Good news for Vince Mc Mahon.
2002-01-23 12:19:27 AM  
A long time ago, yeah
Before you was born, dude
When I was still single
And life was great
I kept this job as
A travelling salesman.
It kept me movin'
From state to state.

Well I was standin' on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisianna
Across the street from the Lone Star Cafe

Lots of people earn millions yearly from professional sports for doing nothing.

Like, oh say, the players...
2002-01-23 12:20:51 AM  
all i have to say is that this guy made a smart move by getting in on the other teams' TV revenue... great way to make tons of money by doing nothing except for being a player in the NBA yourself

Quick question: When you fart sitting down, which way do you lean? Left or right? I'm writing a term paper.
2002-01-23 12:31:38 AM  

Lean right

I went to a couple of the Spirit of St. Louis games back when I was about 10 or 11.....Got to see Dr. J before he became a Sixer.....Anyway the team was pretty bad although Marvin Barnes (mentioned in the article) was quite the character....full length furs, very pimped out fella. Anyway, famous story about him. The team was returning from a game just inside the eastern time zone. The planes flight time was listed as something like this:

Departing 6:05 Arriving 6:00 (due to the time difference...)

Marvin was quoted as saying "I ain't getting in no damn time machine". He rented a car and drove back to St. Louis.

*clears throat*

He invested in land wisely and soon was not growing more alfalfa than any other man in the county. Neighbors sought him out for advice on all subjects, for he had much money and was therefore wise. "As ye sow, so shall ye reap," he counseled one and all, and everyone said, "Amen."

Bigpeeler: I lean in which ever direction there isn't a wall when I've gotta let one go.
2002-01-23 12:41:01 AM  
I lean right. Of course, that's because there's always someone who deserves it on the left of me. Strange coincidence, no?
2002-01-23 12:47:06 AM  
Bigpeeler:Depends, sometimes left, sometimes right, and sometimes I don't lift...I can get a good musical note (b flat) that way.
2002-01-23 12:54:45 AM  
Then again, much like Shigelojoe, I'll tend to aim one direction or the other if there's a deserving victim nearby.

I fart in your general direction
2002-01-23 01:06:51 AM  
Bigpeeler: I would think it has something to do with your handedness. For the record, I am left-handed, and lean left.
2002-01-23 01:37:11 AM  
It really depends on the type of material I'm sitting. If it's a hardwood chair I lean to the left most of the time.

However, if it's a nice cushiony object (ie a couch)- I don't lean at all and instead proceed to fire flatulence upon flatulence directly into the couch, turning it into a low tech 'fart capacitor.' The gaseous fumes are then absorbed by the couch and oxygen pours in as I rise from the couch.

The next person who sits down in my spot then release the fumes and subsequently gets blamed as "the one who cut the cheese."

I wrote a master's thesis on this some time back Bigpeeler if you are looking for some references, let me know.

Wow, Sideshow, it's not often that Fark makes me laugh out load anymore. Had I been reading that comment tomorrow morning, you could have owed me a new keyboard.
2002-01-23 01:40:38 AM  
Laugh out "loud," obviously.
2002-01-23 02:00:28 AM  
biggi: i heard once that it has something to do with your gonads. my right hangs slightly lower than my left and i tend to lean left when i fluff.

oh, and sometimes when i have company i like to catch my fart before it dissipates into nothingness and toss it in the face of the unsuspected victim beside me. But then i'm sure i'm not the only one.
2002-01-23 02:11:55 AM  
while we're on the subject ....

i have an uncle who can be walking down the street at a slow steady pace - let a whopper rip - and not even break his stride. he doesn't even so much as flinch. i have asked him many a time how he does that, and with a wry smile he replies ...

" it's an art son. not one that can be taught ... but still, an art worth your learning "

i'm not exactly sure what that means

Buckshot, exactly WHICH end of your body would the coffee come spewing out of?
2002-01-23 03:33:15 AM  
Bigpeeler: I'm right-handed, and I tend to lean right. Of course, unless my girlfriend's to my left. Then I sit down next to my roommate and blame it on him.

The hardest time to blame a fart on your roommate is when you're getting a blowjob. That shiat better knock her unconscious, or else you're in for a hell of berating.

Meantime, I fought a rat for an hour last night over some food.
2002-01-23 07:54:18 AM  
BigPeeler:I lean in whichever direction there is someone that deserves a good smell. Used to be my ex. >=)
2002-01-23 08:14:07 AM  
I usually stand up, go into my supervisor's office, ask him a question and let it go in there.
2002-01-23 09:44:55 AM  
Submitted this yesterday. How'd it get past the farked up filter?
2002-01-23 09:48:09 AM  
Doo dah; Doo dah....seriously...why do I care about this and how is it entertaining?
2002-01-23 11:06:02 AM  
I prefer to empty Pringles cans and fart in them, seal them back up and save my farts for latter smelling. Currently, I have 14 cans (some dating back to mid-1997) saved up.

I've actually opened one up before after a year or so and you really can still smell the fart.
2002-01-23 12:31:40 PM  
ok. Maybe I'm weird... I lean forward. ?
2002-01-23 12:37:18 PM  
*is currently leaning to the right* Ahhhhh.....
2002-01-23 05:58:05 PM  
Sideshow: Fart capacitor!
