18.104.22.168 (talk) 05:40, 2 May 2008 (UTC) This is indeed a true article. I have been aware of flatulists, especially Mr. Methane, for quite some time. I have viewed his performances on television as well as his website. The content contained in this article is correct.
I get the feeling that particular individuals object to this article's content due to their over-conservative values, which I feel is not fair judgement of Wikipedia articles.
This article can be confirmed. I tried prostrating, and I was able to suck in air into my anus and dispel it would controlled pitches at will. However, it was not flamable, likely due to the fact I was mostly farting oxygen. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Wikologist (talk • contribs) .
- He probably meant mostly farting air, which contains a lot more than just oxygen. If he were taking in air and expelling pure oxygen, I hate to think where the rest went! 22.214.171.124 04:10, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
"fart" is not slang. If anything, "flatulence" is, a burgeois euphemism taken from Middle French, in use since 1599, while "fart" is a time-honoured, stable word used in all dialects of English, descending straight from Anglo-Saxon feortan. "professional flatulist" is tautological, you don't call a non-professional farter a "flatulist". dab (ᛏ) 13:08, 22 March 2006 (UTC) Is there a reason that there could not be such a thing as an amateur flatulist?

Oh, could I expel upon command ...
From the introductory article in the Exemplaria "web cluster:
- "Yet even flatulence can become sweet harmony, ..."
However, I'm not sure it be stretched into scholarship. (Purses lips)
This is an article derivative of a article published on the web, the site associated with a journal which apparently has some notability. Two questions arise:
- Is an article summarizing a web-published article associated with a scholarly (?) journal, notable enough?
- Does this article constitute original research?
Oh, yes, and as I do have some small acquaintance with someone of the medievalist persuasion, I must admit they do have a fascination with the oddities of history, and are not adverse to demonstrating that audibly.

The second and third citations given give no clue as to what is being cited — a book, a magazine article, a paper. Author+title is not sufficient information for a proper citation. Uncle G 03:37, 30 December 2006 (UTC)
