I was reading a post by Mommy Brained and was reminded of this story that I had to tell you all before I forget and have to leave work for the weekend.

Back in 2004-2005, pre-Erflet, Erf and I were strolling around our local Target. We were roaming the toy aisle due to my obsession with Barbies and Erf's obsession with... toys.
Some Star Wars flick had just come out and they had half an aisle dedicated the damned toys... But one toy will stick with me.
Fortune-telling Yoda. He looked kinda like this.
We, being mature Ah-Dults asked him all sorts of stupid questions.
Then, I had a stroke of sheer brilliance, similar to the stroke of brilliance I had when I bought our remote-control fart machine.
Yes, we had one. No, we don't have it anymore. I'll get to that later.
I asked Yoda, "Does Erf have a big penis?" (Not that I didn't already know. I was an Ah-Dult.)
Yoda, calmly and cooly, responds:
"Do not think; feel. Use the force you will."
I was on the floor laughing within 1/27th of a second.
Now, as for the fart machine... I bought it for both of us, and we attended a movie with a friend of ours and her boyfriend. I took the machine into the restroom so we could test it through walls.
Sure as shit, it did. I was in the restroom laughing while I peed, and my pocket was farting. It was fabulous.
Then, they set it off right as we walked past concessions. It was the loudest one EVER. And it was unquestionably funny, because all the employees were laughing at me.
I've also walked around the mall with it in my back pocket, and given someone else the remote. It's funny to walk through higher end retailers and watch the stuck-up snobs buying their Lancome and Estee Lauder react to my fart machine.
Then one day around 4 am, we woke up to farting noises. Constant, streaming farting. Either the fart machine was going off or Erf had something really wrong with him.
Nope. The fart machine was POSSESSED. We hit the off button repeatedly, nothing. It just kept going and going. It was the Energizer Bunny of Fart Machines!!!
We finally took the batteries out because... Obviously. It was 4 am, and we had just gone to bed two hours beforehand. Fuckin' fart machine.
