So, a friend* shared this with me. Can't imagine why she thought I'd be amused...
Okay, okay. I am amused. Fart references are inherently funny. Ask any ten-year-old boy.
No doubt we decorous (stop laughing!) women of a certain age are supposed to be above this kind of vulgarity. But (heh-heh, I said bu--never mind), seriously? Anything that provides a good laugh without hurting anyone's feelings is all right by me.
If the painting above is too subtle to inspire a raucous enough release for you, there's always createfarts.com, where you can not only customize your own personal expulsion, but you can also email it to a friend! Or a perhaps a cherished family member. Or to someone whose opinion differs from your own, like that agent or editor who didn't appreciate your genius.**
May your Hump Day be full of raucous expulsions! (Of laughter, people. Laughter.)
*Name withheld to protect her decorousness (decorosity?), though she may choose to reveal herself in the comments.
**Not really recommended. The publishing circle is relatively small, and word gets out.
A. Farts are hilarious!
B. I pretend not to enjoy fart jokes, but laugh on the inside.
C. Farts are a part of nature best ignored.
D. Discussing farts is offensive and I will never visit this blog again.
E. I'm choosing "E" because it doesn't contain that offensive word.
