Today, I accidentally let a huge one rip while tending to an older patient at the nursing home where I work. The patient passed away shortly thereafter. Coincidence? FML

HA. Austin Powers.


Gotta love the spongebob references in this post

hope you get hit by a mad cow

i think god was more involved in this then that lol

"It" was a person. Not a thing a person. I get that this is funny. which is is. But if you're referring to the one who passed away please use the correct term.

It must be an accent thing. It's actually spelled "than".

Why does everyone assume OP(me) is a male?

Silent, but deadly.

Thats horrible.

Yea, I feel sorry for the old fart that died.

That comment with your username is priceless.

Oh my god thats brilliant

"let a huge one rip" doesn't sound silent.

Such an appropriate comment ?

taking silent but deadly to a new level

Well actually I believe he just brought it to the orignial level

"I'd rather die than have to smell your horrendous farts"

Talk about deadly gas.

R.I.P with OP's rip :(

You could be a super villain! Dr Flatulence!

There are better villain names for that power. The Gas Mask, Silent Knight, Super Pooper, or Mister Skids just to name a few

The ShartBreak Kid?

shouldnt it be Master Skids?

The shitanator

You just did not.... XD X.X *dead*

Methane poisoning. A well known killer of the elderly and infirm. A good job they don't have a canary as a pet or it would have died too.

just wow innapprops man

Yes. Coincidence. Maybe have a bit of respect for the patient who died, instead of posting fart jokes about the circumstances of their death on the internet.

Took this one a little to personal.

Really? A person just died, and he decided to make a fart joke about it. That was probably someone's spouse, parent or grandparent. There's a lot of joking material in hospitals or nursing homes, but death shouldn't be one of them.

I don't think you're fit to be on FML...

No, he has a point. I'm sure that the family and friends of this poor old man suddenly feel the painful stabbing at their hearts of an Internet fart joke. Even though it's completely anonymous, the effects are still there. "What is it mother?" "The FML community isn't respecting my father's death! I can just feel it!"

"Oh-- No sorry, that was just me, mother. I thought you wouldn't smell it."

I'm with 11, death shouldn't be joked about. Thumb me down all you want.

Fart joke? I think OP felt horrible about farting and that it may have been the cause of the patient/resident's death, hence why OP posted it on FML. FML is where people generally go to express FMLs, not jokes, and then you have the FML community to crack the jokes.

Got news for you #65; health care professionals make all sorts of inappropriate jokes, all the time. It's how we deal with looking disease and death in the face on a daily basis, while maintaining our sanity. We just don't usually make them around civilians , because many of you don't understand where it's coming from. Anyone who would joke around like that in front of patients or families doesn't belong in healthcare, but said in the break room? At the end of a long, hard shift? Much hysterical laughter.

They were in a nursing home. That's usually end of life care. I'm sure the family has already prepared for death as a possibility.

my grandpa always made jokes about dying, at 80 years old. one of the nurses asked how he was doing and he said "for a second i thought i was gonna make it!" so anyone crying boo needs to get the stick out of their ass, death is an inevitability, whats wrong with making a joke of it once in awhile?

#11 you've got to have a sense of humor on this site, or might as well delete your account if you get offended that easily

When you are working in an inpatient healthcare setting, you NEED to be able to find the funny side of things or else you're going to go crazy. I'm sure OP shed a few tears for the patient and their family. The postmortem care should be done respectfully but there is no harm in making a light farted, er... I mean hearted, joke between friends, coworkers, or anonymous people on FML.
