One night a man was sitting on a couch eating peanuts, while he was in the middle of tossing one, his wife asked him a question and as he turned his head the peanut landed right in his ear. He tried to get it out but he only succeeded in pushing it deeper and deeper. They were finally about to give up and go to the hospital when the daughter came home from a date. Her date said to her father "please sit down and relax", he then proceeds to stick his finger up in the man's nostrils and instruct to him to close his mouth and blow. Sure enough the peanut popped right out. The daughter took her date into the kitchen to get some dessert as a reward. The wife turns to the husband and said, isn't he so smart? what do you think he will be when he grows up? The father replied, well, from the smell of his fingers, our son-in-law.
