150 Different Words For 'Fart'

Posted: Updated:

In a world full of big cynicism and seismic discord, it's time to celebrate and honor the little things that connect us. Sometimes those little things are random acts of kindness and generosity. Sometimes those little things are random acts of the digestive tract. And we're here to talk about the latter.

Farting is part of the universal human experience. Farting knows no borders: every person from every corner of the globe breaks wind. (The average person toots 14 times per day, in case you were wondering.) But most importantly, farting is just funny. And in this collective modern malaise that clouds our outlook with negativity, it's time to break out of our funk by laughing at another kind of funk.

This is what motivated us to write our latest book, The Fart Tootorial: Farting Fundamentals, Master Blaster Techniques, and the Complete Toot Taxonomy. And to spread the other kind of good vibrations.

Before you dismiss fart humor has low brow and juvenile, remember that Ben Franklin once famously remarked, "Fart proudly." And the great Louis C.K. more recently stated, "You don't have to be smart to laugh at farts, but you have to be stupid not to." In fact, the world's oldest recorded joke is a Sumerian knee-slapper from 1900 B.C. about, you guessed it, ancient air biscuits. Here's the translation: "Something which has never occurred since time immemorial; a young woman did not fart in her husband's lap." (guess you had to be there.)

Fart humor is alive and well today. For proof, look no further than the thousands of tooting euphemisms uttered every day. Below are our favorite 150 fart terms for your reading and ripping pleasure. We hope you can work a few into your daily routine and share the positivity--one pulled finger at a time.
