Has this ever happened to anyone? "What is the proper tipping etiquette when a fart is involved?"

        That is absolutely a riot. And a very nice discussion about tipping to boot. Thanks for sharing!

          Well, it seems that it was a "freep," and not a "flugablast," so a 5% deduction should be adequate. For a flugablast, then a 10% deduction would be required by the Geneva Convention by-laws.

            "Fart proudly!' said Benjamin Franklin, one of the Founding Farters.

              I would lay 5-1 odds that their attitude would be different if their food server was a tattooed ex-con biker named Bubba.

                One of the comments made concerning this video were directed at L.A. Reid "enjoying the smell of a good fart". See him at 1:39 ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZ0t8a... and then tip accordingly.

                  Let's remember that there's a reason that farts smell: It's so deaf people can enjoy them, too.
