Best headline ever.
Few things split an audience like a good old fart.
Some of us find it hilarious and other, more boring types, find it disgusting. Personally, I find the funniest farts take place in the most inappropriate situations and I always admired the guts, literally, of those at school who let rip in assemblies.
As divisive as farting can be and as funny as it can be too, the terrible stench that follows is something we could all live without.
If only someone could invent something, anything, to make our farts smell better…
That’s exactly what French company Lutin Malin has done. Award-winning inventor, Lutin Malin, has taken it upon himself to make our flatulence that little bit more bearable, by inventing an edible pill that can make your farts literally smell like roses!
According to the site, Malin came up with the idea after dinner one evening and “said to himself it would be more appropriate to be able to fart without bothering his neighbours!” which begs the question, just how bad are his farts?!
The site also states that the Fart Pill is the result of “lengthy research and trials”. Imagine being a part of those ‘trials’… no thanks!
Amazingly, rose-scented farts aren’t the only aromas that you can produce because they also have a range of pills that make your farts smell like chocolate, violet and weirdly, ginger. I’m pretty sure ginger farts would smell even worse?
Customers shouldn’t be put off by the idea of buying random pills over the internet though, because the Fart Pill isn’t considered to be medicine. The Fart Pill is in fact, simply a “dietary supplement based on natural ingredients” according to their website.
The company, founded in 2007, is based in France and offers free shipping from Paris and even ship your order in plain packaging to protect dignity from any nosey postmen out there.
The costs for each scent vary, but the chocolate edition is currently on offer for just over £14 with each individual sachet containing 60 pills. The recommended use is 2-6 capsules per day at mealtimes and before you know it, you’ll have fresh smelling flatulence in no time!
And if you needed any more convincing, then here’s the clincher, because Lutin Malin has also invented a special powdery version of the pill to give to your dog. So no more making your 4 legged friend leave the room!
As Malin himself says, “You can disguise the sound of a fart but not the stench”. Wise words indeed.
So if you know someone who needs the Fart Pill in their life, order a sachet today and it won’t be long until they’re able to let rip guilt-free!
