Was walking home from work today and felt a bit windy so I thought I would let out a long silent one. All good so you think but a couple of teenage girls started laughing hysterically afterwards.

Do you think my bum was steaming??!!

I reckon it was. It's bloody cold today - any warmth in that air would give off steam. How embarassing!!!

LOL, are you sure there was no nose??

woodpops Mon 24-Jan-05 16:06:34

I meant noise

starlover Mon 24-Jan-05 16:06:38

i have no idea, but the thought made me laugh, so thanks!!!

pmsl! After being paranoid about this in my teenage years, my bestfriend and I did an experiment and I can confirm that you would not get steam getting through your clothes on a cold day!

Don't want to make you paranoid, but might they have been laughing at something else? unseen bogey? smudged lippy?

give-away odour?

I reckon it was the smell!

On a vaguely related topic, does having had tearing during birth increase the likelihood of non bum farts

oatcake Mon 24-Jan-05 16:35:00

fanny farts? shouldn't think so because things should heal to the state they were prior to childbirth, but another interesting point! which reminds me of a crude joke I remember from working with men 15 years ago... Ahh, the base ones are always the best (giggling away now...)

"things should heal to the state they were prior to childbirth" yeah, right!! Are you telling me your bits are in the same shape they were prior to you pushing a melon through them?

oatcake Mon 24-Jan-05 16:41:18

Yep. Hence the very safe word "SHOULD" Use it in all my essays!

Seriously though, I think it is an intersting point that dillydally made and one that is worth investigating in class... will let you know!

DillyDally Mon 24-Jan-05 16:41:49

I am sooo glad that no-one knows me in real life
Oh the shame.

I would say it's more dependent on whether you've done your pelvic floor exercises than whether you tore or not.

oatcake Mon 24-Jan-05 16:43:25

yes agree. can't stop laughing at this thread.

Flossam Mon 24-Jan-05 16:43:58

Dp said he wouldn't know any different, and the midwife showed him all my stitches!!!

lou33 Mon 24-Jan-05 16:46:22

How many of us are now sitting at the pc doing our pelvic floor exercises?

SoupDragon Mon 24-Jan-05 16:46:40


We'll have no one PTSL on this thread.

Yes Miss Lou33

lou33 Mon 24-Jan-05 16:58:39

me too

SPARKLER1 Mon 24-Jan-05 20:59:08

I must not laugh - will take the risk of wetting myself if I do!
