The art of the fart: a flatulent entertainer

Posted in humor,music by weirdoftheday on April 22, 2009

I may be going overboard with this fart business, but this was too strange (and funny) to pass up.

Meet Paul Oldfield, also know as Mr. Methane. A man who puts the Art into Fart.

Profession: entertainer. 

Mr. Methane is a guy with a particularly rare talent, which he discovered by accident when he was a teenager. With the ability to breath “fore and aft” through his rear end, he was able to master the art of Controlled Anal Voicing, or so it is called. He is what is known as a performing flatulist, a title reserved for entertainers of an art form that has been observed over the centuries. 

At first when I fell upon some online videos of Mr  Methane’s public performances, I was skeptical. Can this guy really breathe through his rear end? What sort of muscle power does that require? What the heck does this guy eat?

So I educated myself by watching several videos on YouTube and have come to the conclusion that this guy’s talent seems to be pretty authentic. I was especially impressed when I saw his signature talent of farting the Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss.

Mr. Methane also has his own website, complete with links to other fart-related materials. Check it out:

We should all know by now that a fart can change the expression on a person’s face immediately, as can be seen here in this video.

Mr. Methane explains his art form and does a few impressions. Again, watch the facial expressions.
