See, all it took was one good fart joke and this thread is back to it's old form.

And lest ye think I made it up:

Did dinosaur 'emissions' help warm the prehistoric climate? (+video) - CSMonitor.com

Good luck,

Jim

Le Petomane

Not to hijack this thread any further, but the time is ripe to squeeze out a few words about Joseph Pujol (accent on Pu), popularly known by his stagename of ‘Le Petomane’, (from the French ‘Pet’ meaning fart and ‘maniaque’): Fartist Extraordinaire.

By dint of long, hard and often painful practice, the mid 1890s were witness to Pujol having gained such astonishing control over his sphincter muscles that he could play delightfully passable renditions of popular French songs through his arse, like some flatulent flautist. This was not his only accomplishment. Another trick was to emit farts with sufficient force to extinguish lighted candles at a distance of several feet. His repertoire included an imitation of the San Francisco earthquake and an authentic sounding, 21-gun salute.

Not surprisingly, his spectacular prowess made him the sensation of the Parisian Music Hall. From 1892, he starred at the Moulin Rouge, where he out-grossed even the legendary Sarah Bernhardt and became the highest paid performer of his generation. Among his audiences were King Leopold II of the Belgians, Edward Prince of Wales, and Sigmund Freud (who went on to develop the theory of anal fixation). During a court case involving a rival fraudulent female farter, who had tried to steal his act, he even gave a demonstration of his unlikely art in front of a judge.

The sight and sound of a grown man farting loudly on stage proved so utterly hilarious, many members of the audience were convulsed with hysterical laughter to such an extent they had to be helped by trained nurses who were fortunately on hand to pass around smelling salts. It was perhaps only a rumor by management that ordained priests would be on standby to administer Last Rites to those who died laughing.

Petomania could well have been the unacknowledged precursor of Beatle-mania. Pujol made phonographic recordings and these early examples of what would nowadays be called novelty records sold in the thousands. However, the First World War put an abrupt end to his act, when loud explosions lost popularity.

Sadly Pujol passed into unjustified obscurity, gone with the wind as it were. Such a prodigiously gifted farter must be rare if not unique and he is surely worthy of a place in the pantheon of the all-time Greats, not to mention the Guinness Book of Records.

In the interest of exploration, one may pursue more information of Le Petomane, a wonderful example of the timelessness of French culture, at Le Pétomane - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Thoughts of making funny noises with sphincters, naturally leads to memories of Victor Borge, a Danish classical pianist who made funny noises with his mouth—phonetic pronunciation: Victor Borge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sphincters lead to Sigmund Freud which leads to Henry Miller and then to Big Sur where one can see this behind Miller's one time home:

August 1962. My parents and I were just on our way from Northern NY State to Seattle, WA for the World's Fair when we heard the announcement of Marilin Monroe's passing. We were driving a 1959 6-cyl Chevrolet BelAire, pulling a brand new, very overloaded 17-foot S.O.B. travel trailer. That trip was my first exposure to the wonders of the vagabond life on the road. As a 15 year old and too young to drive, I was in charge of navigation. When we returned, that trailer became my refuge. We never took another trip with it, and a few years later, my dad sold it.

Wikitedium regularly leaves out historically significant references. This is why one should also always consult the Tube of You when doing their scholarly research.

Now for something a little more Airstream related: The Campfire ...

When your Airstream dealer keeps you on hold, you get angry

When you get angry, you go blow off steam

When you go blow off steam, accidents happen

When accidents happen, you get an eye-patch

When you get an eye-patch, people think you’re tough

When people think you’re tough, people want to see how tough

When people want to see how tough, you wake up in a roadside ditch

Don’t end up in a roadside ditch.

Ouch!

Aha, Hijacking ... seems to be the thread for me today .

It's so very easy to hijack a thread, because a thread takes the flow of a normal conversation ... one thing leads to another, it's sort of like a campfire chat. Talking about KOA's, leads to Good Sam, leads to thunderstorms, leads to train whistles, leads to good places to stay, not so good places to stay and experiences on the road ...

If someone hijacked a thread I started with this normal progression from topic to topic ... well, I think I'd want to meet up with them on the road ... birds of a feather and all that .., Wendy
