    The History of Farting for Money

    Roland, court minstrel to 12th century English king Henry II, probably had many talents. But history has recorded only one. Referred to variously Rowland le Sarcere, Roland le Fartere, Roland le Petour, and Roland the Farter, Roland really had one job in the court: Every Christmas, during the court’s riotous pageant, he performed a dance that ended with “one jump, one whistle, and one fart”, executed simultaneously. For this, Roland was gifted a manor house in Hemingstone, Suffolk, and more than 100 acres of land. For farting on cue.


    Farting in the Middle Ages was a more complicated act than in this century. Then, as now, Allen said, much of the humor in farts had to do with anxiety over uncontrollable bodies and the hilarious reminder that everyone, even the loftiest in feudal society, couldn’t escape their bodies. But there was a more sober, philosophical side to medieval farts, one that isn’t so evident today. “[Gas] is the product of decomposition, so morally, theologically, a lot of the writers in the Middle Ages saw it as the mark of death,” she says, “There was a lot of moralization about farts and shit, that they are the living daily reminder that we are going to die and that’s all we are, we are mortal, and sinful as well.”

    Good morning everyone! Stayed up until midnight.
    I think I’ve finally shaken off the virus that’s been holidaying in me the past few days.
    Kid the elder, alas, I think still has it.

    • lildoggy4u says:

      O Votermom, I hope you’re over it and feeling good for the New Year. I have been sick all through the holidays had to work also, started feeling better and thought it was over then wham, it started all over again. I blame it on the tourists flocking here to South Florida. My doc says the humid, warm environment here makes it hard to kill the virus germs.
      I’m gonna try that Liposomal Vitamin C. Anybody ever heard of it? Apparently you make it yourself and its better than IV vitamin C as far as absorbtion and it heals cancer too.???
      I’ve been lurking here all through the holidays but been too pitiful to comment.
      Happy New Year everybody! Love you all.

      • votermom says:

        have not heard of that but I have heard of IV vit C curing cancer

        good luck I hope you feel better soon too!
        when I lived in a hot humid place I relied on ginger root in soup, specially spicyish soup, to help fight viruses. And tea with honey and lemon.

      • leslie says:

        I’m sorry to hear you’ve been so ill. I rely on chicken soup from the Chinese carry out place when I’m sick. And although my son and his wife thought I was crazy because I like the food there, they – and the little girls – inhale that soup whenever they begin to feel chills or aches or headachey or anything.
        I hope you are feeling fine again very soon.

      • driguana says:

        It was a most wonderful, warm and celebratory night here in Delray Beach FL but, as you suggest, The Avenue was packed with tourists but there were lots of families, young and old, lots of different colors, it was in the 70’s and everyone had a good time. Happy New Year!

      • Somebody says:

        I’ve heard of liposomal vitamin C lildoggy, you can also buy it. Check out AHCC supplements too. It’s made from a certain kind of mushroom and has plenty of scientific studies behind it showing it kills a lot of viruses and also cancer, at least metastasised cancer. Unfortunately once the US studies were completed showing it effective, the price jumped significantly.

      glad you are starting the New Year off feeling better

    • DeniseVB says:

      Glad you’re feeling better ! You did manage to out last me by 2 hours🙂

    • piper says:

      VM and lildoggy,
      Keep slurping that chicken soup that Leslie recommended from Chinese restaurants – fresh, full of nutrients, hot and no clean-up of pots and kitchen needed.
      Feel better soon.

    Helen, you watching the Mummers?

    • helenk3 says:


      • helenk3 says:

        the string bands are on now.

        there is no other News Day parade like the mummers.
        the rose parade is beautiful but the mummers are original, talente and just plain fun.
        would love to have a TCH get together next News Years to watch the parade.

        first come the comics–MYIQ would love them
        then the fancies original and beautiful
        then the string bands talented original and just good
        the whole parade is just FUN

  14. foxyladi14 says:

    Happy 2016 to everyone!!! 😀

    You know those cardboard scratching pads for cats? Normally they last quite a while, even with several cats. Then Taggart figured out that if you attack them from the edges you can shred them in a matter of days.

    • blowme0bama says:

      Yeah, was just commenting to WifeyPoo its amazing, well I don’t that it’s “amazing”, but more than slightly interesting, that cats love corrugated cardboard scratch things. My old cat never scratched another thing in the house as soon as we got him one.

  17. Somebody says:

    So nobody at TCH has the tradition of pork, black eyed peas and greens on New Years?

  18. Dora says:

    Oh Wow! 🙂

      You nailed it Klown. Tropical dinosaurs and glacial ice ages were caused by magical humans who weren’t even there at the time.

      What a jackass, I guess he’s never heard of erosion? Without dredging I’d have ocean front property by now. The coastline is constantly being washed out to sea by the tide, water is a powerful thing. As for the flooding, it’s because the sewers drain into the creeks, rivers and bays which rise and fall with the tides. It happens all over the state, it’s cyclical and will subside soon enough. They could incur the expense of changing their drainage system, other communities have done so.

      The salt water intrusion into the drinking water is because there is too much pressure on the aquifer, it’s happening all over the state due to population increases. Limiting growth until a solution is found would be a good first step. In addition to that, how about limiting bottled water production and water permits for golf courses and other such interests? Failing that, consider desalination plants, that could be a win-win. One thing for sure a fucking carbon tax isn’t going to fix it. The only thing a carbon tax will do is make Gore and his cronies rich, along with some 3rd world countries.

      • blowme0bama says:

        Yup, they’ve found the perfect crisis, which can never be disproven, to motivate the gullible and gouge the productive class out of tax money, while enriching politicians’ donors for needless, inefficient technologies that make living more expensive.

  20. Dora says:

    Although this kind of pandering might be appealing to some voters, I think most of them will be turned off by it.

    Not being American, I don’t know the answer to this. You guys might. If Obama pushes through EA gun control, bypassing all legal channels, what happens next? What legal recourse does the citizenry have? The states? Does this mongrel get the civil war he wants, so he can declare martial law and cancel the election?

    • DeniseVB says:

      Ignore it, like he ignores our constitution. 😉

      • lyn says:

        This would be the best way to deal with it after the run on firearm and ammo sales. Seattle is taxing firearm and ammo purchases to pay for gun violence.

    • 49erDweet says:

      If anyone seriously tried to enforce that type of move you’d see the next American Revolution. Would not be pretty. Some parts of the country might seem to comply, but others emphatically wouldn’t.

      • Somebody says:

        I think my neck of the woods would rebel, but meh we’re southerners so what’s new!

        • 49erDweet says:

          I think in about 2/3’s of the country there are about 3 active, healthy, armed LE and military retirees for every cop. And it’s doubtful even half the cops would obey confiscating orders. The National Guard in most states is 2/3 comprised of those same people. That leaves the active duty military, whose use in-country would be illegal. And which is made up of people who think the same. I think it would seriously backfire.

      • blowme0bama says:

        He’d never pull it off – that is, stand up with force to any state which ignored it.

    It’s the first day of the new year and Klown has a hangover.
    Is there something new here? Nope. Boogie on.
