Bubble & Fart

Chris is working in London all week
I worked last night
Before he left we ate huge plates of bubble & squeak at the kitchen table
And so I was farting like a baby hippo at work all night 
It got so bad that around 3 am I had to  make up a reason to collect some patient belongings from the wards in order 
to have a crafty flurry of farts in the hospital lifts!
I am off to bed covered in dogs and a cat now....
So I will leave you all with the above video 
A delightfully clever IKEA  commercial

  3. The frequency with which you refer to 'blowing off' leads me to conclude that you must have developed the practice into an art form by now. Perhaps you can make a lucrative sideline out of this rare and untapped 'talent' in the manner of Le Petomane? - though wouldn't care to be in your vicinity when you're 'rehearsing'!

    1. Perhaps I should start to eat charcoal?

    2. You could do that, J.G. On the other hand, remember that a certain Herr Hitler also had flatulence problems (I make NO further comparison!), at which his doctor most bizarrely recommended a strict vegetarian diet. Speaking as being one myself (a veggie, not a Nazi) I cannot recommend it as a cure.
      (Sprouts and baked beans with my cheese 'n onion quiche tonight!)

    5. I do TRY to avoid letting rip or even sneaking one out when there's a cat nearby - just as I'm sure that you do with your dogs (+ cat). 'Twould be most impolite, not to say cruel, to impose on them with their heightened olfactory sense.

  5. When working night in a psychiatric hospital I had cause to visit one of the wards if two particular male nurses were working together it was possible to almost see a green miasma floating about two foot from the floor , if I had had a gas mask I would definitely have worn it lol

  7. on occasion, I have had to step outside the office and let the stink fly off in the breeze, much like those t-shirts in the commercial.

  21. I only heard Watson fart once. It was super quiet and I heard this very high tiny whistle, his head went up and he looked very surprised. l was laughing, as he was trying check out where the hell that noise came from !
    Dogs are so funny.

  23. In our early married years I made Bubble and squeak for the wife, she told me that if I ever made it again it would be a short marriage as we nearly blew the bed sheets off. She does however love my Yorkshire Pudding and now makes a perfect one herself.

  30. I love brussels sprouts and bubble and squeak. I also love baked beans and those crunchy little dried and salted bean and pea mixes you can buy and I drink fizzy water. Unlike Raybeard, however, I make no attempt to avoid releasing the noxious gases when my dogs are about. They can beat me hands down (paws down?) when it comes to stinking up a room!
