Rock the flatus

To The Editor:

Upon reading Joe Loeffler's letter ("Flatulence is Not Funny," March 6, 2008), I was inclined to take a gander at Diana Sevanian's article on the ever-so-popular act of passing gas. I thought it might actually be something offensive. After all, what red-blooded American male doesn't enjoy the occasional poot?

Alas, I was neither appalled nor offended. She hit the nail right on the head. I am a 22-year-old male. Naturally I find it hilarious when a friend or I lean over and blast one that is comparable to a small bomb.
But this letter is not so much about fanny burps and how, as Diana correctly stated, everyone does it.

One of the most emphasized aspects of the journalism program at California State University, Fullerton is the future of journalism and newspapers. With so many papers devoting more time to putting their articles and photos online, printed newspapers are in jeopardy. It's safe to say that most of the publications in the country are taking broad steps with multimedia in order to keep up with the heavy hitters in the industry.
The collateral damage, or change, is that the content of newspapers is changing. While it's inadvertent and happening at a slow pace, it's inevitable.

And if I have completely misdiagnosed the reason for this article running, it was still opinion. It was one woman who finally had the cojones to accept that everyone farts. She embraced it, and wrote about it. If you don't like it, don't read it.

The article was funny. I challenge you to keep a straight face the next time you blow a hole in your panties.
