Ainít No Crater Low Enough

So Iíve been watching a bunch of 80ís grossout TíníA comedies lately, in preparation for next weekís commendably filthy Superbad. Occasional parachute pants overload aside, itís been a surprisingly enjoyable experience, ranging from the pneumatic Shannon Tweed highs of Hot Dog: The Movie! to the bleak Bergman lows of The Last American Virgin. (That ending! In the car! With the rain! And the James Ingram! Jesus Christ!) After what I witnessed this morning, though, I think Iím done. This Ö thing just canít be topped, or bottomed.
The movie in question? 1979ís King Frat, a Canadian Animal House ripoff about a farting contest where the participants run the risk of getting disqualified for (god forgive me) ďdrawing mudĒ. In anticipation of your question: Yes, the climactic bout is available on YouTube, and no, you really shouldnít watch it, at work or otherwise.
So, anyway, my questions: Has anyone out there even heard of this thing? Any examples of particularly crass highlights from other movies in the genre? Will the theme song (“King Frat! King Fraaaat!”) ever leave my head? Am I going to hell? Will this be showing when I get there?
