A newly discovered scroll shows the medieval Japanese art of fart warfare. It's a well known fact that the Samurai were the biggest badasses in history. As warriors go they were pretty much unstoppable. But what force this side of Heaven or Earth can stand up to the punishing winds of a mighty rectum? The 18th century scroll dates back to the Edo period when Japan was ruled by a Shogun. It was a time in which martial valor was highly prized. The modern Japanese martial arts were first codified at this time. The scroll, called He-Gassen or "Fart Battle" demonstrates the art of farting your opponent to death.

The amazing thing about the ancient Japanese is how they can make anything, even an elaborate fart joke, look classy and sophisticated. This was centuries before they started garishly drawing monsters raping school girls or weird kids fighting each other with Pokemon. No, the fart was an elegant weapon for a more civilized age.
