Does This Mean That The Washington Post Stinks?

One of my tasks as a fake medical expert, is to keep folks in my company apprised of new scientific developments, studies and trends.  So I scour the news first thing and point out interesting, informative articles.

It’s a part of my job that I relish because it often gives me terrific ways to terrorize my relatives with news of horrible diseases that pose a 1:1,583,222,185 chance of killing them and everybody in their town.  Can you say “Ebola”?  Sure, I knew you could.

Some days, though, I hit the jackpot.  Like today, when I read a fascinating piece in the Washington Post.

Why we don’t think our own farts stink

Not only was it way more informative than any political piece penned and published in our nation’s capitol’s hometown paper, but it contained video.

 

After watching this educational video four or five times, I noticed that there was a followup video that I had to watch.Now you have to watch it too.

 

 

Thanks, Washington Post, for shedding light on at least one stinking thing.  Maybe next election cycle, you can uncover the stink in the GOP.

  1. These are the kinds of questions that keep me up at night. I should sleep better tonight.

  2. I have seen these guys do other videos & they are the best! Funny you should post this now because (of course) hubby & I were discussing why farts stink just a couple days ago (no s—!). In the hour or so I get to see him at night right now because he’s so busy at work, we both had a case of potent gas & we were trying to figure out what we might have eaten to cause the “stinks.” And I made the comment about stinky farts smelling like sulphur – little did I know!

    I gotta admit that was educational Elyse. To think it is a part of your job to find and circulate such material – if only we could all have such jobs. Ha! A fart-sational post.

  4. Farted 101. Ever been around someone that always smells like a fart. Best they keep their mouths closed.

  6. It seems you have found your “Holy Grail” as a fake medical expert. You will have no end to the trauma you can inflict on your family with this knowledge. For the rest of us you have given us a golden opportunity to discuss farts legitimately. I like it!

    • I am not sure if this enhances my fake medical expert claims or my actual expert patient claims. Possibly both.

      But I’m pretty sure it isn’t my knowledge of farts that traumatizes my family, Michelle. It’s more when I put that knowledge to, ummmm, use.

  10. Yet more evidence that we as a society have totally and completely jumped the shark. The internet has completely destroyed mainstream media.

  11. Perhaps the GOP ought to consider a name change: Methaneists?

    Doesn’t matter what they’re called; they’re still stench.

  16. I can’t believe I just spent five minutes watching videos about gas. And not the automotive kind. Thank you for that. I also now understand why I’m more sensitive to smells. It’s because I’m less socially adventurous. Jeez, introverts just can’t get a break…

  17. Finally, something useful in the mainstream media. By the way, I am absolutely repulsed by the smell of my own farts. You see, my digestive process is painfully slow, so…never mind.
