Flatulence humor refers to any type of joke, practical joke device, or other off-color humor related to flatulence.
Although it is likely that flatulence humor has long been considered funny in cultures that consider the public passing of gas impolite, such jokes are rarely recorded. Two important early texts are the 5th century BC plays The Knights and The Clouds, both by Aristophanes, which contain numerous "fart" jokes. Another example from classical times appeared in Apocolocyntosis or The Pumpkinification of Claudius, a satire attributed to Seneca on the late Roman emperor:
Forward March Hare is a 1952-animated Looney Tunes cartoon released in 1953 featuring Bugs Bunny. Bugs, accidentally drafted into the Army, causes havoc with his sergeant at basic training. The title relates to the March Hare.
This cartoon was released during the final months of the Korean War.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
