The sound of a fart?

*pforft*?

Involved in too many serious threads today I guess. Unwinding.

What are other sounds that are hard to spell?

What is OXmosis? you mean OSmosis? Or do you mean my twist on the word Xmosis? Smile

Any way...Chrystal...NOT words that are hard to spell...but actual SOUNDS that are hard to spell out...

A guy thing? Girls don't...uh...well...

Now it all depends on your diet!

Lots of fruit and you get a "Ssssssssss".

Lots of gassy food maybe more of a? - tell you what, why not visit Mr Methane's Website again!

I don't know how to spell the sound a soda can makes when you open it. I think I've seen it as "pfzt"

I am more interested in how you spell the smell of a fart.

Michael Baker, that's a real toughy...maybe liken them to tastes..

Red is pepper or strawberry
blue is ice...

Grape definately tastes like Purple...don't ya think?

something I reckon the food industry deals with when developing new flavors and matching them with a color.

Interesting Q.

I don't usually laugh at flatulance joke, but I did get a chuckle years ago looking at the back page of a commic book. It was an ad for a toy machine gun. It featured a little boy with a look on his face that said "quietly horribly evil" and he was holding and firing the gun. IN big letters over head head, and clearly comming from the gun was written... F-A-A-A-A-R-T!

Hmm go figure I misread your post Xmosis and my attempt at humor failed miserably. I thought you had said what words are difficult to spell.

You know the english language has a word for this ONOMATOPOIA -a word that imitates the sound it represents - Splat, Kerplunk, Zoom , Zip..etc..

Luckily the wise dictionary folks never attempted to do this with umm you know "that word" or woman would never say it! It reminds me of a James Harriot story in which a very dignified British lady called to tell him of her dogs flatuence problem and his embarressment with dealing with the situation. Very humorous.

Just had a thought ..Burp would be an Onomatopoia..unless a fellow spelt out the alphabet then that would completely change the sound. Again a guy thing. :O)

ONOMATOPOIA...thanks for that!

The famous Tallulah Bankhead Elevator story...the elevator operator gave her a glance after an unusual 'occurance' and she shot back..."Yes I did it...I hope you don't think I smell like that All The Time!"

What was the question?
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

Two drunks are arguing in a bar. The first one says: "I tell ya, it's w-h-o-o-m." The second guy mumbles "Nah. It's w-o-o-m!" Finally the bartender walks over and says "Look, guys, you're both wrong. It's w-o-m-b." The first drunk turns to the second and says "What does HE know about elephant farts?"
