    A little old lady goes to the doctors and says, "Doctor, I have this problem with gas, but it doesn't bother me too much. When I pass gas, it doesn't smell, and its always quiet. But, I've been doing it too often."

    The doctor asked her to explain more and the old lady said, "In fact, I passed gas at least 20 times since I've been in your oiffice and you probably didn't know I was doing it, because it's odorless and silent."

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

    She left and returned the following week. "Doctor," she said, "I don't know what the heck you gave me, the gas is still silent...but it stinks terribly."

    The doctor said, "Good! Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's work on your hearing."
