CSB time:

When we moved to northern Japan in the summer of '73 (Air force brat) we were exposed to the amazing wonder that is Japanese TV.

One of the variety shows was "Stupid Human Tricks" on steroids. A feature act was some guys in a farting competition. They showed them backstage prepping, which involved inserting a rubber tube in their ass, and blowing in the other end. Then they would head out on stage, grossly inflated, stiffly clenching their butt cheeks, and would then hike a leg and let it rip.

The judges appeared to consider multiple attributes when scoring, like tone, duration, facial expression, and general presentation. Points were deducted for "mud".

Looking back, it was significantly more cerebral than Jersey Shore.

It just goes to show that humans have always had a silly side. We just didn't always have the means or compunction to record it for posterity.

If they can, cats will just let you assume it was the dog. Dogs don't give a rip. I've known multiple flatulent housecats, but one of my brother's is the only one whose farts are audible. You really have to be careful when you pick her up...

Bessie the Spelling Cow: those pictures had more hairy scrotum that I was expecting


Really? It had less than I was expecting.

But then, I always expect hairy scrotum. I won't be caught off-guard again.

mercator_psi: Come on, no love for the Crepitation Contest?


Me and my kid brother played the hell out of that cassette tape when we were little. Dad got it from the neighbor guy who was supposedly just letting us "borrow" it. Sure hope he made a backup copy of it. Then, as the natural course of events go, we immediately went and recorded our own version on my boombox using handfarts.

/how come VH1 Classic hasn't called me to be on I Love the 80's?
