Artsy Fartsy: Cultural History of the Fart, Volume One by Joseph Weiss

Artsy Fartsy, Cultural History of the Fart is a fascinating overview of flatulence through human civilization and society. A cough, sneeze, hiccup, stomach rumble, burp, belch, and other bodily sounds cannot compete with the notoriety of the fart. Whether encountered live and in person, or through literature, television, cinema, art, and music, it may leave a lingering memory. The history of the fart in culture and society is a seldom told but remarkable tale. Although a natural and everyday occurrence, most of human society has considered it an unacceptable offense in the presence of others. Its release has had varied consequences, from inciting wars that led to the death of thousands, to the humorous entertainment of millions.

This extensive volume provides an entertaining and informative survey of the often hidden influence of the fart on human history, culture, and society. Easy to read and colorfully illustrated, the book can be opened at random to unique entries, or read cover to cover. The knowledge gained will make the reader a fountain of cultural information that will certainly leave a lasting impression on others. A compendium of euphemisms of how to describe a fart without uttering the forbidden word, as well its translation into foreign languages, is also included. Additional famous quotations of the noted historical and cultural figures are incorporated to balance their reference to the lowly, but all-powerful, fart.
