Good for a laugh

My children are in the basement playing a video game in which you make up your own characters. In so doing, they are laughing the kind of laughs that completely take your breath away. Still, somehow, between the massive spasms of hilarity, they manage to spit out a few words. What are these words?

Fart.
Megafart.
Butt.

What else could possibly be so funny? Nothing is funnier than a fart.

Kia ora Amy,
I always lie in bed at night with my 5 year old and read a story. When we finish I then read it funny for him. Invariably that means adding a fart or two in the words someplace and he laughs uproariously. My wife thought it a bit too much till she saw his face and enjoyment. Kids and words. Well writtn. Kia ora.
Ka kite ano,
Robb

Robb, we always did some funny reads, too, when the kids were younger. That usually meant reading the book backwards. The Very Hungry Caterpillar was great to read backwards: Hungry still was he but. Sounds like Yoda or someone from northern England a few hundred years ago.

It was on Mandrake Road that I became a fartologist, under the direction of the Fart Family.
