In anticipation of the apocalypse tomorrow, I think we could all use a little pick me up. Perhaps some music? Maybe played by a teenage kid making fart noises with his hands? The Hand Fart Master is a young virtuoso living in Canada that is the Jimi Hendrix of making wet disgusting fart noises with his hand. It is a fact that farts - along with monkeys/cats in people clothes - are the funniest things on Earth. It's ingrained in us. Watch an 18th month old child fart and laugh and laugh and laugh. It used to be where people who harnessed the power of the winds were respected. In the 19th century there was a popular French performer called the Fartiste who would perform songs and do impressions in front of packed theaters with his ass. Today we think we are too classy for that kind of thing. It makes sense that this kid lives in Canada. If South Park taught us anything it's that fart humor is alive and well up in the Great White North.
The Hand Fart Master has versions of Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb, Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, and Creedence Clearwater Revival's Fortunate Son as well you can check out. But in light of the coming end I chose The Beatles classic Let it Be.
