A woman consulted a doctor, explaining that for many years she
sufferred from excessive
flatulance, but there was never any sound or smell so she had done
nothing about it until
now. So the Dr. took down all of her medical history,a process that
took quite a while. At
the end, the woman says, "You see, Dr Smyth while I've been sitting
here talking to you
I've broken wind five times, but there's no sound and no smell." At
this point, the Dr.
scribbled something on a pad, ripped off a sheet and handed it to the
this?" she asked, "some pills?" "No", replied Dr Smyth, "that is a
prescription for a
hearing aid: come in next week, and we'll operate on your nose."
