Did you know that James Joyce liked to smell his wife''s farts? That some fish communicate by expelling gas? Or that the Pentagon is developing weapons of mass olfactory destruction (WMOD)? That''s just a whiff of what's in store in this breathtaking follow-up to the best-selling fart history, WHO CUT THE CHEESE?In BLAME IT ON THE DOG, eminent fartologist Jim Dawson sniffs out the latest and greatest new items of the past century, from flatulent robot dogs and fart fetishists to poot-proof underwear and anti-stink pills. In fifty breezy chapters, he spills the beans about scientific (wind)breakthroughs, celebrity butt rumblings, and real-life fartistes like Flatulina Fontanelle Boutier, cyberspace entertainer the Queen of Farts, and Mr. Methane, England''s Prince of Poots. Plumbing the nether regions of politics, pop culture, and the (f)arts, this stinker of a bathroom book will leave you gasping for air.

This was a silly Christmas gift for my Nieces new husband. Our family has a dry sense of humor and so I thought it would be a fun introduction to the way our family functions! Read full review

About the author (2006)

Jim Dawson is a product of West Virginia University, which at this very moment is probably burning his student records. Along with being a real smart feller (or something like that), he's a former editor of Hustler magazine and the author of several books that very few people have read, including the critically acclaimed WHAT WAS THE FIRST ROCK 'N' ROLL RECORD? Dawson lives in Hollywood, California.
