Japanese Fart Scroll

Fart jokes have been with us since we've had the ability to laugh. Fart art appears to go back quite some time as well! The Japanese scroll entitled He-Gassen (Fart Battle) dates from the Edo period, making it somewhere between 200 and 400 years old. There are more panels from the scroll at Tofugu. My personal favorite is the one with the cat, but I selected this one to show you because it's probably the tamest of the bunch. The rest contain partial nudity, meaning lots of butts. Don't laugh too loud, you'll attract attention! Link -via Metafilter

Well, if you're going to be looking at guys' butts through a hole in the wall, you deserve to be farted at. Funny how theyt put black bars on some of the images in the article, as if cartoon genitalia somehow made the scenes more offensive.
