It’s a Gas Gas Gas

Le Petomane
Boy, a little surfing based on my Toulouse Latrec post yesterday led me down paths unexpected, and turned up this wondrous poster, along with some associated stories on Le Petomane, Joseph Pujol. He was an extremely popular act at the Moulin Rouge during the fin de siecle, enjoying a flatulent career up until 1914. He played music, smoked cigarettes and did imitations, all with his ass. How he was able to sustain his act for 25+ years is beyond me, but it must have been a hell of show.
