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?

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.

^ 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.

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.

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.
