**A woman in a jewelry store farts while bending over to look at a beautiful diamond ring. She looks around, embarrassed, and sees the salesman standing behind her. Totally professional, he says, “Good day, ma’am. How may I help you?” Hoping that maybe he hadn’t heard her “accident” she asks “Sir, what’s the price of this lovely ring?” He answers, “Ma’am, if you farted just looking at it, you’re gonna sh!t when I tell you the price!”

** A little girl was sitting next to her grandfather as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time she would take her eyes off the book reach up and touch his wrinkled cheek. She would touch her own cheek after she touched his. After a little while of thinking, she asked, “Grandpa, did God make you?” He looked at her and said, “Yes, sweetheart, God made me a long time ago.” She paused for a few seconds and then asked, “Grandpa, did God make me too?” He replied, “yes, indeed pumpkin, God made you just a little while ago.” Feeling their respective faces again, she whispered to him, “God’s getting better at it, isn’t he?”
