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.
"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"

@OP: Come from the wrong area?
"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...
Plappppt? Pthbbbbt? Thzzdt? Flarpt? Fwint? Plunt?
That wouldn't have happened to be in one of his letters to his wife, would it?
Nope, the end of the Sirens episode in Ulysses.
I always imagined it would go "ffffppbbttbbbt"
I'm very partial to pbbbbbbbbbt.
I tend to go with "ptttthhhhbbbbttt".
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
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.
(squwweeeee) for the small ones and BRRRRRTTTTHHHHAAAARFFFFFFFSSS for the explosive one and 'squiff' for the silent ones
Like Nightcrawler's teleportation sound
I just want you people to know that I found this via Google. My sides hurt. Thank you.
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.
Cool I just noticed it was necro thread when I already posted
