Have you ever walked into someone’s bedroom and became immediately aware that they had been farting all night and they are badly in need of ventilation? That’s happened to me this morning.
Or maybe you got stuck in an elevator full of strangers and someone let a ripe stink bomb rip like chemical warfare. Perhaps you got stuck waiting in a long line and you really could not run away or risk embarrassing the random funky person. Or maybe you were like me and quietly rolled out a stench grenade while handing money to a poor cashier.
If you’ve had any experience with third party flatulence, you will find this track relatable. I remember hearing this on morning-drive radio while heading to high school back in 1990. It’s actually a quazi-parody of MC Hammer’s “Let’s Get It Started”. Compare for yourself!
“Somebody Farted” was released both on a 12″ EP and on a full length album. I happen to own the EP. Here’s a photo. The lead single was actually “Hair or Weave”. In my opinion “Somebody Farted” is a lot funner.
A ridiculous number of National Days are all being observed concurrently today. Spending an hour on each of them would eat up your entire day!
Buckle up, here we go!
Internationally it’s Jazz Day.
In the USA, we’ve got National Sarcoidosis Day, National Rebuilding Day, National Raisin Day and Oatmeal Cookie Day. Plus it’s also National Military Brats Day, Kiss of Hope Day, and Bubble Tea Day. It’s even National Bugs Bunny Day as well as National Adopt a Pet Day.
It’s Honesty Day as well, so please know that this is all indeed true.
All of these Days offer great themes for me to choose from in deciding on the song of the day. But wouldn’t you know it, we are actually observing yet another National Day today. That’s right. It’s National Sense of Smell Day.
The Dead Milkmen have a lot to say about smells.
The song first appeared on their album Beelzebubba in 1988.
Recently someone posted a karaoke version of this song. Since the ability to carry a tune is completely unnecessary to perform this song, I challenge everyone reading this to record themselves singing it.
Upload it to YouTube. Send me the link in the comments! Have a smell day!
