Is this article causing mass, yawn-like, reactions, or is it just me?

Uh, "Get out and walk Donald." WTF??

Funniest one for me: Horton hears a poo.

Did anyone else read that in George Carlin's voice?  Like when he ran down the long list of dirty words you can't say?

It's funnier if you do...

What? No Screeching Red-Eye?

That's more of a technique, I suppose.

And therwith spak this clerk, this absolon,
Spek, sweete bryd, I noot nat where thou art.
This nicholas anon leet fle a fart,
As greet as it had been a thonder-dent,
That with the strook he was almoost yblent;
And he was redy with his iren hoot,
And nicholas amydde the ers he smoot.

Came here to say this, but I think instead I'll go with pretending to think you meant "massive, yawn-like reaction" as an addition to the list.

When I was young and foolish, we'd pretend to clutch the 'cloud' with our hands, form a sphere then a basketball, and make a jump shot.  As I said, I was young and foolish at the time.

As in, when you fart it sounds like a yawn?
 
2013-06-26 11:42:57 AM
151 if you include the word "fart".

kkinnison: I was hoping to learn how to say fart in different languages


French: des vents, la flatulence
Spanish: tirarse un pedo, la flatulencia
German: der furz, die Blähungen
Portuguese: um peido, flatulência

How's that for starters? Source:  http://www.linguee.com/

Of those languages, I've only really studied French, and those studies never formally covered idioms regarding gaseous anal emissions. Point is, YMMV.
