Overview

We've told you HOW TO SHIT IN THE WOODS. We've taken you UP SHIT CREEK. Now, we dare to ask the eternal question...WHO CUT THE CHEESE? Which is to say, what exactly is a fart? Why do we do it? Why do we hide it when we do it? And why do we find farts so darn funny? A cut above anything else on the subject, this book really lets go and tells all, getting to the bottom of these mysteries. Author Jim sniffs out a load of historical and scientific fart tales, then offers the kind of fun facts you'll be dying to let slip at social occasions, in chapters like "Fart Facts That Aren't Just Hot Air," "Gone with the Wind" (on famous movie farts), and "Le Petomane & the Art of the Fart" (on the most famous windbag in history). From fact to fiction to frivolous flatulence, this book is unquestionably a ripping good read.

The reviewer below should not have picked up this book because of his obvious prejudice against examining flatulence. Those, however, who find the topic interesting (if not a downright blast!) will benefit greatly from this thoroughly researched and yet hilariously funny book. Pull my finger!

I don't understand why anyone would like to read a book discussing the subject of flatulence. Maybe some enjoy the topic, but I for one would rather read something I call a book and NOT a bunch of paper thrown such as this.

Hahaha this book is very funny!!I know everyone is so uncomfortable to talk about passing gas, but is really a normal bodily function that everyone does including, yes the football jocks, cheerleaders and pretty much anything with an intestinal system. Who cut the Cheese? is a really good book on explaining it!!

A VERY INTERESTING BOOK ON A HARD TO DISCUSS TOPIC. YOU GET A BETTER UNDERSTANDING THAT PASSING GAS IS NATURAL AND ALSO HISTORIC.
