I remember in summer camp a bully would rat-tail everyone with a towel until someone would fess up to the farting.
"I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I expect the same from them."
Old fashioned, these days, but whatever problems the children have to deal with from the crap their parents dealt them, they CAN behave properly.
Children in those situations need lots of time, and lots of love.
Grandad always told me that 'you don't have to be smart, to be good'.
If that's too harsh, I'm sorry, but that's the way it is around papa John.
Look at dad. He is sad.
The story never says who actually farted in the car.
This jerk was my Dad. Now, I don’t touch my kids at all because I’ve learned that there are harsher penalties for serious infractions (obviously not farting, which always brings a chuckle and a reminder to say excuse me). I remember when I was a kid and my brother and I were in trouble for playing in a nearby junkyard. My mother pleaded with my Dad not to give us the belt, and he reluctantly agreed. We were given a choice. Take the belt or stay in our room all day. After about an hour stuck in the room, my brother and I opened the door and asked for the belt. We dared each other to cry as my father wailed away on our butts. In the end, we got to go back out an play. That’s all that mattered. That was the only time our Dad gave us that kind of choice. After that, it was back to the knuckle sandwich for every stupid, or imagined, mess up. So, now that I’m a parent, I do my best to keep the punishments equitable. An hour inside the room is way harsher than physical punishment to an active kid. The lesson also lasts longer. Back to this guy, though. He just sounds sadistic! Farting, really? That is truly extreme. Looking back, I think even my father would’ve just laughed at that.
Whoever denied it, supplied it. You people are tooo much :)
No... it’s not harsh.
I believe kids need discipline and nurturing both.
Don’t want to raise a #$^% liberal.
In 8th grade, I actively sought out a diet that would help me fart in science class. There were 5 of us who would have competitions.
It was the dad who farted.
After all, as everyone knows, “He who smelt it, dealt it.”
way is to simply keep a fly swatter around ~ hit a bug with it every now and then ~ never clean it. Tell the kid ‘I’ll get the fly swatter after you’ ~ now that will work ~

That’ll work...must be the grandfather to
“The girls room mirrors in school always had smears wear the girls were ‘blotting’ their lipstick and everyone was getting ticked. The Janitor says “get a bunch of them in there and I will get it stopped”...girls were getting lectured about how hard it was to clean and unsanitary etc when the janitor came in with his bucket and squeegie. Said excuse me, went to the first stall, dipped the squeegie and proceed to wash the mirrors. Never had lipstick on them again.
“Seen em like that. One of my wifes brothers ~ when he was maybe 11 or 12 ~ something like that, got up on the lazy susan in the middle of the dining room table and spun it while ausfahrting to beat the band ~ full noise effects.”
Man that takes “Crop dusting” to a professional level sport!
My 17yo son barked one in the car on highway 840 in TN about 2 in the morning. It was about twenty degrees outside and it was so bad, we HAD to pull over on the shoulder and the whole family jumped out of the car like it was going to explode! Mom and I were cussing and he just laughed and laughed. We left all four doors open for about ten minutes before we attempted to leave. I said, maybe we should just burn the car.
Have you taught her the, "pull my finger" joke yet?
“In Germany, everybody fahrts in their cars.”
Jah! There are at least three kinds of Fahrts in Germany, Einfahrt, Zufahrt and Ausfahrt. Take your pick!
Yeah, those barking spiders are really quiet but their breath is horrific.
I think that’s called “Silent, but deadly!”
it's late. I'm tired. I'm stupid.
Take your pick. even all of the above works for me right now :)
Thanks for the chuckles on this thread, folks!
I had a dog that could let some real smellers fly...funny thing was he’d get up, give us all a dirty look and walk out of the room....which made it twice as funny...
Says a lot about these kids.
If I was the dad I would sleep with one eye open, if he ever gets near these kids again.
Your kids don't live in fear of ther "father".
A spanking is now reported as national news
The pictures showed a 6-year-old, with several bruises on the buttocks, legs and thighs, and the 12-years-old, had bruises on the legs and thighs, while the 9-year-old refused to have pictures taken of the injuries for fear of retaliations if Davis found out that they reported the incident, according to reports.
Sounds like the way the EPA wants to do consulting to businesses.
My three year granddaugter passed some gas Christmas day and laughingly said “I tooted!”
Your voice has changed but your breath smells the same.
Yeah, we’d say “I just heard a barking spider”.....!
We had a guy (BIG (not an ounce of fat either) black guy) in boot camp... every night after lights out.. 10pm on the dot, he would let a HUGE one rip... all 50 of us in the barracks would bust out laughing.. EVERY NIGHT >.< ;)
My dad would say he “stepped on a frog.”
That’s funny right there.
