Once upon a time there was this planet called Earth.
For some mysterious reason it blew up and disappeared. Scientist
throughout the universe could not solve the mystery as to why. This
is my reminition of what probably happened:
Throughout the world many of the modern countries had nuclear armaments.
The stockpiling and testing of them were frequently reported in the newspapers
of that time.
One day the leaders of all the countries decided that it was in
the best interest of all, that they put an end to the nuclear
arm proliferation. So each country sent their top generals to a
meeting in Geneva to work out a solution. All day long they negotiated
and debated as to how they could reach their goal of nuclear disarmament.
At the end of the day the only thing that they could agree on, was
that they were hungry and it was time to eat.
A great supper was prepared and spread before them. A variety of ethnic foods
was prepared which the generals hungrily feasted upon.
Then it happened. A large general upon finishing his meal gave
out a little fart. Now from his country of origin that was considered
a complimentary gesture, so in his mind it was totally acceptable
to do it, and he did. On the right hand side of him sat another
general and from his country of origin a fart was considered rude
and offensive. Upon hearing it, he became angry and told the general
not to do it again. The general that farted tried to explain his
position but it was to no avail because they spoke different languages.
Now it just happened that on the left hand side of the general that
originally farted sat another general, because of eating all the
different types of exotic foods he gave out a whopper of a fart.
All throughout the dinner assembly generals from the countries which
deemed it appropriate began to fart, thinking it was the right thing
to do. Well the original angry general said, "Enough is enough,"
and hit the original general that had farted. The hit general hit
back, in self-defence naturally. Well now the fight was really on.
Word got back to their respective countries about what happened
and the fighting spread. One atrocity after another occurred. The
fighting escalated into world nuclear confrontation.
So the demise of the planet Earth can be sourced back to that first
little fart. It's hard to believe that a little fart can blow up
a world, but as you can see, it can. So if you feel the urge to fart...
