An old married couple no sooner hit the pillows when the old man passes gas and says, ā€œSeven point.ā€

His wife rolls over and says, ā€œWhat in the world was that?ā€ The old man replied, ā€œItā€™s fart football.ā€

A few minutes later his wife lets one go and says, ā€œTouchdown, tie scoreā€¦.ā€

After about five minutes the old man lets another one go and says, ā€œAha! Iā€™m ahead 14 to 7.ā€

Not to be outdone, the wife rips out another one and says, ā€œTouchdown, tie score.ā€

Five seconds go by and she lets out a little squeaker and says, ā€œField goal, I lead 17 to 14.ā€

Now the pressure is on for the old man. He refuses to be beaten by a woman, so he strains real hard.

Since defeat is totally unacceptable, he gives it everything heā€™s got, and accidentally poops the bed.

The wife says, ā€œWhat the heck was that?ā€

The old man says, ā€œHalf time, switch sides!ā€

Fifty-one years ago, Herman James, a North Carolina mountain man was drafted by the Army. On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb. That afternoon, the Army barber shaved off all of his hair. On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That afternoon, the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth. On the third day, the Army issued him a jock strap. The Army has been looking for Herman for fifty-one years.
