FARTOLOGY: The Extraordinary Science Behind the Humble FartSTEFAN GATES Book Number: 90048 Product format: Hardback
Do all creatures fart? Why do farts smell and why do we find them embarrassing, but so darned funny? Here we take a scientific look at the body's extraordinary methane-making abilities and all the weird science behind intestinal gas - the sounds, smells, plus farty recipes, musings on the greatest farters in history, farts in literature and fart euphemisms in a book of trouser-exploding fun. Beware, wear your glasses as some of the pages are fluorescent orange and green, lots of Parp and Trump graphic design, fun cartoon art with stick people plus diagrams and lots of explosive fun. Have you seen Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles? Nuff said. Follow the recipe for fried sausages, add bacon and fry until crispy, add beans and passata, simmer, season, serve and sit back. The fartiest foods on earth include Jerusalem artichokes as we are treated to the science about bacteria in our colon and raffinose-rich foods, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage and a break down of the worst fart smells (rotten eggs, putrid cabbage, fishy, cheesy, cat poo-ish, flowery dog poo, cabbage, eggy).
