Thread Name: Farting in Public
Subject: RE: Farting in Public
Without question the most hilarious work by Mark Twain is a piece called "1601: A Fireside Conversatyion in the Time of the Tudors" (or something close to that - it's been a long time since I read it). The story line is quite simple: a horrendous fart at the table, followed by a round of denials. If you do, or ever did, think a fart can be funny, you might appreciate Twain's artistry.
