Well I guess it's the power of air and many cleanup's. Some of us are glad it's getting out if you know what I mean. I have had some problems lately too so understand where that is coming gail

Yep.I've learnt that lesson the hard way. I bet we all have. Even if your not overly religious what do you all pray for? I find myself saying when I make a mad dash to a public restroom something like,
"Please God let their be toilet paper in the dispenser, oh and PS............I prefer the more absorbent type, not that slipery stuff some places pass off as TP its nasty."

Everyone hates it when a fart turns out to be a shart.

Just go with your "gut feeling" and hope for the best! ha, it's fun to laugh at it, but it really does suck in the end!!!!

I can laugh about it now, but at the time, it truly wasn't funny!  I was on my way to a school play, had a pair of white capri pants on.  Got out of the car and before I could shut the door...oooops!!!  Had to leave and change my pants.  After that, I never trusted a fart again.

Hmmmm....try taking a stool sample in one of those lovely specimen jars and trying to decide whether it's a fart or if you're about to baptize to hand! You know if we could bottle all that gas...we'd be some financially well off wouldn't we!

Yep, they are also the most crooked things in the world. You aim them at the floor , and they hit you in the nose.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Yes....does anyone even bother buying white underpants anymore? I mean, what's the point.

It's easy to grin, when your ship comes in...and you've got the stock market beat.  But the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile, when his shorts are too tight in the seat.

Let that be another life's lesson learned - never wear white pants. I don't trust white underwear either.
