Farting - The be all end all of understanding the proverbial poot.
The fart is essentially the body's way of expelling excess gas that is formed during the digestion of foods and drinks that have components that make them difficult to digest.
Foods like: corn, cabbage, beer, milk, broccoli, cheese, and beans all cause, at least for most people, a gaseous response.
Each fart producing food will create farts of varying sound and odoriferous potency, but all are insanely amusing, with one exception: The "silent and not deadly" fart. More on this later.
The main reason that people find flatulence amusing is the area from which the fart is expelled. If a fart was simply a gaseous expulsion from the ear canal, it would not be nearly as amusing as the varying musical tones that the anus can produce while transferring methane and sulfur into the atmosphere.
Also, other than the mouth, the anus is the only orifice capable of whistling "Dixie", which makes it amply amusing to small children and old pedophiles alike.
Any time, and anywhere! Farting is a natural human process and every opportunity to fart is an opportunity for your ass to express its innermost feelings. Give your asshole a voice in any situation and it will rarely let you down.
People have long expressed a dislike for the fart, but times are changing. Nearly every phone now has an application which will allow it to mimic a fart...like a whoopee cushion but updated for the new millennium. Fart jokes are pervasive on even network television these days, which means the collective view of the "ass blast" is swinging towards the positive.
It is a brave new world, my friends.
