Passing gas is normal, not something to point out

Am I the only one that doesn't think "fart" (I loathe that word) humor is funny?  I have 2 boys and they pass gas frequently but we never make a big deal out of it.  My late brother would try to belch or pass gas as loudly as possible and make jokes about it.  If someone else did it, he would point it out and tease said person.

Hubby and I are just matter of fact about bodily functions.......Anyone else not make a big deal of these things?

It's always seemed silly that burping and farting is considered rude,but sneezing and coughing is perfectly acceptable.

We laugh about farts in our house. It's a funny noise. We also laugh about them at work.

DH and I are both medical professionals. Lol

My SO just let's it go no matter where we are.. I know its a normal bodily function but its embarrassing when we are in a crowded store aisle and he starts dropping bombs

I still joke with my kids about it in the privacy of our home, but I make sure to balance it with the knowledge that passing gas is perfectly normal and not gross. The Classic (6yo) is beginning to ignore it for the most part, but The Sequal (almost 2yo) still thinks it's hilarious when he farts.

Farts are funny to us but we have a sense of humor.
