Pull our finger, Soda Jerks! Instead of pretending fooling people is comedy this April Fools we’re celebrating the gross that makes you laugh: flatulence! Why we fart, why it smells, and faaaaaarts innnnn spaaaaace! Then fart history with Japanese Fart Scrolls, Benjamin Franklin’s demand for fart science, professional flatulists and fartistes, Adolf Hitler’s other offensive gas, and is that a soviet sub or is something farting in the ocean?
In the news we’ll look at a few people fired for farting on-the-job, fart-lighting injuries, the return of “Shit Dick”, and a flatulence-caused stabbing. Then we select some personal favorites and new weird finds in flatulence pop culture.
Plus: The world’s oldest known joke!
