To still find farting hilarious?

I've changed my diet recently, and Ive been really windy as a result. Lots of long, loud farts. I did one earlier that sounded a bit like a kazoo...

Anyway is it immature that I'm in my 30's and still find it hysterically funny when someone lets rip? I find even it funnier when people use really twee words like 'trump' and 'pump' instead of fart.

I work at a school and last year a little reception class boy walked in, sat on the carpet and announced in front of everyone 'I just farted'. The teacher, completley straight faced told him off for being rude, but I had to gag myself so I didn't howl with laughter.

There's nothing funnier, is there?

YABU, they are not funny at all. Unless they come from my tiny beautiful baby girl, because she just doesn't look capable of farting like a trucker it makes it hilarious.

RichardBucket sorrt your name sounds like a fart euphemism!

Farts are great. I love telling my Spanish students what Donald Trump's name means grin

Bum pouffes are very popular in our house.

Hahah yes, I used to find the fact there was a person called Donald 'Trump' hilarious when I was little blush

A good friend of mine, married 12 years, reckons she's never parped in front of her DH!! Ever. I asked her what she does when she feels one brewing, she didn't want to talk about it!!

Runny Thu 25-Aug-16 22:43:04

How can you go 12 years without farting in front of your DH?! That's just weird.

Not hilarious in classroom.
God knows what some of them eat.
Other children don't find it funny because they have to sit breathing it in and it really pisses them off. Always lots of angry complaining after someone has farted.

YABU. I genuinely cannot find anything even remotely amusing about them. My DD laughs at them, but she's not even 2 yet.

How is that even possible. 12 minutes and I was probably farting in front of my DPgrin

I find them hilarious still. Even funnier I work in a place called Trumpet grin

liz70 Thu 25-Aug-16 23:01:40

Do I find the sound and/or smell of your - or anyone elses' - bowel gases escaping from their anus?

Nope. YABU.

Milzilla Thu 25-Aug-16 23:02:30


It's gross.

pluckpluckpluck Thu 25-Aug-16 23:25:09

yabu. gross. my ex DP and I went 6 years without farting in front of each other (I did hear him a few times in his sleep and I'm sure he heard me in my sleep)

My husband and I have never farted in front of each other, nor do we use the loo in front of each other. There has been zero effort involved btw. It simply wouldn't occur to us to do either of those things. Why would it? I've known him since I was 21 which is 41 years ago. It's never been an issue and tbh I'm at a loss to understand anyone deliberately farting in the presence of anyone else - and before some smartass chimes in - babies are excluded from this. Believe it or not I can't remember what and when I did as a baby.

Mynestisfullofempty Thu 25-Aug-16 23:31:18

Sorry, I ignored the point of the thread. I don't understand what's funny about farting. It's no more hilarious than hiccups, headaches, nausea or sneezing. Just a bodily function that we all have from time to time. confused

Boogers Thu 25-Aug-16 23:43:41

It's very funny when the DCs laugh so much they fart, and with that fart comes more laughter! grin

YANBU OP. Farts ARE hilarious grin

WeirdAndPissedOff Thu 25-Aug-16 23:56:44

YANBU, op.
Maybe it is gross/immature, but I still find them funny. grin
Until you smell them, anyway!

Hmm, I guess if someone is not particularly gassy I can see how they could not FART in front of partners, but usually you FART a lot more often than needing the loo - I can't imagine leaving the room every time, or "holding it in".

Farts are hilarious.

I can't imagine spending 41 years not being able to fart in front of my wife (or her in front of me).

Picture the scene: It is just gone midnight. You and your spouse are tucked up nice and warm in bed, whilst the rest of the house is cold and dark. You've both had a nice egg and brussel sprout vindaloo for tea, washed down with a pint of Guinness. Your bowels are bubblingly showing their appreciation. What do you do if you have a fart brewing?

Do you really get out of your nice warm bed, leave the room, break wind, and then get back into bed?

Or do you think, fuck it, I'm cosy, it'll warm up the bed a bit more, and the only other person in the room is the person I have been married to for most of my life?

Yes bung I do indeed get up. I have been known to sleep in the spare room on occasion where I am particularly sulphurous. Why would I want to subject anyone to that?

donajimena Fri 26-Aug-16 00:14:08

I do find the odd mistimed ones funny though.. like my friend who thought she would sneak one out on a plastic chair in a beer garden. I swear everyone stopped mid sip of drinks such was the reverberation.
She was mortified. I was doubled up. But in general no. Not funny.
