I am usually impressed with your story telling abilities, but I was disappointed in your tasteless account of the girl in school trying to hold the fart. I found the strings hanging from her nose particularly disappointing since you usually don't stoop to the need to use body functions as a source of material which appears to be the current vogue of many comedians. I'm hoping this was an exception rather than a trend.
Another English major,
Sorry you were disappointed. Some neighbor boys were at the show and I did that story to impress them and of course they enjoyed it tremendously. As for bodily functions, there are great English authors I could refer you to Chaucer, Joyce, and so forth but you know all that.
