This was in a book I had in junior high school, called The Bawdy Bedside Reader.

I took it to school and it made me very popular until it was confiscated.

Am I allowed a link to my own farting poem here? It's called Mushy Peas for Ninja Stealth Farts.

(Scroll down the linked page to find it.)

If you don't fart, you don't shit. If you don't shit, you die!

Seeing Mikado rhyming with barter reminds me of this.

These abide by the too-often neglected Rule of Limericks: must be dirty. It isn't just the scansion, it's the filth too.

You: in a lot of English or Scottish accents, or Australian, 'Mikado' would have a soft ending vowel. 'Mik-arder'.

There are three - no four! - fart-themed FP posts today. May I suggest we all take some of these before our next meal.

would it be extremely rude of me to self-promote the fact that I contributed a word to the lexicon?

Charming and all, but missing a canonical couplet, viz:

There was a young Royal Marine
Who tried to fart God Save The Queen.
But he reached the soprano
And out came the guano;
His britches weren't fit to be seen.

(Ref.)

beans beans the musical fruit
the more you eat the more you toot
the more you toot the better your means
so overthink a plate of beans

I'm sure you can look it up, but the art of farting (especially with the Brits, maybe the Germans as well) has a long history.
