A man's father is very, very old, and the son can't afford very good treatment for him, so he's in a rather shabby, run-down nursing home. One day the son wins a lottery -- and the first thing he does is install his father in the best old age home that money can buy. On the first day the old man is sitting watching TV, and he starts to lean a little bit to one side. Right away a nurse runs over and gently straightens the old man. A little later he's eating dinner, and when he finishes, he begins to tip a little bit to one side. Another nurse runs over and gently pushes him upright again. The son visits his father later that evening and asks him how he's being treated. "It's a wonderful place, son," replies the father. "I really like it here, gourmet food, color TV's in every room, the service is unbelievable, there's just one little problem." "What's that, Dad?" "They won't let you fart."
