A man and a woman, both strangers to one another, boarded a crowded transcontinental train and were assigned to the same sleeping car.
Although they were both a little embarrassed at first, they were very tired and fell asleep fairly quickly — he in the top bunk, and she in the lower one.
A little after midnight, the man woke up shivering. He reached down and gently shook the woman awake.
“I’m sorry to trouble you,” he said. “I was wondering whether you might reach over to the cabinet and hand me a blanket. It’s getting awfully chilly up here.”
“I have a better idea,” said the woman. “Just for tonight, let’s pretend we’re married.”
“Wow!” exclaimed the man. “That sounds like a great idea.”
“Fine,” replied the woman. “Then get your own stupid blanket!”
Two minutes later, the man farted.
