Joke of The Day

 An Avon lady was alone in an elevator when suddenly she had to fart. She promptly reached into her bag and sprayed the air with an Avon pine scented deodorizer.
Two floors later, a gentleman got on the elevator.
He began to sniff, and the Avon lady asked,
"Do you smell something?"
"Well, yes I do," he replied.
"What does it smell like?" she asked.
The bemused gentleman answered, "I'm not sure, but it kind of smells like someone shit under a Christmas tree."
