to find it strange that DH records himself farting

I realise this sounds quite ridiculous (have namechanged).

DH gave me his LG phone as he got a new upgrade, he left all the music on it because we like similar stuff.

DS aged 2 woke up v.early this morning so I got in his bed and was playing music on the phone to him, to let DH and DD sleep until his alarm.

In a folder marked 'unknown' i found all these really long sound clips of disgusting wet, loud LONG farts. I have never heard farts like it. DS was laughing his head off, and I did kind of giggle because they were so unbelievable! I thought that they must have been downloaded from the net or something.

But at the end of one clip, my DS's unmistakeable voice, saying 'Daddy?'

The phone has a voice recorder on it!
Theres loads of them, all dated...going back a year or so. There's even one from the day our baby DD was born! AAhhhh.

When he woke up I said 'there's a lot of farts on that mobile you gave me!' - he went quiet then mumbled that he wanted to attach them to an email to his mate or something. I said 'oh ok' and left it.
After he went out I went back to the phone and he'd secretly deleted them all!

AIBU to think this a bizarre hobby? To record yourself doing that? Mind you, they were so extraordinary that I suppose he is quite proud of them!

Have you ever discovered your DH/DP does something secret and weird?
I kind of want to laugh and wind him up about it, but not sure if I should!

grin grin grin
Oh Lord, I have tears rolling down my face!

Sorry, ahem, yes <attempts to be understanding>

Yanbu to find it a bizarre hobby, no!

Why not record your own and ask him to rate them or something? wink

YANBU. That IS weird!

Does he set light to them too, do you know?

I knew people would say this is a troll! Actually, when I first discovered this I was dying to tell mumsnet but kind of held off because I knew I'd get accused of trolling.

It is way too unbelievable, but absolutely true! I don't have the imaginaion to make it up, LOL. Pity he deleted, I can't email them out to you to prove now...

Blokes can be pretty puerile though. He works in an all male environment so I suppose it could be part of some gross blokish joke.

It could be worse, could have been eel porn or something! I think he's really embarrassed...

I don't mind if you do think its a troll post - it kind of reassures me that it is a COMPLETELY off the wall thing to be doing!

LOL, great Friday giggle... blowingoff true, that you just couldn't make up!!

Have you tried googling farts? Honestly there are HUNDREDS of sites where people can post their best fruitful flabby woof-woofs.
Your DH is not alone, sadly.

blowingoff Fri 02-Oct-09 12:01:12

I've never googled it myself, but I am aware that men can find this kind of thing hilarious. Just weird to think of my own DH actually sitting in the loo recording himself. He's actually quite private, I don't think I've ever heard him fart normally in the 5 years we've been together!

I was on two minds about whether they were downloading from the net, I suppose the little boys voice could be someone elses?

But the secret deleting makes me think its definitely him!

So do you think I should bring it up or leave it? I'd like to just laugh about it with him and find out why etc, but I'm not sure he feels very happy about it! He just phoned me, and is so down in the dumps you'd think someone had died!

Dirty boy!! grin

He's probably really embarrassed, bless him.

Pmsl grin
DH thought it was pretty funny, btw. wink I hope you haven't given him any ideas!!!!!

My brothers do it all the time. I find it hilarious!
Once, DB3 asked DB4 to breathe out and let out every bit of air in his lungs. Then pinned him down and farted in his face. "Poor" DB4 had no choice but to breathe it all in!
Oh, I must be such a juvenile - these things put me in hysterics.

If this isn't a wind-up itself...could I offer your DH an admittedly feeble get out clause? He was doing "sound recording for a production".

presumably of the Trouser Trumpet Voluntary...

MikeStand Fri 02-Oct-09 12:41:28

I can't believe you haven't heard him fart in 5 years!

GrungeBlobPrimpants Fri 02-Oct-09 12:41:41

pmsl!!! grin

wind up or not it'smade me laugh ... reminds me of the 'fart club' ds and his mates started a couple of years ago. Your dh should use the bst sound as his phone ring tone, you know

theworldsgoneDMmad Fri 02-Oct-09 12:43:06

You do realise that, for the farts to have been picked up on the phone, your DH would have had to place the mouthpiece close enough to his arsehole, don't you? shock

I'd personally be getting a brand new phone - you should at the very least get the Dettol out shock

SixtyFootDoll Fri 02-Oct-09 12:45:39

Thread of the week!!
It is bizarre that he doesnt fart in front of you but secretly goes off and records himself doing it - almoat pornographic in that sense!!!
He must be mortified.
I wouldnt say much about it, but next time you let rip ask him he managed to tape it for you!

daftpunk Fri 02-Oct-09 12:46:57

....would be a bit worried if my dh was doing it....sort of thing 10 yr old boys would do...but you have made me laugh...

squashedfrogs Fri 02-Oct-09 12:52:18

PMSL grin My DP farts all the time, there's no way he could hold it in and keep it from me! Having grown up with older brothers I generally find it funny although I know it's puerile. In your situation I think I'd just laugh at him.

squeaver Fri 02-Oct-09 12:54:24

Just when you think you've heard it all on Mumsnet...

Glitterknickaz Fri 02-Oct-09 12:56:24

omg I think I just wet myself laughing...

Portofino Fri 02-Oct-09 13:10:41

My DH has very strong um self control in that area and NEVER knowingly farts in my presence. grin Sadly the effort of keeping them all in all day, sadly <ahem> backfires when he is asleep! blush
