Do plants fart?

Seriously.

Last night I was getting in bed, and I smelled something not good. I know it wasn't me, and it wasn't my ho. She would own up to it. Actually, she'd be looking for a high five.

We pinpointed the area of the smell, and it was right where my new plant is sitting, right next to my fridge. Except it wasn't coming from the fridge. It was just....there. I thought maybe some large bug died, but the scent was gone a little while later.

I didn't smell exactly like a fart, but it did smell a bit like sh!t, maybe with a chemical scent thrown in the mix.

My conclusion: it was either a ghost, or my plant needs it's pipes checked.

Might have been the smell of some compost or manure .

I have handled about a ton of manure in the past month. When you open the bag, there's no odor at all. However, when you water the ground it was added to, there's a slight odor....but, you're saying you smelled it all the way from the kitchen? Where fans blowing?

Kitchen? I never mentioned no kitchen. All in the same room, and I never had to open anything when buying the plant.

Two questions come to mind.

1. Slappy either sleeps in kitchen or he keeps his fridge in the bedroom.

2. How high a pile would a ton of manure make?

I'm not sure about farting. But I do know this: last night I received a "hot carl" from my favorite potted fern. I call her, "Fern." We're in love.

when you bought the plant, there might have been manure in the pot.

wait, since you keep your fridge in the bedroom, have you been using the plant as a commode?

maybe a cat took a dump in the pot before you bought it.

there's all kinds of organic stuff that rots in a flower pot.



how big a pile of manure does one ton make? that I'm not sure, but to fill a hole in the ground that about 20' by 20' by 1' or 1.5' deep you need 2 tons of landscaping soil, and a ton and a half EACH of manure, compost and sand.

so, I have about 500 pounds of manure sitting around waiting for me to be inspired.

that, is some heavy ****.

I think you to be capable of bending, folding, spindling and mutilating Nature in ways it was never meant to go.


In YOUR hands, I believe a plant could fart.




























(I don't think that it's a studio is relevant to your ability to suborn Nature.)
