An old man goes to see a doctor and asks about his enigmatic farts. He took the prescribed pills and next week he is told a very unexpected thing by the doctor.

A 65 years old grandpa goes to the doctor and says :

“Doctor I have this problem with gas, but it really doesn’t bother me too much.

My farts never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, I’ve farted at least 20 times since I’ve been here in your office.

You didn’t know I was farting because they don’t smell and are silent.

The doctor says,”I see, take these pills and come back to see me next week.”


The next week the grandpa comes back.

“Doctor,” He says, “I don’t know what the heck you gave me, but now my farts…although still silent…stink terribly.”

The doctor says,”Good !!! Now that we’ve cleared up your sinuses, let’s work on your hearing.”

The issue is not about the farts; it’s about the grandpa himself. When we don’t understand something, we might want to wonder about the abilities of ourselves first, not about the matter itself.
