Is there a a group of smelly HAFfers in the <65 sector? Surely not? Yes <65 and explosive (verbally) but smelly???? Don’t see that as being an essential part of cantankerousness.

Hmm, csn be a side effect. A colleague had gut trouble which csused him to fart frequently, when asked if he had "irtitable bowel syndrome" he reckoned not. My comment was thst I certainly did, his bowel syndrome was making me irtitable.

Hey! What's with the discrimination of us not quite 65 YO grumpies?  I've worked hard at becoming a grumpy old man and now I'm pipped at the post...  Bah, humbug!

Hmm, some say that age is a matter of perception and temperament as chronology. "Old beyond his/her years" is a well worn cliché

And no offucers have been elected as yet - I only offered tge idea and asked for rules. Perhaps it will be a true collective, a perfect democracy, eqch equal to the other?

Naw . . .

I would like to point out that the "smelly" criteria in my proposed rule relates to "disposition", not body odor.  That's what makes an "Old Fart" - the disposition.  And 65 is clearly "old", where as younger than 65 is not necessarily old.  Over 65 and you have definitely rounded 3rd base.  Anyway, what's wrong with being arbitrary?  Therefore, I must continue to advocate for and insist upon adoption of my Rule 1.  If we can't get past membership, we are not going to get very far.

 :this: :geezer!:

65?  :notsure: I don't qualify...But...

Some of us are right at the start of the Post Midlife Crisis -Crisis, and between PMS and Premenopausal/ Menopausal, soon to be Postmenopausal/witch -stage.

Somewhere around there.

Is it the intensity of the grumpiness and how you use it that matters to the order or being 65 and over?  :eyebrow:

The order would benefit by accepting members who don't qualify for being too young...take Asmodean, for example, he is a young man, but deep down he's a Grumpy Old Fart and proud of it. I hope No one qualifies, as well.

You're all very special.

Bullshit!

You never let a person get a word in edgewise!
