February 18th is Fart Out Loud Day!
February 17, 2019 9:01 PM   Subscribe

Written by two sisters, Samantha (age 11) and Ali (age 9) from Colorado, “Fart Out Loud Day” is a funkalicious body-positivity anthem that gives everyone permission to let it out. (Farts previously)

From Story Pirates (previously). Some of you may prefer "All 8 Unicorns," written by Cece (age 4).

.....I'm assuming, too, that this is a sign that we're reaching the end of the poop month.

this is a sign that we're reaching the end of the poop month.

For Mr. Wallflower's sake I hope so.

Evidently Poop Month(s) is running on fumes at this point.

Call me a filthy *parp* bigot, but there are only so many days in a year and I feel like this could've *parp* bean folded in with e.g. Talk Like A Pirate Day. Yargh! *parp* *plankstand* etc.

My daughter is home sick from school and was very sad for a moment at the thought that she was missing this special day at school.

Oblig. "Love Actually" deleted subplot. Meet Emma Thompson's horrible son Bernard.

I spend about 94% of my life alone. Fart freedom is in no way an issue. But this sounds awesome. Rock on with your bad selves.

I presume March is phlegm month, so I'm expecting all of you to cough up some good posts then.

Personally, I'm looking forward to March. March is the month of vomit.

It is no coincidence that this is also my birthday.

This is awesome. I would take FOLD over a school shooting any day.

A friend's child was raised to believe that it is acceptable to fart or burp loudly and openly (also to chew with the mouth open, comment loudly and negatively on food and people's appearances, etc). This is not actually as freeing, body-positive and cute as folks might think and has considerably shifted me toward the body-negative, let's-all-repress-a-little side.

Seems appropriate that it's on President's Day in the US.

My cousin's sons had big grins in their first photos with their baby sister. We commented on how they had such happy, genuine smiles.

"The photographer told them they could say 'fart'" my cousin informed us.

Posts about vomit make me want to hurl. It'snot right.

Finally, a holiday everyone can get behind.

I've already got an analog device that synthesizes farts

One of the best things about an outside job is that you can fart as much as you like. As a famously farty person from a notoriously gassy family, the significance of this is not lost on me. Would I say that it was a major factor in my job choice? No. But it was a factor, for sure.
