    I swear as John was telling the story of Mr. Methane I thought “That guy should tour with Stevie Starr.” If it makes you feel better John in 1996 I went to a trade show where colleges book live entertainment repping a band I was friends with and I was in the booth directly across from Stevie and got to witness his act over and over and over again for an entire 3 day weekend. He’s a super nice guy, and for anyone wondering it’s not magic he really actually does that stuff.

    Of course I did. Mr. Methane changed his name to Monsieur Méthane and was on France’s « You’ve got talent ». It went exactly like you would think it did. 😂

    Hearing about this, “Mr. Methane,” sounds both impressive and oppressive at the same time.

    To build on Mr. Methane, look up and then listen to the YouTube video of “The Great Crepitation Contest of 1946.” It is hilarious! 😂

    “The Battle at Thunderblow: The Great Crepitation Contest of 1946” is a comedy record of mysterious origins that gives a play-by-play account of an international farting contest between Lord Windesmear and challenger Paul Boomer. The exact source of the record is unknown, but according to a post on Rand’s Esoteric OTR it was created by Canadian Broadcasting Corporation sports announcer Sydney S. Brown and producer Jules Lipton some time in the 1940s.

    Although it appears to have been only produced as an internal joke and not commercially distributed, it managed to survive as a benchmark of high-end fart comedy for more than half a century.

    I remember both Mr. Methane and Stevie Starr from their TV appearances Down Under in the early 90’s.
