    How many of you have fart fights with your BF or partner? I'm of course very guilty.

    I had to delete my original post. Your comment is just too easy to lampoon.

    This was a good laugh !!! No fart fights here, but my son started a habit of timely loud farts on his way out the door, with a raucus laugh which quite often brought mine in return. the Hell of it is he is now 34 and has three kids and the devil sitll gets a kick out of doing it. He's not a 'Windy' Marine though, he's puts a little 'wind in his sails' though in the Navy. Ha !!

    Interesting.

    In our family it was consider very ill mannered to pass wind in someone's presence (the word "fart" was considered vulgar and uneducated). One excuses oneself to the washroom, and uses the commode. [haughty sniff]

    My ex-wife one day said "in 14 years I never heard you fart!"

    But to my dad's side of the family, farting was a source of great hilarity, so my brothers and I regarded those cousins with some disdain.

    (I think I'm always afraid it wouldn't be just a fart. icon_lol.gif

    Better safe than sorry -- and I wear whities. icon_lol.gif

    An Army farting story: I was on the staff of the US Army Military Police School in 1981. One night at his home one of the other Captains in our division thought it would be funny if he ate a bunch of hardboiled eggs and drank lots of beer, which would cause him to fart the next morning in an office he shared with 4 other Captains. This was in retaliation for one of the other Officers having had a bad case of gas earlier that day that had made their office quite unpleasant.

    But this Captain overdid it, and next morning his farting was non-stop, and worse, it had a sickening sulphur smell to it that made the office unlivable. His immediate supervisor, a Lieutenant Colonel in a connecting office, could also smell it, and ordered him to knock it off. But the Captain said he couldn't stop.

    The Lt Col was furious, and ordered some Sergeants to move the Captain's desk physically out into the hallway, and close the door after him. I felt so sorry for the guy, he really looked humiliated sitting out there all by himself, like a schoolboy being punished, everyone snickering at him as they walked past.

    But the story doesn't end there. The Captain continued to fart, and now was stinking up the hallway, the smell permeating into other offices, including mine, and people were complaining. Finally the Lt Col ordered the Captain to go home, but made him take a day of personal leave from his 30 accrued a year we all got. Poor guy never got over that incident, and I understood his boss gave him a dreadful annual efficiency rating. All over some farts that got out of control.

    I was always said to be longer, louder and more ignitable.

    Genesee Cream Ale, White Castles and then scrambled eggs in the morning would do it up just fine.
