Memorable Farts Heard 'Round the World:THE THOUSAND AND ONE NIGHTS OF FARTS

 While some of the stories in the Middle Eastern folk tale collection The Thousand And One Nights are incredibly well known—Aladdin, Ali Baba, and Sinbad, for instance—Hollywood has yet to adapt the story of Abu Hasan’s fart to the big screen.


 In the story, Hasan is getting married for the second time after his wife’s death, and ruins his wedding by ripping a fat one. Ashamed, he runs away and doesn’t return for 10 years. Slinking back into the city, he overhears a young girl asking her mother what her birthday is. She replies, “You were born the night Abu Hasan farted." Great stuff.
