Do you smell gas? :bomb: Angie doesn't either ;)

We were talking last night and discovered that since I started my "better choices" journey, almost 2 months ago, I haven't been :faint: stinkn' :faint: Angie out of the house!

She truly appreciates that ;)

As for me...I kinda miss it :( ......I had such :devil: power! :devil:

Yeah, DH likes to do it in bed and then throw the covers over my head. Those men DO hold too much power with their farts.

You know what's funny? My dad used to do the cover thing to my mom. I remember her screams! ;) When hubby did it the first time, I was like, crap, I did marry someone just like my dad!

and why not a farts thread? we can have a britney spears thread. ;)

LIZZIE ~I swear if there was a farts thread ALL of my in-laws would join in. I told Angie once that everytime we get together with her family FARTS come up. She said no they don't...well I told her to wait and see...guess what? I am so right!! EVERY TIME!

She came home from her mom's a few months ago with boxers for me that were Monty Python (one of her family favorites) that said "I fart in your direction" on the back of them!!

Angie here-
I spent many years dealing with this "problem". Imagine waking in the middle of the night to this horrible stench, only to see a green fog hovering over the bed! :yikes::yikes:
Whenever I wanted my revenge, I would just eat a lot of Hershey's chocolate and that would do the trick.
I do have to say, it's been pretty nice not having the green fog hovering over my at night!!! :dizzy:

:D I can totally relate to this thread topic; and Lizzy, you are so right; except that I say, "PUT A CORK IN IT, PAL!" ;)

My DH does it all; blaming the dogs, the flies, the invisible mouse; me ~ you name it; just not himself, of course! You gotta have a sense of humor in this life; esp in marriage ...

My DH even has a hat that says on the front "OLD FART" ... I told him that I'm gonna have to get one made saying, "OLD FART'S WIFE" to match ~ LOL!

ANGIE ~ I here ya on the green fog ... some nights, I need a gas mask!

My DH is addicted to toasted peanut butter sandwiches; I think that's the culprit ... so, what's in your gasless diet regime, GARY???

What IS it with men and farting? I remember I dated this guy a few years ago... he got pretty comfortable around me... and then any time I spent the night, I'd wake up to him farting! He said, "It's morning thunder. All guys get it." Gross!

My dad also rips big, loud farts all the time, but all dads do, right? Isn't it a prerequisite?

That's one nice thing about being in a relationship with another woman - there's no massive amount of farting involved ;) HOWEVER, because she believes girls don't fart, I have been the one known to blame it on the dog!

Oh, that's awesome! My husband should have some of those. He's lactose intolerant and he eats cheese for dinner even though he KNOWS he will have gas and have to sleep downstairs on the couch, otherwise he wakes me up lettin' em rip!

I'm am laughing so hard reading this thread I have tears running down my face. :rofl:

When my husband and I were on 2nd or 3rd date, we had been drinking a little, when he farted in front of the fireplace in my living room. So romantic. When I commented on it, he replied something like "I can't date you if I can't fart in front of you." Been doing it ever since. He also told me his farts didn't stink until he married me. :rolleyes:
My oldest daughter gets upset when anyone in the family farts. She denies ever passing gas & I tell her that's not normal. If she ever has surgery, we will never feed you because you have to pass gas to get real food. It's how we tell that your intestines are functioning normal after surgery. We tell patients it's the only time you'll get applauded for farting.

That^^is tooooo funny!!!

It has actually been the other way around for me.

Since I started eating right, I mean really eating right, I have become the most gas-e person on the planet.:dizzy: And that don't all smell like roses!:p I live alone so at night no one has to suffer except Precious, my only chog (child/dog).;)

I'm with everyone who said that since STARTING the healthy eating, MORE gas happens! I've made the girlfriend leave the room on several occasions :o I try not to fart around her (or anyone), but holding it back is just UNCOMFORTABLE and we've been together 2.5 years... like murphmitch's husband, I also can't date anyone who I can't fart around... well, not in a long term way, anyway! ;) and trooworld, my morning thunder guy was lactose intolerant also (not severely, he told me), but he still ate ice cream and cheese. *pukey face* His lactose farts were LOUD AND PUTRID!

I also had a science teacher who would fart then simultaneously kick the trash can!

hmmm "wonders if i'm a guy in a past life" i swear DH always laughs at me and calls me his "lil tooting machine". Hmmmm and i usually blame it on the dog...so maybe i was a man in a past life????? oh well.. DH loves me anyways. I don't have too bad of a gas issue right now, but when i did WW last year, not sure why, but i swear i got more gassy???? ah oh well..we all need to toot....who cares if we are destroying the ozone with our noxious fumes LMAO

Angies dad and my grandma always said "barking spiders"

Actually, I bring the shame to an all-time low...I blame mine on the kids. :o It was easier when Kyle was a baby but I can't get away with it anymore. I try the dog, but pretty much, everyone in the house knows I inherited my dad's gas gene and that if there's a floating biscuit in the room, its probably mine.

My husband has IBS I swear - almost everything he eats upsets him (he'll get it checked out once he's stateside). So h keeps the bed warm when it's cold - but come on I know someone else has a spouse that does this one...

he would fart in bed then lift the covers and fan it up towards us and laugh hysterically as i gagged and fell out of bed. HAHA, sad but I sort of miss that now!

