Excessive bloating and gas is a problem with IBS.I am rumbling even as I type.This would be a good place to start a guide for relieving the pressure(?) of this socially unacceptable occerance.I am very confused.I have to admit the bean scene from Blazing Saddles is one of my favorites.I am overweight but my but is in great shape from the workout it has gotten through the years.You know the one"ohpleasegodletmeholdthisonetillicanget tosomewheretoletgo"isometric butt workout. I will go with the first rule.ALWAYS warn co workers of the SBD gas.A True friend and professional would not let you go into the red alert zone without protectivegear.ie:gasmask,perfume,lysol or scarf.Love Pattee

Pattee,Now you're talkin my language! I am one of the worst people for laughing my head off at the act of farting! (ok, so I'm not in the high society catagory!)My mother is a fabulous person, & she raised us(all 6!) with a lot of humor. (guess you'd need a lot of humor with 6 kids!). Anyway, she deffinitely has "the gift" for blowing a tune & until just a few years ago I honestly believed SHE invented the phrase "PULL MY FINGER"! sass

oh.. my .. god.. thatis sooo funny.I think part of the reason farting is so funny to meis because we all do just some of us more than others.Just some people pretend they dont fart and if they did it SURE wouldnt stink.HAHAHAHAHA.Love Pattee Rule 2 ALWAYS release quietly and in a large group,then look puzzeled and wonder where that odor came from like everybody else.KEEP EM GUESSING!!

People don't believe me when I tell them how much fun we have on this ibs bb. But bathroom humor was always big in my house growing up. To this day, with all of us in our 40s, a family dinner isn't complete until somebody brings up the traditional bathroom conversation (OK - you have YOUR traditions, we have ours). Being brought up in the upper class family I was, my father never really felt like he'd farted unless he shared it with someone, literally holding it until we could all feel blessed with his special "gift." (No kidding). To this day, however, my mother has *never* farted. It is a family mystery we will probably never solve. My father's farts and cheshire grins, followed by my mother's disgusted retort "Oh, Fred!" shall be one of my fondest childhood memories.In MY family, I am also legend. But I am far too delicate to discuss this in public

Oh, my God, ladies. You have GOT to have Charlie email you his audio-visual on the anniversary of Pork & Beans. I haven't laughed that hard in at least 10 years. I would send it to you, but it went bye-bye with my old computer.

I think I got rid of all my gas by reading these postings.Ive even made my dog miserable today.Its usually the other way around. When I was in the air force Stationed in England,every Wednesday was bean day.Everybody took turns bringing the bean dish of the day.Then they would time to see who farted first. I was appropriatly disgusted.Then it was my turn to bring the beans.Try working on a jet engine afterburnerand being behind one of the guys I worked with .The sound echoes and you cant get out of there fast enough.I thought about wearing my chemical warfare gear every wednesday even when we werent on alert.Okay Rule 3 After the gass is passed move quickly away from the area.But not too quickly So others won't know it's you.Love Pattee

You are all too funnyI had my own hang upsGrowing up we were never allowed to say the word 'fart'. We had to say the word flatulencs and we were instructed to go into another room if we had to pass gas. Also, we never really talked about our bathroom habits and if we had a bowel movement my moher would make us go back in and scrub the toilet with the brush. For so long I probably walked around very consipated and full of unreleased gas--no wonder my intestines are so messed up.
