No matter how sophisticated we get, the breaking of wind will ALWAYS be funny. It is an immutable law of nature.

Aristophanes, the ancient Greek playwright, made fart jokes. If they were around that far back and still persist today, it must be human nature to be amused by them.

2007-09-21, 02:32 PM
I most certainly do not find them funny, nor does anyone of my species (as far as I know)

2007-09-21, 02:32 PM
But when old farts fart, its just disgusting. I mean, they don't even smile! They fart and keep walking.

So funny :smallbiggrin:.

I would rather chew on a mouthful of shattered glass than post in a thread devoted to farts. Disgusting.
Speaking of which, my mouth is bleeding something awful.

farts are funny, they will always be funny, as is anything involving the ass. from a dog licking it to ass cancer. some may also be sad, but its an inherently funny organ. its even better when included in the middle of a serious political discussion.

Meh. I don't find them Laugh-For-Five-Minutes-Because-They're-So-Funny funny, but they deserve a chuckle every once in a while.
I mean, they sound kinda funny. :smallbiggrin:

Meh, I didn't even think they were funny when I was a little kid. They stink and... thats about it. What exactly is there to tickle one's funny bone?

Meh, not particularly. Something like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb1SHcy9JhM), however, is kind of amusing, if only because it's just so random.

But just a random fart joke? Meh, juvenile. And this is me talking.

Fart jokes, like poop jokes and the like, are a way of poking holes people's hubris. Deflating pride is a common thing for humor to do.

The joke usually implicit in fart jokes is that man, who frequently thinks of himself as being a complete a master of his own being, can't stop himself from creating noisy, foul smelling emissions of gas out of a hole in his rear end. The assumptions made for the joke are more or less "farts are icky" and "humans aren't supposed to be icky".

If farts and such don't particularly bother you, or if you don't think of humans as being inherently better than any other animal, just more complex, than the humor of fart jokes probably isn't readily apparent.

Now that I've produced a reasonable hypothesis on how it's supposed to work, you are most certainly never going to find the joke funny for the rest of your life. If anyone needs me to suck the life out of any other jokes, just lemme know.

On a related note, a fun hygiene related poem is The Lady's Dressing Room (http://andromeda.rutgers.edu/~jlynch/Texts/dressing.html), by Jonathan Swift.

Oh gimme a...

You are talking to someone who made a fewmet golem, and the great god Porcelain who has the Commode domain.

Farts themselves however just ain't funny!

Now this I find funny. (http://www.clipjunkie.com/Do-Girls-Fart-vid300.html)

Like everything else, there are good fart jokes and bad ones. It's more about the presentation than the fart itself, but they've got the potential to be really, really funny.

2007-09-22, 05:16 PM
Farts are like a punchline. It's all about timing, if you get the timing wrong, it's just a smelly expulsion of gas, but if is given the correct timing, hilarity ensues. That said, it's rarely funny, and when it is, its normally due to a fluke.

A good joke shouldn't poison you.

I rofl'd. Well, I lol'd, I didn't quite rofl. I rarely if ever rofl.

I think that this (http://www.pvponline.com/article/2672/Tue-Mar-28?y=2006) sums up my opinion quite nicely.
