Everyone knows Benjamin Franklin was one of the great philosophers of his time. But there was a side to him you were not exposed to in school -- a bawdy, scurrilous side that was all too eager to ignite the fires of controversy. From time to time, he would put some of his satirical ideas down on paper.
Fart Proudly is a testament to the rogue that lived inside the philosopher and statesman. It includes essays such as "A Letter to the Royal Academy, " "The Supreme Court of the Press, " "On Choosing A Mistress, " and "Rules on Making Oneself Disagreeable."
