We All Know Burping And Farting Are Hilarious, But Why Are We So Gassy?

This is serious science, you guys, don't laugh.

If you don’t think flatulence is occasionally hilarious, you’re probably on the wrong website. Since we love both farts and science around here, we were intrigued by SciShow‘s new episode explaining why, exactly, we get a bit gassy. And we didn’t giggle at all while watching it.

Probably.

Sam Maggs is a writer and televisioner, currently hailing from the Kingdom of the North (Toronto). Her first book, THE FANGIRL'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY will be out soon from Quirk Books. Sam’s parents saw Star Wars: A New Hope 24 times when it first came out, so none of this is really her fault.
