Top 5 Farts in Video Game History with Video Evidence of He Who Dealt It
Everyone farts. Even that virginal cheerleader you had the crush on in high school began her day with a triumphant blast of her trumpet. It's a fact of life as stinky and socially irrelevant as The Facts of Life, and to us modern hepcats we can't see anyone making a big deal out of it.
16th Century German peasants fart at the Pope while he holds a burning Bible.
