The petomane refernce is of course the right answer. Sorry Liquidsnack, apparently I only read first line of your answer.

I find it quite amusing that screenwriters of that series name a small girls ballet school ""Small Farters".

Very amusing!

Here's the actual text of the Wikipedia article. While I was reading it, part of me was fascinated - (having never heard of Josph Pujol before), and the other part of me was saying: WTI (Waaaaaaay too much information!)

"Le Pétomane ( /ləˈpɛtəmn/, French pronunciation: [ləpetɔˈman]) was the stage name of the French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer Joseph Pujol (June 1, 1857–1945). He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, "to fart" with the -mane, "-maniac" suffix, which translates to "fartomaniac". The profession is also referred to as "flatulist", "farteur", or "fartiste".[1]
It is a common misconception to state that Joseph Pujol actually farted as part of his stage performance. Farting implies the release through the anus of intestinal gases. Pujol was "gifted" in the sense that he was able to inhale air into his rectum and then control the release of that air using his sphincter muscles (avoiding any associated odour). Evidence of his ability to control those muscles can be seen in the early accounts of demonstrations of his abilities to fellow soldiers."

Along similar lines, here is a question.

Who was obliged to perform for King Henry II at Christmas Unum saltum et siffletum et unum bumbulum ?

You should be able to find the answer by following the links on the aforementioned Wikipedia article on Le Pétomane.

I am at the library at the moment, because my computer broke down yesterday evening. I have rang PC World and they have got a techinican coming to my place on this Tuesday (16/11/10) and hopefully fix it on site. I am covered by their extended warranty. If he cannot fix it on site, he will take the tower away to their lab and fix it there, which can take up to 2 weeks to fix.

I will give you an update either on 16/11/10 from my PC, if it is fixed of course. Or on 17/11/10 from the library. Either way I will give you an update next week.

So I will not be on the forums until 16/11/10 at the earlist.

I hope they get it sorted for you....I'd be without my Internet for that many days!

Ya mean the above early Latin phrase "whoopee cushion" or that slightly more recent Latin phrase, "Fartapalooza.com"?
