to hate the word 'trump'

I only say 'trumpy bum' to my dd to make her giggle when she lets rip her spectacular manly farts. (She is 15 mths old.) Otherwise they are just farts.

I don't like it either, but it seems to be the approved "phrase" at ds's school.
Anyone doing a trump fart is then expected to say "pardon me" which I also detest. ("sorry" or "excuse me" is what we use at home).

No, I can't stand it either.

My dgc sing of Nelly the Elephant:"Off she went with a trumpety trump[blow raspberry] trump [raspberry] trump [raspberry] trump [raspberry]
grin

For some reason I keep thinking of Donald.

In my family (the one I grew up in), we played Trumps. Card game, a bit like Whist.

Dh insists on trump for fart. It is now ds's favourite word, dd is a little past this phrase but does like a good passing of wind. Cue much hilarity at family gatherings when someone suggests "game of Trumps anyone?" grin

I HATE it, I really cannot put into words how much I hate it - "have you trumped?" from a 70 year old sounds ridiculous hmm

we always say fart to the kids. trump seems a bit old school.

Oh not guff, that's just wrong grin

I like boffed.

I don't see what's wrong with fart. Trump irritates me.

YANBU but then we use "pop" for dc which isn't much better blush

I much prefer guff, fart and trouser trumpet. grin

especially when it is used by adults hmm My dad insists on using it and I absolutely hate it, it sets my teeth on edge. Not sure what to use with the DCs, really grin
