    Default Serious Question, Seriously.

    If you were attending a funeral (non fire department) and the building was silent, would you laugh if someone farted?

    I have never understood why anyone would find a normal biological function so humorous.

    I had a teacher, (about 45 years ago) who got onto some kids for laughing at another kid that "let one" in class. She asked them, "You ever had gas". Of course they said "no". She said, "well you'll never make it to ten since you all will just blow one day". It wasn't funny after that and they really believed her. We had the noisiest class in the school that year.

    If a teacher told a kid that today, you could buy tickets to a public hanging.

    Cool Would I laugh????

    I guess it really depends on who farted. If it was the person in the box I would probably go way past farting and sh>*t myself right there.





    Oh - if it was anyone other than the guy in the box you bet I would laugh.

    It would warrant a chuckle, for sure... The real question is how loud was it and did anyone laugh at you for doing it?

    man who stand on toilet is high on pot.
    man who drops watch in toilet has $hitty time

    i guess it would depend on who it was. for instance, a fart from a married man, with his wife sitting right next to him would be hilarious because you know she would do that really slow head turn with a bright red face and give him the "im gonna kill you" look.

    or you got the people who try and cover it by coughing at the same time, as if a fart and cough sound anything alike... even funnier is when the fart is lengthier than the cough. oops...busted.

    lastly, a fart joke -
    A man and his wife have gone to bed. After laying in bed for a few minutes the man lets rip a fart.
    Wifey rolls over and growls, "What in God's name was that?"
    Man says, "TOUCHDOUWN, I'm ahead, 7 to nothing!!!"
    A few minutes later the wife lets rip a Scorcher.
    Husband says, "Crikey, what was that?"
    She replies "Touchdown, tie score."
    The man lays there for about 10 minutes trying to work one up. He tries so hard he craps in bed.
    The wife asks, "Now what in the world was that?"
    He replies, "Halftime, switch sides."

    The answer, of course, is, yes. I grew up in a house with 4 boys. A fart is funny, every single time. Period, end of discussion.

    True Story:

    Although I didn't fart it still relates to the story since there was a funeral and lots of laughing. My coaches mom died(sad I know) and being on the hockey team and in a catholic school we were required to go out of respect. We were sitting in the pews and everything was going fine, knelt down once no problem knelt down twice, no problem it wasn't until the third time I had the problem where the kneeler broke where you heard a LOUD BOOM of it breaking in a silent church. Mass went on but I had a face of OMG what did I just do ? I just broke this thing. Now my team starts laughing that I just broke this kneeler and im laughing at them laughing and they start laughing harder cause im turning as red as a cherry. Im getting hit by the Hockey coordinator/teacher tellin me to stop which just makes things worse because you have my team laughing at me getting hit also. So I try my best to play it off like im crying or something. Once the laughing stopped rest of the mass went off without a hitch.

    Now that's funny.

    While I think there is a time and place for everything, it seems every time I attend a funeral, we always get around to the laughing part anyway. Usually it is after the service, and while everyone is sitting around reflecting on the person and their life. Some of the buddies I lost would have found alot of humor in a fart at their funeral; almost as if it would be expected.

    I wish I had time to sit around and think about "what-if" questions up like this. I might have to take off next week and see how that works out.

    With a nick like that, I know you're playing D&D right now. You can tell us, we're your brothers.

    Never played D&D. It is a bit too "out there" for me. I'm more the History Student.

    As for my usename, I've had the nickname Paladin since I was young kid. Knight is a play on my last name, ----night.

    My dad had a sense of humor and was a big fan of Richard Boone as Paladin in "Have Gun - Will Travel". I think he wanted me to grow up and be a "gun-slinger", but I chose "hose-slinging" instead. He never understand it.

    But it was my dad that taught me that your actions, honor and reputation are more important than any words you can ever speak. That kept me somewhat humble I suppose. I was also raised to help others when they need it. Kind of a Knight thing, "Triumph over Evil". If you consider what I chose to do, and you squint your eyes just right, a fire looks pretty evil at times.

    Years ago, I used to write Paladin on the back of my helmet; seemed cool at the time. But guys just called me "Pal"; that wasn't cool. Nowdays my white helmet is just plain; no name. I wake everyday and try to figure out how I got here. I don't think the nickname helped any.

    Thanks for asking about it.

    This topic is off the rails and going over the edge. But I guess it beats passing gas.
