A fine little source book to while away time in the loo. The info about Le Petomane is tru, and old footage of his performances can be found on youtube.com. ( )

The cover art gives an academic air to lowbrow humor like:
There was an old doctor called Bart
Who encouraged his patients to fart.
He said the relief
Was usually brief
But terribly good for the heart. ( )

First words
This book began as a collection of rhymes discovered in an inner drawer of a cedar chest left to me by my Grandmother, Emily, widdow of the late and hardly lamented Sir Gustave Bart, Surgeon-General in the Prince of Wales Light Horse at the time of Beersheba whose most frequently given medical advice to soldier and settler alike was: "Treat yourself to a good fart!"
