Why is gas so much more repulsive in Europe than the U.S?
Edited on Sat May-29-04 08:40 PM by Teddy_Salad
Really, the farts over there reek to high heaven compared to the ones here.

Geographical or culinary? :shrug:

4. Oh yeah! It's the cabbage, of course.
But what about the French? They're rather stinky too.

Could it be the escargot?

5. Yes.
The escargot, and the weird chinese food.

And the half-cooked hamburger. . .

Need I go on. . .?

8. The pink toilet paper...
The chicory in the coffee...

The horny drunks on the Metro. . .

AW I CAN'T DO THIS!! I :loveya: FRANCE!!! Really. . .

I think the escargot and the hamburger pretty much explain the gas, anyway! :P

Not that I ever smelled any!

I am NOT a France-basher, get that, mes amies?

16. Chicory?
Is that why their coffee tastes so bad? I don't think I've ever had a good cup of coffee there. Everything else however, tres magnifique!

18. Often, the coffee is blended with chicory to cut costs.

They don't advertise this fact, of course.

And it certainly isn't done everywhere....
Again -- I AM /not/ A FRANCE-BASHER!! :hi:

19. Their coffee is so thick, huh?
It looks more like gravy than coffee and the coffee cup, mug thingys are tiny.

Is that so they don't have to oui too often? ;)

9. And all that smelly cheese
They smell funny already, I don't think a trip through a digestive tract improves them.

21. Je pense que non!
J'aime beaucoup le Camembert. C'est bon!

Le fromage suisse est pour les personnes primitifs!

:P

3. My husband can beat any European any day in the gas department
His nuclear chili farts are so noisome they have literally driven me downstairs, with him stoically remaining behind while expressing proud incredulity.

10. Thanks!
I love this site. I don't often participate but it's on my screen at work pretty much most of the day.

BTW, I have banned his chili from the house. He only makes it when I'm not around. I think he does it just to see if he can still pass muster, so to speak.

26. Oh geez...
Well duh, the boy suffix threw me off. Hmmmm. I don't know how much donkeys fart but if they pack the same punch as my husband does on occasion, we could easily produce a biological weapon.
MooPie comes from our hamster, appropriately named Moo since he looks like a little cow.

27. So the only remaining thing for the USA to be proud of are your...
farts?
I feel like I simply can't take away your last hope :-)
Reeking to heaven in Germany,
Dirk

29. This thread is hilarious. But, someone should do one about pets.
Flatulence applies to them as well, eh? You could compare cats to dogs all over the world!

I know, just what we need, another kitty thread!

:D

31. Old Yiddish proverb...
"Every man loves the smell of his own farts."
