Displaying his characteristic ill manners and bad taste,

Brad attempted to put their guests at ease

with the old “who farted?” cliché.

Brad blamed Janet,

Janet blamed Brad, while

both knew it was

one of the houseguests.

As an encore he’d tried a couple of stupid elephant jokes:

What Do You Call A Passenger Plane Shaped Like An Elephant?

A Dumbo jet!

and

What game should you never play with an elephant?

Squash!

Not to be outdone,

Janet followed with the faux pas

of serving circus peanuts.

Discomfited, the family

packed-up their trunks,

emitted a collective haze of putrescence—

and trundled back to

The Jungle.
