The Mature Man

I was having a conversation with my 21 year old son and 15 year old daughter today on our drive home. We were listening to a radio program on which a male Dejay was going into apoplexy from laughing over something that was probably very immature and moronic to most women. My daughter made some comment about why not only the Dejay. but every other male in the studio seemed to be laughing moronically over this bit of silliness.

My response to her is that the human male, no matter how mature he may appear on the outside has the capacity at some deep dark level to revert at a moment's notice to the maturity level of a 16 year old who just told a fart joke to his friends. I have yet to see any man I know not have moments when this is not true. Deep down inside of every man is a sniveling little 16 year old moron waiting to laugh at a Farrelly Brothers movie, or the Blue Collar comedy Tour.

I am not trying to be a snob here, I admit that I too laugh at the Blue Collar Comedy,( but not so much the Farrelly Brothers). And, as much as I get annoyed at the fact that my amazingly together, mature, devoted spouse, mrangelmeg can descend more quickly than a crippled airliner into the depths of moronic humor at the sound of a burp, I would never want that part of his personality to be removed, because that too makes him the man that I love.

It is just a constant reminder that lurking in the depths of every man is a moronic teen ready to spring a fart joke on the party. Look out ladies, he's there in your man, waiting to come out, don't be shocked when he finally arrives on the scene. Just roll your eyes and love him all the more for the complex creature God created him to be.

OK, so it was a bad day at the office when we discovered that www.create-a-fart.com had disappeared from the Internet, but I have never sniveled, nor do I associate with snivelers.
