A family take their frail, elderly mother to a nursing home in Dublin and leaves her as planned, hoping she will be well cared for.

The next morning, the nurses bathe her, feed her a tasty breakfast including All Bran and some wheat toast. Then they settle her comfortably in a chair at the window, overlooking a lovely flower garden.

She seems happy and OK, but after a while she slowly starts to lean over sideways in her chair. Two attentive nurses immediately rush up to catch her and straighten her up.

Again she seems OK, but after a while she starts to tilt to the other side. The concerned nurses rush back and once more bring her back upright.

This goes on all morning.

In the afternoon the family arrives to see how th'ol' wan is adjusting in her new home.

"So Ma, how is't here? Are they treating you reet?" asks Seamus.

"It's pretty nice," she replies. "The foods OK, the gardens are lovely, but them feckers won't let me fart."
