The onomatopoeia for farting?:

 1 Vorpy, Sat, 15th Jan '11 11:42:27 AM from from from from from from

I know writing the word "fart" next to somebody's butt isn't the greatest or most entertaining, but I was dumbfounded by what a fart would normally be spelled out as. Mostly because mine are too quiet or come from the wrong area so there's no real way for me to sample my own, and every fart.mp3 I listen to is different or too long.

If fart was an onomatopoeia, how would it be spelled?

And, is there any way to make a fart humorous without having to make it a minute long or make it sound like it's fetid and soilent?
If the amount of rape that is acceptable to you is not zero, and you are not Pyramid Head, you need to seriously rethink your life.

I see the Awesomeness.
I believe it's "frrrt" although it would depend on the type.
On the humor part I guess it all depends on circumstance. Being both inappropriate to the situation and surprising.

"Poot" is reliable.

^ Sounds more like something being squeegeed against the wall.

Try 'Tooot' for the soprano-farts, or 'teeeeeeuuuooo..!' for the really squeezy farts. Or if you're wanting baritone: "PPPPPFFFFFTTTTTTTTTT"

"Braaat!" or "poot!" depending on whether it a long one or a little, — well, — poot.

James Joyce rendered it as Pprrpffrrppfff.

For what it's worth...

I always imagined it would go "ffffppbbttbbbt"

I'm very partial to pbbbbbbbbbt.
I would rather fail in my own way than succeed by someone else's.

Here you go.

I'd say *BLAART* for the big ones, *BRIPPTT* for the ones slightly higher in pitch (often caused by straining too hard), and *squeeka* for those little tiny ones.

I would go with something like this; brrrrfppfpptt

Theres sex and death and human grime in monochrome for one thin dime and at least the trains all run on time but they dont go anywhere.

Obviously it depends on the fart itself! The short, sort of squeezy ones are kind of a "fweeep, " or maybe a "thrpt!" The louder but shorter ones are more of the "pbbbthbt" type. Long ones are definitely the big, "Flaaaarrtthpt!" types.

This is a very old thread, mate. It's not generally recommended to bump a thread unless you have something new to add to the topic at hand; even then, the OP doesn't even post around these parts anymore.

Ey, he just wanted to let us know this made him happy. I say that's alright with me.
I hear it's amazing when the famous purple stuffed worm in flap-jaw space with a tuning fork does a raw blink on Hari-Kiri rock.
Cool I just noticed it was necro thread when I already posted
