    Default Why are Farts so Funny?

    Okay, people, I'm trying to be serious here! Really...why do we always laugh so hard...and endlessly (no pun intended)...when someone farts in public?

    Any sociologists out there?

    I admit it....I'm still laughing at this one....

    Ha! I've pondered this and have no solution.

    I was watching this:



    I said, "Oh great. The lowest form of humor on the planet." I was laughing hysterically. I couldn't stop even though I knew it was toilet humor.

    I suspect that farts and bananas are next door neighbors in the brain.

    I don't know why but I found this combination of farts and Mythbusters.

    I think that what makes us laugh is the other's misfortune/pain/shame... come to think of it, I can't think of a joke that doesn't involve someone being screwed in some way.

    because it might be your last smile before you die under ass gass

    seriously: don't know what makes it funny if you fart, I guess its just the sound that is kind of interesting and our brain find it funny. not about girls if you ask them they don't fart, that sounds too dirty for their bodies to do.. they just caugh ( trough their ass ) or make silent ones, that are close to armageddon

    cool thread!

    I think it has a lot to do with this. When other people fart on accident, there is a level of embarrassment, so I laugh. When I fart, it causes pain to those around me, so I laugh (Although this one never made much sense to me because my farts smell pretty good I think). When other people fart and I'm around, I don't think it's funny if I can smell it.

    Thanks for cheering up a dull day.
    Just the word fart makes me laugh!
    In fact am still sniggering at TonyB's comments about farting in that very fancy studio in another thread...
    I have pictured it with full reverb... bouncing from shiny sterile surface to slick accoustic surace, leaving a faint, almost indiscernible residue behind, with each bounce, growing and quivering
    until it reached the top of the room and hung there, sort of trembling - waiting for the appropriate moment to collapse

    now that I think about it... there could even be music to it..
    O god... help... back to work Emma!

    I know. I don't get it. I doesn't bother me, but it affects everyone.
    I can watch that video that I posted 500 times and still laugh just as hard.
    I mean a fart caused a council meeting to take a recess! Why? Because they all couldn't stop laughing.

    I've been told it's coz I'm immature! (which is kinda rich considering my ripe old age)
    I'm laughing again just thinking about that council meeting... it's sort of primal.

    Hate to admit it but did a quick google search and am guessing there are a lot of fartists out there..

    My baby has epic farts and I've been laughing at them for 8 months.

    Also funny is when a car/tugboat honks and my wife says "pardon me".

    I needed to read this thread again.. (for research purposes) and notice that TonyB posted it with the intent of serious research. Because I'm a helpful soul, thought I'd bump it back up the list

    Thank you, Emma!

    It just intriques me that someone farting (not the intentional farts for show or entertainment) makes practically anyone laugh and the more you think about it, the more you tend to laugh.

    I can't think of any other topic, event, or situation that causes us to always laugh at the same thing.

    Farts take us back to our child hood. That little bit of naughtiness. Face it, everyone likes to hear a good ripper.

    Anything that causes embarrassment to others is usually fun for others to watch. Just our nature.
