. . . I've got to ask the obvious question. . . for educational purposes, of course. . . does the Latin word for "stuffed" have any correlation with the colloquial English term for flatulent activity?
As far as I can tell, no it isn't related. By the way, "fart" is pēdō, pēdere and "fart quietly" is suppēdō, suppēdere!
Only Romans could invent a verb to mean "to fart quietly"!
I wish we could add a lol avatar instead of just an upvote.
Fartus • Farciō ( stuffed, full, filled ) • Farce borrowed from Middle French farce ( comic interlude in a mystery play - literally "stuffed" )
