A serious study in the art and science of farting...

    Laugh if you will. Or fart if you must

    And this:

    Consider the sad fate of Pu Sao of the Tikopia in Polynesia, who was so overcome with shame after farting in the presence of the chief that he committed suicide by climbing a palm tree and impaling himself through the rectum with a sharply pointed branch. Sanctions are less severe among the Chagga of Tanzania, but feminists have a lot of work to do there. If a husband breaks wind, the wife must pretend that it was really she who discharged, and she must submit to scolding about it. Failure to accept responsibility can cost the negligent wife three barrels of beer.

    Three barrels of beer? Works for me as long as it's not Coors Light.

    Based on the thread starter and the title, I was sure this would be about Canadian politics.

    Le Pétomane was also the governor who appointed Sheriff Bart and sent him to help the good people of Rock Ridge.

    Le Petomane translates to English as Fartomaniac.
