It is a chemical thing dad!
Mine cant either.
Those microbes have a hard job in life.
My two year old grandson breaks into giggles when he does that.
Farts and belches from beans, Oh My!
Yes, yes, digestion! I have such one, when I eat beans!
I was on the ward dealing with a patient who had a bad bedsore that needed packing. I was about nose level with his bum and he let off a real ripper of a fart. I though, " there’s gratitude for you".
Excuse me, excuse me, from the bottom of my heart, Had it been any deeper, it would have been a fart…

The Many Faces of Calvin
Beans, beans, the musical fruit,The more you eat,The more you toot!And then, you’re ready for another meal!
The first panel reminded me of Piranesi’s drawings of prisons. Great job, Watterson!
Beans, beans, the musical fruit.The more you eat,The more you toot.The more you toot,The better you feel.And then, you’re ready, For another meal.
I always tell my Grandson “there’s more room on the outside than the inside”.
When Calvin is at the dinner table, his parents never know what will come up.

Calvin is a fan of oligocarbons…
Give it a little more gas and he’d have started!
I’m surprised he hasn’t made that “dis-coloured” spot on the floor even bigger.
We used to have burping contests in Jr. High. Calvin would have won, hands down. Definitely a gold medal winner.
Calvin, if you’ve actually got microbes in your stomach long-term, then something’s wrong. Generally stomach acid is harsh enough that they don’t want to hang around, and will catch a ride with the slop as far as your intestines.
Gas-X plus Beano pretty much fixes it. Or, you can be abusive to your kids for what is really a health problem.
Part of my first-day-of-school instructions to my third graders went: “Sometimes a person’s body makes noises from one end or the other that can’t be controlled. When that happens in this class the person it happens to will quietly say, “Excuse me” and everyone else will pretend IT DIDN’T HAPPEN.” After the initial giggles, only occasional reminders of that rule were necessary to promote classroom tranquility.
is it awful food that makes people pass gas? and, what qualifies as awful food?
Let Mom hear that and you will be on tofu, rice cakes, and bran.
Watterson is a cartoon genius.
I love the strip today.
I could’ve gotten away with a slight burp at the table, but a real belch would have earned me a slap in the face.
i was just about to eat lunch….there goes my appetite!!
I don’t burp a lot. Weird.
I have five boys, maybe that’s why I love Calvin. I can relate, although none were this bad.
Fart gas comes from food putrifying instead of digesting. This can happen to 2 different types of food, which need 2 different types of gastric acids, cancel each other out. For exapmple: beef and potatoes, a protein and a starch. When eaten at different times, like seperated by a few hours, you don’t have such a problem. If you cook dryed beans with a potato, the potato will absorb the gas (throw it away, don’t let the dog eat it either) or you can cook beans for a hour or so, dump the water, cook them with fresh water for another hour or so, and dump the water again, and put fresh water in again, you won’t have as much of the gas problem.I grew up with the saying, (away from parental influence, of course) “Better to burp and taste it than to fart and waste it.”
@JohnnyDiego How do you do that?
It’s just Chemistry, Dad! I can’t help it!
I can’t believe how loud I laugh when I read C&H… I can be in a crowded room aaannnd LLLLOOOOLLLL!!!
So what happens when you throwup a strike?
Looks like dinner at my house.
My son did, and now he’s studying chemical engineering. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.
