The Crepitation Contest


Last Friday, fellow blogger and pleasantly-twisted commentator Angel published a post titled "Humor About Flatulence." Yes, strange as it may seem to those of you who live in other parts of the world, we Americans are fond of making jokes about flatulence or, to use the more polite and precise medical term, farting. You can even find lots of apps for your smart phone that will produce the degree of flatulent noise desired: here are some for your iPhone or your Android device. And if you're a fan of the smash hit television series NCIS, you are familiar with the doll owned by goth forensic scientist Abby Scuitto - Bert the Farting Hippo.

But all other commentary about flatulence aside, if you have not heard the famous Crepitation Contest, you don't know fart-all about the topic ...



My father told us about this for years, and we never believed it actually existed until, many years ago, I found it on a CD advertised in a catalog called "Things You Never Knew Existed." Today, you can find it on YouTube and, as a CD or downloadable mp3, at Amazon.com. 

Go ahead and break that wind, cut that cheese, airbrush those boxers, and play the o-ring oboe*. Just do it somewhere else.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

* You can find anything on the Internet ... including this exhaustive list of euphemisms for farting.

Bilbo, that is marvelous! I never heard that before! Clearly, I'm a neophyte when it comes to the anal trombone. I noticed that "pop tart" is a euphemism for a fart. Should I change my screen name?

Embarrassment has no bounds until you pass gas before a class........

I can blame it on the tacos.

Great find, Bilbo! I as at a swim meet for my grandson, and the boys were making noises with their underarms, making fart sounds.

When Angel did her post the first thing I thought about was, 'OH NO, HE SHIT'. Glad you found this.

Thank you, Bilbo, for sharing that!
