    Stop beating around the G*DD**N bush and tell them straight-up.

    Ask them if they would like to have a farting contest.

    Say it directly.
    Be polite and assertive.
    E.g., "I'm tired and I need you to leave now so that I can get some sleep."
    Use the broken record technique ( exact repetition) until they start to leave.
    Don't respond if they try to engage you in further conversation.
    Escort them to your door, gate or their car.
    Say a polite and (not overly) friendly good-bye.

    If they query it sometime later, stand your ground.

    Stop hinting. Speak plainly.
