I Blame the Wasabi

According to a poll by current affairs show
What Japan Thinks (cited in the Tokyo Times, via Boing Boing) 43% of Japanese women fart in front of their husbands in the first year of marriage.

What is most remarkable is that 12% of Japanese women never fart in front of their husbands. Never?? I have a feeling there are some cities in America where 100% of couples don't make it through the wedding without a couple of butt trumpets.

There are times when I think the internet is full of nothing but useless bits of data... But then something like the flatulence statistics of Japanese brides comes along. Truly inspiring. Thank you.

This is awesome.

Do you know, I have a friend whose *husband* didn't fart in front of her for years. Come to think of it, I'm not sure he has, even to this day.

I can honestly say that I have never farted in front of any of my girlfriends, including the one I lived with for five years. I have MANY flaws, make no mistake... but that is not one of them!

If my husband and I never farted in front of each other... we would never be in the same room together!
