One thought on “The most beautiful fart ever

  1. Pedant says:

    “Le Pétomane was the stage name of the French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer Joseph Pujol (1857~1945). He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to seemingly fart at will. It is a common misconception that Joseph Pujol actually passed intestinal gas as part of his stage performance. Rather, Pujol was able to “inhale” or move air into his rectum and then control the release of that air with his anal sphincter muscles.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_P%C3%A9tomane includes link to Pujol performing in “Le Pétomane du Moulin Rouge, 1900” (silent film clip) and King Henry II’s jester Roland the Farter. There is also an audio recording “Monsieur LEFIRES Le célèbre Pétomane PARIS Sept. 1904” at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tixKopGjn5s
    However, under comments: “What you hear is a clever imitation of “Mr. Lefires”, one of the stage characters of Joseph Pujol (Le Pétomane), the famous fartman. The imitator is Maurits Bonavang {Maurice Bona Vang}, a humorist from The Netherlands, who recorded a larger number of Odeon discs under the pseudonym Maurice Dumas.”
    In 1877 Thomas Edison invented the phonograph, which was capable of both recording and reproducing sound, and made his first sound recordings on sheets of tinfoil. The following year he developed a solid wax cylinder record and in 1896 formed the National Phonograph Company to mass-produce cylinder recordings of music and entertainment. In 1894, Emile Berliner’s United States Gramophone Company was selling single-sided 7-inch discs and by 1901 the Victor Talking Machine Company was producing records that played for more than 3 minutes. Odeon introduced the double-sided record in 1904. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gramophone_record
