Farters of Australia we salute you! Bernie Hobbs has the results AND the pie charts and bar graphs. Almost 1000 gassy Aussies took part in the Great Fart Survey, and we’ve just finished crunching all that smelly data. The office is not a pretty sight! The big news: Aussie kids fart about 24 times a day – which is about twice as often as the books say, and that's not counting when they’re asleep! Shame it’s not an Olympic event. The most common farts were the aptly named Common Fart (25%), followed by our old friend the Silent but Deadly (23%). The least common fart was the Squirter – but that still happened a scary 7% of the time. Yukko! We were surprised that only 39% of participants like the smell of their own farts (we all love ours) but we were impressed and kinda freaked out that 28% of our farters can let one rip whenever they want. Go team!

The Baked Beans Experiment was the really scientific part of the survey, and we had about 100 dedicated subjects counting their farty action over two days - one day without and one day with baked beans for brekkie. Sure enough, science backed up what we all know – baked beans make you fart! (a whopping 40% more than usual!) But either boys and girls have different ideas of what makes a common fart, or baked beans have a different effect on them. The girls who ate beans did much more Silent But Friendly and Squirter farts. But the guys did heaps more Common and Thunderer farts. Hmm, looks like some further research might be called for...
