This is a problem I face whenever I use the urinal. I tend to be gassy on both ends, but it’s obviously easier to suppress it if it’s coming out of my mouth. I think I inherited this trait from my dad except he doesn’t burp loudly like I do. I’m fortunate enough to have some friends who applaud this sort of thing, because it’s very liberating to not have to worry about this sort of thing. Sometimes you can think that you’re doing so well to let out a fart silently, when it turns out that maybe it had more pressure than you originally thought. Then you let your guard down and get too overconfident which leads to bad things. The real question is this: If you know you’re going to be making embarrassing sounds is it better or worse to know the person that you’re sharing the bathroom with and vice versa?

The lowbrow toilet humor strips tend to be the majority of the few comics of my own that I laugh out loud at. I only laugh at maybe 1% or 2% of my strips. I would like to think that those comics must be exceptionally funny, but that probably isn’t necessarily the case. I think it’s good that I don’t laugh at most of them, because fewer things are less funny than a guy who laughs at his own jokes.
