I have a carefuly developed method I cal the GLARE. When that fails I sing the Whinnie the Pooh theme song never fails

Now that's the stuff of psychological warfare.

But seriously wouldn't it be fun to do this just to get the reactions ~snicker~

As men seem to be alone in their talent of farting at will, I resort to olfactory warfare of a different kind. The cheapest, loudest, most obnoxious (noxious) cologne you kind buy for $5 bucks. Guaranteed to grant you at least a 5 foot perimeter, and anyone getting closer than that will be subjected to watering eyes, gagging and respiratory distress. Winnie the Pooh is too mild, I go for the jugular with the Barney song.

Take out pictures of your kids or grandkids. Don't have any? Fake them, download them, borrow them from a friend. Talk on and on and on about them. Nobody gives 2 shits about them and they'll bail. If you have the misfortune to have someone try to show you theirs back, talk over them about why yours are better.
