Public health advertisements which read “What’s up your butt?” and feature people with pained expressions on their faces, will not grace billboards in Benton and Franklin counties after all. It’s probably for the best: I know that the sight of someone grimacing because the doc is plumbing their back-passage doesn’t exactly inspire me to head down to the clinic to get my keester probed. Might as well have them biting down on a pencil.

Health district pulls out of colon cancer campaign
KENNEWICK — The Benton Franklin Health District will not endorse a colon cancer billboard campaign after all.
Benton County Commissioner Jim Beaver, who is chairman the health district board, announced Thursday, “Benton County won’t be a supporter of that particular advertisement and that campaign.”
Plans were to bring the “What’s up your butt?” campaign from Yakima County to the Tri-Cities. It uses provocative language to encourage testing for colon cancer.

Dutch Boy® Paint Co. is having a contest to promote their Refresh™ brand paint – a paint that not only brightens the room, but also kills odor (purportedly). People send in pictures of the ugliest, stinkiest room in their houses, and site visitors have the opportunity to view the rooms and vote on which ones look stinkiest. The prizes for the three ugliest, stinkiest rooms are:
1st prize: 50 gallons of Refresh™ paint and $5000
2nd prize: 25 gallons of Refresh™ paint and $2500
3rd prize: 10 gallons of Refresh™ paint and $1000
Those who vote on the rooms also have a chance at winning a few gallons of paint.
There’s an episode of Family Guy where Peter has liposuction, which turns him into a beautiful person. In short order, he is invited to join an exclusive club for beautiful people, and on the inaugural tour of the facilities his host hands him a bottle of pills: “Here, take these – they’ll make your bowel movements smell like bakery fresh cinnamon rolls.”
Ben Franklin addressed this speculative idea over two centuries ago – that flatus (farts) might someday be rendered innocuous by taking some manner of drug or substance:
My prize question therefore should be, To discover some drug wholesome and not disagreeable, to be mixed with our common food, or sauces, that shall render the natural discharges, of wind from our bodies, not only inoffensive, but agreeable as Perfumes.
That this is not a chimerical Project, and altogether impossible, may appear from these considerations. That we already have some knowledge of the means capable of varying that smell. He that dines on stale flesh, especially with much addition of onions, shall be able to afford a stink that no company can tolerate; while he that has lived for some time on vegetables only, shall have that breath so pure as to be insensible to the most delicate noses; and if he manage so as to avoid the report, he may any where give vent to his griefs unnoticed….
From Fart Proudly: Writings of Benjamin Franklin You Never Read in School, edited by Carl Japikse.
Well, such a product has arrived. Misanthrope and skeptic that I am, I am inclined to doubt its efficacy sight unseen waft unsmelled, but this new product called Whiff!, pushed (yes, that’s the right word) at a website with the evocative name takeawhiff.com claims that their product will render your poop and farts odorless (except in the case of avid meat-eaters, in which case the original essence of the miasma will remain, merely diminished in potency).

Assy McGee. Cop. Loose cannon. Romantic. Drunk.
What Sly Stallone would look like if he had an ass for a face.
On Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim next Sunday, 12:30 am.
I had a look at Assy’s website. There’s a “fartboard” there, featuring audio clips of Assy’s various gassy exclamations, e.g., the hard-boiled “Fart of Simmering Rage,” the poignant “2 a.m. Fart of Lonliness,” and the comedic “You can say that again Sanchez!” fart. Among others.
