Gas Passers Sitting Happy (Consider it the anti-whoopee cushion)
Fox News ^ | 16 Jan 2002 | Amy C. Sims

Posted on 01/16/2003 5:52:52 AM PST by UKCajun

It's the GasBGon flatulence filter, and it's helping provide relief for thousands of gas passers who have cleared rooms or blamed the dog for far too long.

"People tell us, 'Thank you for giving my life back. Now I can go out in public again,'" Sharron Huza, the cushion's creator, said in an interview. "They'll bring it with them to the movie theatre, to work, in the car or on the airplane."

Huza said more than 1,000 cushions have been sold in just over a year on the market. The company has been approached by people interested in taking GasBGon products into Belgium, Britain, Asia and Canada, according to James Huza, the company president.

"Second-hand flatulence knows no borders," he said.

The Huzas, a husband-and-wife team, say the cushion uses charcoal liner technology to filter out both malodorous smells and head-turning noises. The fabric is washable, and a removable foam filter muffles sounds while the activated carbon absorbs odors...

...Cushions can take about 450 toots before they need a filter change, and come in several fashion patterns with names like "The Musical Solo" and "Silent But Deadly."...

Why would anyone want to deprive themselves the inherent comedic value of a strategically released SBD only moments before the elevator doors open?

Depends on an individual's TPD (toots per day) rating.

Ah, LSMFT(loud, stinky, malodorous fart traps) Just what the public ordered. This could be right up there with the Cow Dung Gas plant, as a benefit to mankind.

Could you get us a picture? I'm trying to imagine......... Is it a pillow you sit on? Something you wear? Or (Heaven forbid) something you insert? I have several of those hard-to-buy-for folks on my gift list that might like one of these.

Some things just can't be miniaturised. Besides what on earth would ERI and Ralegh talk about if they had one of these contraptions. Just cod pieces?

"Fart underwear are next... "

Q: How can you tell when a woman is wearing pantyhose?

A: When she farts, her ankles swell up.

From the GasBGon website:

Yet, clinical studies show that the average person produces one to three pints of gas and passes gas 14 times a day.

Call it 2 pints per day x 250 million people x 365 days per year = 182,500,000,000 pints per year.

With all that energy, we may have a solution for OPEC.

What's the fun in that? Clearing a room is part of the enjoyment of letting a SBD rip... First one that smelt it, delt it, dont'cha know...

My dog needs this invention.

Oh, yeah.

Suuurre, it's the dog that needs it.

Always, blame it on the poor dog, they can't talk, they can't argue, just blame it on the poor beast.

Heh, heh, heh, if my poor little chihuahuas farted nearly half as much as I blame on them, they could keep this company in business, but I'm here to tell ya, when they do fart, my gosh, clear the doors, cause the room will empty fast!

Whew! Smells like rancid tuna fish with garlic sauce. I don't think anything can filter that out.
