Noxious gases

I seem to have a knack for bringing out certain things in my students.  Lately, that thing seems to be flatulence.

No fewer than six students this week have passed gas in my presence this week. Some of them have trumpeted quite loudly, while others have dropped the dreaded Silent But Deadly bombs.

Farts happen to all of us, although to some more frequently than others.  What really gets me is that none of my little tooting darlings seem to be phased in the slightest when it happens to them.  Not one has batted an eyelash afterwards, nor has anyone seemed the least bit embarrassed.

Ah, to be young and uninhibited again…

    Evidently, the state of NJ has a fart quota that it has to hit every month. If they don’t hit the quota, I think car insurance goes up or something. Anyway, when I told the FBNJ (Fart Bureau of NJ) I was leaving the state, they said they’ve have to make up for it somehow. I guess that is where your students came in.

    Maybe they could help offset the flatus deficit by collaborating with the camber of commerce by increasing apricot imports.

    It could be worse. My kids announce to the world when they farted. And noone can get away with farting in front of them. They all LOUDLY will tell everyone, “EWWW, you FARTED!! Thats STINKY”. We can never pass quietly down a grocery isle and let an SBD. Dang.
