It was time for an elderly gentleman to be put into a nursing home, as his grown children could no longer care for him.
After a week, the children went to visit their father at the nursing home. During the visit, the father leaned to the right, and a nurse quickly came over and propped him up with a pillow. A little while later, he leaned to the left, and again a nurse came and propped him up with another pillow.
The man's children were amazed at how attentive the home seemed to be, and questioned their father on how he liked it there.
He responded, "I've been treated well, but I've got to tell you... they sure don't want you to fart here."
