To the asshole who farted on the 8 a.m. D line to downtown: While I was surrounded by people with no hope for escape, you decided to crop-dust everyone on the overcrowded prison of a bus this morning. Fuck you. Learn how to take a shit before you leave the house for work like the rest of us. I'm sure you thought it was pretty funny to spray your ass juice cloud around for everyone to deal with. Thank fucking God I sprayed Kenzo on my cowl neck before I left so I could somewhat escape your fart stank. Next time, get off the bus and go take a shit. GROSS!

I'd rather smell the farts than the idiots who bathe in cologne. Farts waft away after a few minutes. Cologne sticks around forever.

Oh come on guys!! Be nice.. Farts on a bus are awful. I have almost barfed before in that situation.

I can be sympathetic with this one, being a frequent bus rider. If you're stuck on a crowded bus, it is NO fun to be stuck with a farting fellow passenger! (Or an unwashed one for that matter).

I think that's a valid I Anon, personally.

I'd rather not smell anything on the bus, but a bus farter is the second lowest form of city dweller - Elevator farters are the lowest (really, you can't hold that for 5 floors?)

Silent, but deadly.

I love to fart!

Speaking as an unusually flatulent person, I feel it necessary to point out that farts can escape at any time, regardless if the person needs to take a shit or not. If Anon genuinely doesn't know this, I'd like to suggest she work on improving her colon health. Maybe take some probiotics? A lack of healthy gut flora is correlated with numerous poor health outcomes, including cancer.

Kenzo? Cowl? It seems I am, as the kids say, totally not with it.

Too bad the lethal fart in question on Metro couldn't have been bottled and shipped to Rick Santorum, the self-appointed Rolling Brownout King.

This shit takes time and can't be rushed. Wahh-wah!

Here's to a CLEAN BREAK!

The way to deal with farts on a bus is to make your brain think it is the aroma of a fine pot of chili.

Of all the petty injustices which should be written about in this column, this would be among the pettiest. What, did you just have to submit something? Was it a slow week at Stranger HQ, and this was the best they could give us?

I really like to eat my zit juice, especially the really hard stringy ones. Sometimes my roommate has good ones too and I want to eat his. Is the zit juice had for you?

Well, Reswin, if you can't handle discussion about "first world" issues, why not move to some "third world" shit hole? Seriously, comments like your are worse than useless, they are pretentious pap, generally from people that would run crying to mommy if ever they found themselves in a "third world" situation. Kiss my ass, Reswin, we live in Seattle and it's appropriate to talk about Seattle issues, like asswipes named "Reswin" who fart on buses. Seriously, Reswin, go fuck yourself - if you are not doing so already.

@21: I'm 100% positive that I'm not the only one who finds "comments like your (sic) are worse than useless" deliciously ironic.

I may be the mystery farter you refer to on the D line this morning. You would be the babe in the cut off Carharts,the flannel cut off at the shoulders and Dock Martins, am I right ! When you reached for the overhead handrail and your armpit hair sprung out, I nearly busted a nut, but when your "I'm just back from Paris" aroma assaulted my nostrils well, you can only imagine. I had no choice in the matter, my ass took over and fought back. In the future you will experience more favorable results if you shower a day but not more than two before you use public transit and by all means try that new fad that is sweeping the nation, Deodorant.

I would think you seattle folks would be complaining about the useless asswipes waddling about REEKING of pot in tight, public spaces like the bus.

Normal folks would.

25 comments in and no one has informed poor blind I,A that buses have windows which open.

Get on bus. Bus stinks. Stay near the front, slam open a window or top vent. Yell to the back "Hey it fuckin stinks in here, someone pop a window please.". Real rocket science.

Perfume soaked cowl necks must kill brain cells.

@28 You have to understand the Kshama Sawant crowd aspire to be French, and smell like them. So while farting in public is still "bad", smelling like rank pigs that need a bath is homage to Jack Kerouac.

A few years ago, my wife and I had front-row seats to see one of my favorite bands. Because the tickets were a gift from the band's manager, they were especially appreciated. About halfway through the show, someone started floating the absolute worst butt muffins of all time. I mean these were paint-peeling, vomit-inducing, eye-watering, gut-wrenching, mustard-gas, military-grade farts. This went on for almost 20 minutes with each volley being worse than its predecessor. People around us were beginning to verbally complain over the sound of the band. Many decided to leave the front row, but since this was one of my favorite bands, and the tickets were a gift, I was damned if I was going to move. I buried my nose in the crook of my arm and just kept rockin'. After the show, I said to my wife, "Jesus Christ! I can't believe the asshole that kept farting during the show and wouldn't leave! Didn't that gross you out?!?" She just looked at me sheepishly and said, "...sorry."

just fart back this sounds like that kind of conversation anyway

Posted by Mx.JordanHill on May 6, 2014 at 8:39 PM · Report this
my brother picked up an expression from somewhere when we were kids: Why fart and waste it when you can belch and taste it?

Good advice for the bus-farter if you ever find out who it was.
