That would fit with the company’s attempt to transform a tame Animal House or Tommy Boy wannabe into a butt-bang fiesta. First was the title change from Artie to F.A.R.T.

Who said his career was behind him? His career was always behind him. It’s been over 110 years now since Pujol breezed into Belle
thirty-second flubberbubber, not Junior’s 464 firecrackers, that won the F-Emmy for Best Farting Moment. Since nobody could get Will on the phone, actor William Shatner, who has his own fart history (see chapter 27), came in to accept the award (a green bust of a black, bucktoothed midget named Beetlejuice, who’s a regular on the show) and remarked that the F-Emmy indeed conferred the “sweet smell of success” on Will the Farter.

The other players will decide what you scored on the fart meter on the gameboard. You will then be awarded the appropriate number of gas coupons. If you can’t create a real fart, we have included suggestions on how to make one artificially. As a last resort we have included a whoopee cushion for those who are truly incompetent.
