Um. Now I know which scratch and sniff card to get you, Lindy.

The incongruity of an olfactory and auditory phenomenon having a site dedicated to its video representation is mildly amusing. Your gloss of the advert on the other hand is tediously redundant.

I have to admit, I am a chronic elevator farter, and I'm just pleased as punch to find a site where my evil-yet-hilarious habit is glorified.

I keep getting ads like, "How do you know if he's into you?" and "Finding the right guy" et cetera. Apparently google thinks I'm gay.

@3, Every now and then farts have a visual quality as well...

I didn't realize!!! Oh my god, I am SO SORRY I put you through that.

If you would stop sending people emails about Farce of the Penguins this matter would probably be settled.

@12: How do you take a picture of a fart? Oh, nevermind, just send me a couple.

You really are 12, aren't you?

Posted by Emily | January 18, 2008 11:05 AM

Yeah, but I was held back a year, so I'm only in 5th grade.

Posted by Lindy | January 18, 2008 12:51 PM

@12 So, no Emancipation Proclamation then?
