This impolite, aromatic, and incredibly erudite flatulence compendium will astound you with:
 
• The recent discovery of the world’s oldest joke, a proverb from the Babylonian period, that turned out to be—that’s right, folks—a fart joke.
• A new reading of Emily Dickinson’s poetry that “reveals” the true meaning behind “They Have a Little Odor.”
• A harrowing account of Apollo astronauts getting inner-space gas from hydrogen bubbles in their drinking water on their way to the moon.
• The other Tiger Woods scandal—this one involving a mysterious cheek-squeek recorded while Tiger sized up an approach shot at the 2009 PGA Buick Open.
• A scientist who built the world’s biggest whoopee cushion and lived to tell about it.
• A fart that brought down an American Airliner in 2006 . . .
 
. . . and many more wacky but true tales from the fart historian who brought you the best-selling Who Cut the Cheese? and its combustible sequel, Blame It on the Dog. This incomparable collection covering every facet of flatulence will have you feeling like a real fart smeller—er, smart feller. You’ll experience first-hand the Jungian implications of farting, the environmental import of “flatulence cards” in the carbon-offset market, and the brutally honest social commentary of a man whose office chair broadcasts his farts on Twitter. After reading this book you’ll proudly proclaim, “I fart, therefore I am.”

Jim Dawson is a perfect example of what happens when you try to teach a West Virginia hillbilly how to read ’n’ write and buy him a pair of shoes. He’s a former editor of Hustler magazine and the author of a dozen books on everything from early rock ’n’ roll to a history of the “mother” of all dirty words. He has also written liner notes for more than one hundred blues albums. Dawson lives in Hollywood, California.
