    Farting, breaking wind, cutting the cheese, or gas. The English language has numerous words for flatulence and this is even before we devolve into the subcategories that make up the genre. Whatever you call it, farting is a taboo act, but it is also a source of fascination. It’s not for nothing that there is a popular children’s book series called Fart Squad or that the preview of the most recent installment of the Alvin and the Chipmunks dynasty led with the punchline, “Sorry, pizza toots.” Today farting is something for which we perfunctorily ask forgiveness, but in the past...
  • French Left Outraged Online Over Massacre of Camembert Cheese

    French people are in uproar after a picture was posted online of a Camembert cheese that had clearly been cut in a flagrant violation of fromage etiquette. The post on on the French page of the site Reddit was titled "How my mother cuts Camembert..."

"We've guillotined people for less than that," wrote Raleur Francais. Another wrote "... well you just can't choose...

    Live television has its drawbacks. A big one is that you never know when an accident might happen. Exhibit “A”: Monday night’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” on MSNBC. While talking to Maddow’s audience about jobs and unemployment, Rep. Barney Frank, the Massachusetts Democrat, might have accidentally let one rip, so to speak. (h/t Bob’s Blitz) You be the judge: Rachel, I think we have to figure out what we do from here and you’re right, we’ve got to get some jobs [... noise …]

    Six months ago, Free Republic was riding high, and I was proud to be a part of it. It was coming off having blown the cover off of Dan Rather’s use of forged memos against the President. The President was well on his way to winning re-election. It was a great time to be a Freeper. However, things have changed. It started with the justifiable removal of ALIPAC. I supported that move by Jim Robinson, but the ugliness directed towards Alberto Gonzales. He was accused of everything under the sun, and Senator Mel Martinez was viciously attacked for speaking Spanish...
