Only after a "franks n' beans" lunch, I'm afraid to say.

That said though, I saw an interesting book in a friend of mine's office the
other day (he's a child psychologist). I don't recall the exact title, but
the book was geared toward a fairly young audience and dealt with the
understanding and proper use of flatulents. My friend got a giggle after he
caught my eye wandering toward the book, and told me the book must have been
written by a technical writer. I asked why, and he flipped open the book to
a certain page:

"Did you know that the gaseous content of the average flatulent is
equivalent to three ounces?" in all its exquisite detail and breakdowns.

I had to wonder about that...
