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

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

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

Oh not guff, that's just wrong grin

I like boffed.

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

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

For some reason I keep thinking of Donald.

No, I can't stand it either.

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).

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.
