ManFAQ Friday: Did you actually SEE this elephant?

It’s Friday, and that means answer time! For those of you who have commented with questions from previous ManFAQs, thank you. I’m adding yours to the list of questions women have asked about men over the years, and I will answer them all in turn – to continue to demystify the more malodorous gender for those of the gentler.  Actual questions, posed by real women, and answered by a REAL man. What could go wrong?

Question:   What is it with the farting?  Pull your finger???   

Answer:   Ohhhhh, why yes thank you.  Much better. 

Sometimes it’s the elephant under the chair.  The barking tree spiders.  The duck I stepped on.  Sometimes we just need to share what we had for lunch.  Or that six-pack we just had.  But yeah, we think it’s funny to toot the trouser tuba – mostly because we’re, ya know, about 8 years old.  Also remember, Men are from Mars, and you should smell the air there.   Cosby nailed this one: he used to say that Fathers were the only ones in the house allowed to have gas.  “Oh lord, what happened in here?”  We’re still riding that elephant 40 years later, and the kids still haven’t found him under my chair. 

In my house, it’s also used as incentive for the kids to keep their rooms clean or otherwise behave at bedtime.  “Do I need to leave you something to remember me by?”  “Nooooooooooo Daddy, no!  I’ll turn the light out!  Don’t blow the butt trumpet!”   Very useful, those air biscuits!

Now you know.  Please, feel free to comment!  Also, forward any questions you’d like answered to BUMD – at –!

  1. Jeff asks “who stepped on the frog?” and Thomas is the one who lets loose before going to bed-makes saying goodnight rather abbreviated sometimes. But his favorite thing is to jump in *our* bed and let loose, for which I had to threaten dire consequences.
