I would like to say right away that this has NEVER happened to me.
(So don’t worry, this wasn’t inspired by you.)
Today’s strip has no purpose other than a cheap gag that points out the double standards we sometimes have as men. It’s not something I go around spreading or encouraging, but I would be lying if I said I never accidentally let one sneak by when I wasn’t expecting it. It’s like that surprise burp that comes up in a split second. You just can’t always feel one coming. But it’s expected from men. We grunt, scratch, and smell. From women, on the other hand, we seem to have this ideal notion that they are incapable to making that sound. So in those rare moments when we do hear a woman toot (because ladies don’t fart), it shocks us to the core. Deep inside we know women have the same functions as men, but in our minds it’s not something we like to think about.
