Americans Are Embarrassed By Farts, Says Least Surprising Poll Ever

But we didn't realize coughing and farting simultaneously was such a problem.

The human body is remarkable in many ways and remarkably disgusting in many others.

That's the straight poop of a new survey by Wrangler that asked 2,000 Americans which "bodily offenses" they find most embarrassing.

According to the "Pee Yoo" poll, 69 percent admit experiencing being embarrassed by some kind of bodily offense at least three times each month.

Why is a company known for jeans suddenly interested in this stuff? It seems it's just released a pair of moisture-wicking jeans designed to reduce "swamp ass," the unpleasant feeling when sweat collects in the butt and crotch area.

It's a condition 30 percent of the respondents said they've suffered through. 

Here are the top 10 most embarrassing bodily offenses, based on the disgusting data:

  • 1 Loud Farts
    56 percent of survey takers are embarrassed by their loud farts.

And don't think you can count on other people to help you avoid humiliating situations. 

According to the survey, 87 percent said if they were unaware they were doing something embarrassing, they'd want other people to tell them.

But only 20 percent say they always tip people off when they see something someone might not know.
