"No one wants a fart-themed surprise sneaking up on her."

"Not everyone is so shy about queefing. Some people are downright enthusiastic about it. How else can we explain things like queef fetish forums, queef championships and queef-themed pornography? In her 2013 song, 'Queef,' Awkwafina incorporates the proud line, 'You need to embrace your queefing. You can’t be scared of it anymore. It’s gonna save the world.'"

let it go?

Who Farts? And Who Cares? "Sociologists Martin Weinberg and Colin Williams wanted to know. They and their team interviewed 172 college students about their habits and concerns about farting and pooping. They published their results in an article called Fecal Matters. They discovered that everybody farts and everybody cares, but not everyone cares all the time or equally." [more inside]

Now that's what I call terrorism

A thermal image of a fart... is it science? Is it art? The TSA will do its part, to document each airport fart.

Something silly, juvenile, unnecessary and probably dangerous.

Happy Friday (SLYT) I guess this is the "grown-up" version of sticking playing cards in the spokes of your bike.

Peter Molyneux picks his favourite iPhone fart app

"Peter Molyneux has had a long and storied career. As the creator of Populous, Black & White, Fable, and the recent iPhone experiment Curiosity, he's been no stranger to ambitious concepts throughout his 30-year history in the industry. I had a chance to sit down with Peter at E3 this year, and picked his brain about three of the top fart apps on the app store."

That which we call a fart by any other name would smell as acrid

[NSFW, except in the can] The Barn Owl Fart - A familiarity with owl calls is helpful in identifying this fart. Almost any morning if you get up just before daybreak you can hear one of these birds talking to himself. It's a sort of a crazy laugh, particularly the way it ends. If you hear a fart that has about eight notes in it, ending on a couple of down notes, and it sounds maniacal, you have heard the rare Barn Owl Fart. [more inside]

"What would appear to be a mere biological necessity creates a scandal"

You: a man with incredibly bad gas. Location: A busy street. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: Fart without the man next to you noticing. Because scatological humor is timeless.

He threw caution to the wind.

An international manhunt is under way seeking the man who expressed his displeasure of Polish president Lech Kaczynski by forcefully expelling intestinal gas. No word on whether he did another for the president's twin brother, nor whether he will attempt arson by lighting these farts on fire.

a mighty wind

The Fart Heard Round the World. An extraordinary performer, who farted for his living for 20 years, Le Pétomane (YouTube) was the highest paid stage artist of his time in 1897 France. He farted songs, impressions of people, the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and farm animals, among other things. The management of Moulin Rouge had to hire nurses to help members of the audience who passed out laughing so hard. He was pusued for many years by an obsessed doctor. Two movies were made about his life in English, the 1979 short film (33 minutes) of Le Pétomane (Google video) and in 2005 Parti Avec Le Vent, which translates as Gone With the Wind. [more]

Do it for someone you love.

Flatulence free legumes or, a more to the point headline. Although I thought ABC news might be a bit more scientific in their phrasing. Nope.

Prithee sirrah, pull the finger

Sometimes science has to take a back seat to art. Mark Twain's contribution to the fart joke was '1601 Conversation As it was by the Social Fireside in the Time of the Tudors', a heart-warming tale of Elizabethan intrigue and fart queens.

Pull my finger

Pull my finger! Sometimes the simplest things bring the greatest joy (to simpleton like me, anyway.) If somehow you get bored with that, you can play with this guy, or just watch some nice clouds. If you don't like any of these, then I am very, very sorry (Flash.)

Pass gas, go to jail. Well, not really, but I had to find something to keep this idea going.
