More farting
Seems like many here find farts funny so I'll share this. I don't find them particularly funny but the context of this one did it for me.

About 10 years ago I was filming in a massive English stately home that is world famous but shall remain nameless. The Duke who owned the home had died a few years before and the dowager Duchess had curated an exhibition of the late Duke's favourite works of art.

I was filming Her Grace, a tiny, slightly built woman in her late seventies, as she gave a guided tour of the exhibition for local TV.

After talking about a couple of the paintings she turned to cross the gallery. As she did so, this elegant, refined, diminutive, septuagenarian let off one of THE loudest farts I have ever heard. A Clydesdale horse would struggle to peel one off as loud as that.

Most people would have been mortified to fart in public as she had done but the Duchess carried on talking as if nothing had happened. The guided tour went on for a further 25 minutes by which time I had drawn blood biting my lip to stop laughing and tears rolled down my face.

At the tour's end I left the room on the pretence of checking that everything had been recorded OK. I sat quietly in a corner and silently heaved with laughter along with my colleague who had also heard the guff.

To this day I stil marvel at the fact that such a small woman could fart so loudly and also admire the chutzpah of someone who could carry on as if nothing had happened.

A duchess?
"Farting in the peasants' faces" is more-or-less the standard job description for the aristocracy.
