So I can't find any more info on the copyright stuff for the book (it was published in 1984 - is there a statute of limitations on something that's 26 years old?), I think I'll continue on with my fart posts....We're still on the "B" farts, so here is today's enlightening post!
A silent fart identified by odor alone. Usually an adult fart, occurring while the adult is driving a car or has a front seat passenger who farts. The Burning Brakes Fart actually does smell a little like burning brakes and seems to hang around longer than most farts. Which gives whoever farted a chance to make a big show of checking to see if the emergency brake has been left on. When he finds it hasn't you know who farted. A common automobile fart.
And by the way, Happy Cinco de Mayo! May all your farts today smell like burning brakes!
