” went the fart! Dad peered over his newspaper and said, “Rover! Get off that couch!”

The young man was relieved. Obviously, Dad thought Rover had done the deed. Soon, another fart rumbled in the young man’s guts, and he let it rip, assured that Rover would once again be blamed.

Sure enough, Dad peered over his newspaper and said more sharply, “Rover! I said get off the couch!”

Happily, the young man decided that he could fart whenever the urge arose and he let yet another one fly.

Finally, Dad threw down his newspaper in disgust and bellowed, “Rover! FOR GOD’S SAKE, GET OFF THAT COUCH BEFORE HE craps ON YOU!!!”
