Did the S.S. Taco Bell sink or does this look familiar?

Is it yesterday already? My watch is fast.

Don't care, it's still a fart, therefore it's still funny.

Pull my flipper.

Indeed, if anything is worth posting twice, a fart joke is definitely it.

That's a whale of a fart! (someone had to say it so please direct all complaints at me)
 
2003-08-15 4:33:49 AM  
I'm struggling not to imagine it.
 
2003-08-15 4:34:00 AM  
I find that fart beautiful no matter how many times I see it.
 
2003-08-15 4:34:57 AM  
Oh yeah lest I should forget to mention it, the whale's butt chum trail is pretty sexy as well. Kinda makes me think of Shark Week on Discovery Channel. Pretty convenient too seeing as this week is really Shark Week and all.

Lastly, if the icebergs were about 100 feet closer to the camera we'd get to see just how slippery whale shiat on an iceberg really is.

Sonic Farts!
 
2003-08-15 4:37:40 AM  
Deja vu...I hope its still Friday, though
 
2003-08-15 4:41:23 AM  
I SMELL a repeat.
 
2003-08-15 4:41:53 AM  
Ok another thought hit me, with that trail behind him that's definitely the whale fart equivalent of a "check your shorts" situation.
 
2003-08-15 4:43:29 AM  
Thar she blows !
 
2003-08-15 4:46:23 AM  
Does this mean they cured cancer and can now move on to frivelous crap?
 
2003-08-15 4:46:58 AM  
Bravo!! Well done, 10 out of 10.

It was night in the Big City. Even with the power out you could still smell the desperation in the streets.
I dishy bonde knocked on the door... asked for a private dick... "that's me," I replied... then she told a fart joke.
But the fart joke was stale... stale as a blue whale's flatulence in an uncaring ocean...

Wow, so that's what Andie MacDowell looks like these days.

2003-08-15 4:57:02 AM  
How do they know it wasn't an underwater burp?
 
2003-08-15 5:01:06 AM  
That's got to smell fishier that Rosie O'Donnell's gusset.
 
2003-08-15 5:09:59 AM  
I think the whale was farting in the general direction of the icelanders who are gonna restart whaling today.
 
2003-08-15 5:15:04 AM  
That's no whale, it's a Collins class submarine!

"IT'S one of the unfortunate consequences of being a mammal - flatulence."

I like the smell of my own farts, so why do they write this? Who of you don't like to fart? Huh?
 
2003-08-15 5:24:05 AM  
What the fart is the US Navy waiting for to turn this into a bio weapon ?
 
2003-08-15 5:25:02 AM  
It looks more like shiat to me.

Still no cure for cancer, natch.
 
2003-08-15 5:40:53 AM

Dang... Somebody strike a match!
 
2003-08-15 6:51:56 AM  
That's no whale, it's a Collins class submarine!

No way - a Collins class sub would be in drydock, not the ocean.
 
2003-08-15 6:54:39 AM  
Now thats not something you see every day!
 
2003-08-15 7:01:01 AM  
Yet another biological milestone reached!
 
2003-08-15 7:15:41 AM  
Is there a bigger photo of that anywhere else? Looks like a quality photoshop!
 
2003-08-15 7:20:29 AM  
Whale farts extensively studied. Still no cure for repeats.

The only ones I have ever heard saying that were Terence and Philip.

OK then, do we need a thread with voting to suggest people who could use the phrase "oh dear I've just farted, how unfortunate"???

Enable voting. What type of thread would that be, caption??

Do whale farts contain methane? Can you light a whale fart?
I cant even imagine the flame that thing would blow out. Probably enough to incinerate a sailboat.

I don't think I have ever so eagerly clicked on a headline before.

"You don't want to sail a ship over an erupting whale," said Jennifer Reynolds, chief expedition scientist and a University of Alaska marine geologist.
