Beans, beans, the musical fruit
The more you eat, the more you toot
The more you toot, the better you feel
So eat beans at every meal!

That was one of my favourite little songs when I was a kid. My buddies and I loved reciting it. It was right up there with "Who cut the cheese?" and "He who smelt it, dealt it".

But with age comes maturity...or so I'm told...and as we age those juvenile rhymes and phrases aren't as funny as they once were. But others are! At least I think they are, but then no one ever accused me of being a "mature" adult. Here are my top ten:

10) Confucius say man who fart in church sit in own pew.

9) Why do farts stink? So that deaf people can enjoy them too!

8) How can you tell if a woman is wearing pantyhose? Her ankles swell when she farts.

7) Did you hear about the constipated Wheel of Fortune player? He wanted to buy a bowel.

6) Did you hear about the constipated mathematician? He worked it out with a pencil.

5) Laugh and the world laughs with you; fart and they'll stop laughing.

4) What is the sharpest thing in the world? A fart - it goes through your pants and doesn't even leave a hole.

3) What do you call a fart in German? Farfrompoopin.

2) What do you call someone who doesn't fart in public? A private tutor.

1) Mrs. O'Brien arrived in Boston from Ireland and in no time at all her bean soup made her the talk of New England society. At a party celebrating the sale of her recipe to a fancy restaurant, an old matron went up to Mrs. O'Brien and asked "My dear girl, please tell me: what is the secret of your soup?"
"The secret to my soup is that I use but 239 beans to make it," said Mrs. O'Brien.
"Why only 239?" asked the woman.
"Because one more would make it too farty!"

Beans beans, they're good for your heart
The more you eat, the more you fart
The more you fart, the better you feel
Eat your beans every meal

Ah, I have encountered a true fart aficionado who knows the alternative version of this little ditty. Thank you for sharing...the verse.

From you Quirky I would expect no less. Happy tooting!

groooan on the mathematician. I love to groan, so good job.
nonamedufus said…
Farts do have a habit of making one do that...especially if you're on the receiving end.

What a gas!
nonamedufus said…
The original "natural" gas. And, if you're smoking, don't stand too close.
00dozo said…
You know, I never did understand the rationale behind lighting a match after you, um ... well, have a poop or fart, particularly in a small cubicle in a public restroom. I have this mental picture of a flaming "poof" with the occupant then emerging with (at the very least) singed eyebrows.

nonamedufus said…
Me either. Sounds like a bit of an oxymoron. You know, like, military intelligence and amicable divorce.
MA Fat Woman said…
One of my favorite subjects. I'm now middle-aged and I haven't out grown it. Have you ever heard the diarrhea song? I'd have to sing it to you so you could appreciate the beauty of it...
nonamedufus said…
You had my curiosity going so I went looking for it. Phew!
MA Fat Woman said…
Not quite my version (I didnt realize there were so many) but it goes along to the diarrhea cch cch tune

Goin on first and my pants was bout to burst,
diarrhea, cch, cch, diarrhea, cch ccch
Going on second and my pants was real infested
diarrhea " " "
Going on third and was bout to let a turd
diarrhea " " "
going on home and my pants was full of foam
diarrhea, cch cch
The people thought it funny but it really hot and runny
diarrhea cch cch, diarrhea cch cch

Its really great to sing around little kids that don't belong to you because they will keep singing it until their parents go nuts! :)
nonamedufus said…
Sounds perfect to share with my eldest grandson!
Chris@Knucklehead! said…
Wow. Now that's some fart humor.
nonamedufus said…
No, I won't pull your finger.
Nicky said…
I cut cheese regularly. It's very Gouda.
nonamedufus said…
Me too. But never at full force. Just Havarti. (hahaha)
Janna said…
I love fart jokes.
I'll let the next one in your honor.

Give me a moment.

Nice article, thanks for the information.
Janna said…
Yeah, I totally meant to say "Nice article, thanks for the information" too, but I was too busy farting instead.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)

Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...

I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
