[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]

"Me, I fart loud - I can't be a hypocrite. I get these parts, but I never get to play 'em because I fart out loud. Why can't we all fart together? Let thy arse make wind!"
It is my pleasure
the late, great Timothy Carey
, possibly the weirdest
of all Hollywood character actors. A follower of Salvador Dalí
and Le Pétomane
, Carey was a Method actor
who was pals with John Cassavetes
, a muse of sorts for Stanley Kubrick
, alleged discoverer of both Frank Zappa
and Ray Dennis Steckler
, and one of the dedicatees of Reservoir Dogs
. Not only that, he wrote, directed, and starred in one of the all-time strangest American films
, The World's Greatest Sinner
, and wrote and directed the world's only Dalí-inspired play about death by flatulence.
Against all odds, Timothy Carey has a website
, and if you're interested, you can buy his movies, posters, and other odds 'n' ends
(warning: doesn't appear to have been updated particularly recently).
Truly, in the words of his tombstone
, "A Super Nova of Original Thespian Talent."

(FPA: First Post Alert) A century or so ago, there lived a French baker with a most prodigious talent. He was also one of the Moulin Rouge's most successful performers (sorry about that, Nicole Kidman). In 1974, Mel Brooks gave him a sly homage in Blazing Saddles
that blew over the heads of most theatregoers. And now, sadly, his fame and talent has been mostly forgotten to the ages. His name was Joseph Pujol, aka Le Petomane ("The Fartiste"), and in opposition to today's world of increasingly strict decency standards (and promotion of the unmanly pimpf
lifestyle), the legend of this bellowing* blowhard deserves to live on.

"Congratulations, you have created A Long, Swampy Wet Fart that was Barely Noticable. You can email your fart to a friend, or make a new fart. " Doesn't get any better than this.
