Jemand namens Hashi hat bei Online-Recherchen eine alte japanische Schriftrolle aus dem 19. Jahrhundert gefunden. Und die heisst „He-Gassen“ („The Fart Battle“).

I was doing research for another post a while back, and found something a bit…unusual. It was an old Japanese scroll about farting.

No, you didn’t misread that last sentence. The whole scroll, which is called He-Gassen (“The Fart Battle”) is just about people farting. Farting at other people, farting at cats, farting off of horses, farting into bags; just farting everywhere.

Why? I couldn’t really tell you. I’ve tried to do some research but, believe it or not, academic literature on Japanese farting is surprisingly few and far between.
