If Joseph Pujol was driving that 1964 Chrysler he wouldn’t need to stop for fuel.
Looks more like a Ford to me.
“Professional Farter”? I didn’t know this was an option. I’ve been wasting my life as an amateur. Those people in France knew how to live!
Joseph Pujol’s stage name was Le Pétomane and he performed at the Moulin Rouge
He got paid to fart? Where do I get a job like that?
Joseph Pujol did not allow smokers in the audience
So how much is a gallon of cheap rotten booze per mile?
Someplace I think I still have a replica edition of a late 19th or very early 20th century paperback about Joseph Pujol, aka Le Pétomane….
He supposedly never passed actual bodily gas in his performances….
His talent was an amazing ability to control his abdominal muscles and sphincter…
He could suck in air or water, and expel it as he wished….
imitating musical instruments, playing melodies… and even play a few real wind instruments with air from a tube.
He could also make animal sounds, blow out candles from a distance, smoke a cigar, and do other tricks, all from his rear orifice.
There were no movies yet, or television…. no internet….
Entertainment was mostly staid classical concerts or home sing-alongs if someone could play the piano.
Le Pétomane was kinda the GoComics of his day.
Pujols’ stage name of LePetomane was appropriated by Mel Brooks for his character as the territorial governor in “Blazing Saddles.” Several references were made to calling his character the vulgar term for rectum.
I can’t remember who recorded it but I seem to recall something about a farting contest years ago. Maybe back in the 60’s or 70’s.
Interesting that all the comments revolve around the fart machine. Here’s a link to the soldier’s glowing wounds from the Civil War. Still the war with the most loss of life for the US. http://mentalfloss.com/article/30380/why-some-civil-war-soldiers-glowed-dark
Why waste booze like that?!? (hic)
There are much better uses.
I used to have the LP record! The Farting Contest
Paul Boomer VS Lord Windesmear in a classic blow to blow all out winner takes all farting contest.
I had a 1969 Volkswagen that ran on Kerosene. We were camping and ran out of gas. Had kerosene for the lamps and used that. Made it home and no damage. Used bailing wire to hold the starter on when it fell off. Loved that car!!!!!!!
I remember that car,, they used it in a movie.
Well, Joe.. I don’t know what to say.
Did not know that Ripley’s explained themselves. At least in this case they have.
Going to have to check it out . . .
The problem with turbine cars is that they overheat at stoplights and slow speeds.
It’d be even better to pronounce “Pujol” the Spanish way.
here is the link for about the Angel’s glow https://www.kidsdiscover.com/quick-reads/angels-glow-the-bacterium-that-saved-civil-war-soldiers/
I guess they were pretty much desperate for entertainment in the 1800s.
To ALL my friends here:
I, too, have read of the glowing wounds and the reason therefor. Very interesting. The soldiers who had the glowing wounds were truly very fortunate.
The firefighters at Chernobyl had the same problem…
It would not run on beer, though.