Cakses: My best friend when I was a teenager used to do that to me when we'd have sleepovers. Only she'd put the covers right over my head! She's WAY worse than I am and I accredit her to teaching me to be 'anally expressive'.

Gary: That would be TOO funny with that picture of Kyle! And, to his credit, he's following in my footsteps, only, like most boys, he's VERY proud of his little toots. And he usually likes to be sitting on someone's lap when they happen.

This IS a funny thread! With the five kids, especially three boys, farting is a regular CONTEST here! And unlike most of your husbands and GARY, my dh thinks it is MAJORLY disgusting! And with my healthy eating plan, I have to admit that I am MORE gassy than normal so I get in trouble from DH just like the kids do! :rofl: He says, "If you have to be disgusting go in the bathroom!" :rofl:

This thread is truly cracking me up!!! Sad to say, but I guess it's something we all relate to! I actually bought my husband two books last year from Amazon, sort of as a joke: Fart Proudly - believe it or not, this one is by Ben Franklin (a collection of some of his satirical essays). One of the essays is a tongue in cheek call for some sort of invention that will "perfume" the smell of our "wind." He goes on and on describing how useful and popular this would be. Funny. The other is something like The History of Farting. DH was glad to hear that the average HEALTHY person farts about 15 times per day; in other words, it's healthy to pass some gas each day. I forget what the record is, but it's way more than 15!

Night - Funny about your girlfriend claiming to have never farted... that's my sister. She's 37 now and she's finally dropped her front, but for YEARS she maintained that she had never farted! yeah, right!

I also died laughing at the teacher who farted and kicked the trash can at the same time. Hilarious!! My sister actually dropped her front when her first pregnancy made her extremely and uncomfortably gassy; she was teaching first grade at the time. I asked her what she did while she was at school, and she said she just let them rip because the first graders apparently fart all the time anyway. They thought nothing of it. She said at most they might giggle and say "Someone tooted" but they all (she and the 6 year olds) just farted the day away.

We also have a teacher at our school (male) who has told me before that if he has a particularly obnoxious or irritating student, he will casually, as he is circulating around the room, pause by the student's desk (or worse - perch on the side of it), and let a ripe but silent fart rip and then casually walk away, leaving the class to speculate as to which student did it! Of course, usually the annoying student gets the blame.

I know that on days when I'm having trouble myself (yeah, I'm with ya'll on the healthy eating and fiber), it can make for a l-o-n-g day. One thing a high school teacher can NOT do is leave the class alone to take a little walk down the hall. I occassionally have a bad day where I can't wait to just get in the car ALONE at the end of the day, so I can get some relief!

This is a great stress-relieving thread, Gary. Thanks for giving my day some needed humor. And yes, send us your non gassy eating tips!

My daughter sent me this poem. Thought I'd pass it along:


A fart it is a pleasant thing,
It gives the belly ease,
It warms the bed in winter,
And suffocates the fleas.

A fart can be quiet,
A fart can be loud,
Some leave a powerful,
Poisonous cloud

A fart can be short,
Or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known
To sound like a song......


A fart can create
A most curious medley,
A fart can be harmless,
Or silent , and deadly.

A fart might not smell,
While others are vile,
A fart may pass quickly,
Or linger a while......

A fart can occur
In a number of places,
And leave everyone there,
With strange looks on their faces.

From wide-open prairie,
To small elevators,
A fart will find all of
Us sooner or later.

But farts are all bad,
Is simply not true-
We must never forget.......
Sweet old farts like you!

:D

This is hilarious. My DH does the fart and hold me under the covers as he has tears streaming down his face thing. He laughs uncontrollably at anything having to do with "butt humor." I mean gasping for air, have to pause the movie, tears rolling uncontrollably.

But he doesn't think "ladies" should fart i.e. me. I am no lady. Too dang bad, we've been married nearly 15 years. But since it makes him a bit angry, I do usually blame the dog or say I don't smell anything. It never works.:p

WTF is UP with men who fart freely all the time but think women can't fart? Women are human beings, too! The average person farts 15 times a day? THAT's comforting! :D Sometimes, I think I'm the only woman who farts, but even I won't fart in public. I wish I had the audacity to, though! I sure hate that MEN farting in public is just "guys being guys" but when women do it, it's disgusting, uncooth, ill-bred, unrefined, classless, and God knows what else! Freakin' double standards! :mad:

No, Shane, you are not the only one...I let 'em rip all the time! I am especially affected by mushrooms...just one mushroom can unleash a "tide" of gas. Broccoli does it too, but not as bad.

I have a friend that woke up in the morning, farted a really long one, and her husband woke up and shut the alarm off...he thought it was the alarm clock! It should come as no surprise that when we were in grade school, the two of us would tape record our farts.

DH and I had the fart discussion this past weekend. (Over steak and asparagus, no less). It seems he is far more aware of my farts than I am of his. :o At least he's cool about it ~ as long as they don't stink and nobody else is around, he thinks it's funny. :lol: He also said he thinks it's cute when I try to play it off. I had NO idea he knew I was doing that!! :rofl:

Does anybody "toot" more when they work out? Or is it just me? :shrug: I have a theory that exercise aides digestion and that's the cause.

No definetely not the only one, but I'm a "sleep farter".:o
I kept denying that I did this (kinda like the ones that deny that they snore!) until one time I woke myself up and my hubby was still awake!:p
