    I toot. He farts. in my mind, tooting is when you are unsuccessful at doing it quietly but you tried. When you fart, there is no attempt at disguising haha…why my mind has it this clearly broken down i have no idea.

    @FortiesFlare:  In general I say ‘fart’; if I was trying to be more proper (eg if I had excessive flatulence and needed to see a doctor (which doesn’t apply lol)) I would probably refer to it as ‘flatulence’ or ‘wind’.

    One of my best friends wasn’t allowed to say ‘fart’ as a child lol; she had to call it a ‘bottom burp’; which I actually find kinda gross!

    @barbie86:  Agreed; that’s definitely more gross!

     @FortiesFlare:  “fluff”…how cute! 

    Tangent here, but my sister and I convinced our younger brothers (they’re much younger) that women didn’t fart, as in it just wasn’t a female bodily function. It was pretty funny while it lasted! I think my mom or one of us accidentally let one slip and then they figured it out.

    Haha I am such a child…i laughed way too much at this. I usually just say fart, but in my family anything goes! We are kind of a gross family regarding bodily functions lol

    It’s much cuter in Korean, 방구 or “bangoo.”

    When I was a kid my parents used the word “duck” as an alternative to “fart”.  As in “Who ducked?  Did you duck?”

    I refer to it as a fart usually. Sometimes my husband and I will say that there are geese in the room.

    @FortiesFlare:  I call it “stomach problems.”  And then I say “Pardon me” if I accidentally have stomach problems in front of other people.

    @FortiesFlare:  growing up we couldn’t say fart,we said pass gas. I do say fart mainly when speaking of someone else(EW,did you fart!?) and pass gas when it about myself( oops,I have gas,sorry!). Lol but I also say Pass gass around my niece. Fart still is a little vulgar to me lol

    Sometimes I call it “pooting”  Did you poot?  Other times I call it farting.  I have to say “excuse me” if it happens in front of my husband or he gets all offended.  (he does extend the same courtesy to me if he does it…even if it’s over the phone so I can’t hear or smell it, lol)
