This Guy Took Scientifically Gassy Foods And Made One FART-INDUCING DIP Out of Them

For no reason other than to ruin fancy parties, food writer Dannie Ree (Dennis Lee) boldly attempted to create the perfect Fart Dip. Yes, fart dip aimed to purposely muster the perfect amount of gas to create the most awful of smells.

Ree used ingredients like cabbage, sour cream, caramelized onions, prunes and butter beans; all of which are known to contribute to flatulence. To no one’s surprise, the result ended up tasting like “thick vomit” as Ree describes.

The food writer stated that the nasty flavor was mostly from the caramelized onions. However, mixing it with the sour cream and other ingredients really contributed to the awful taste.

While unsuccessful (he farted, but not as much as he hoped for), Ree doesn’t let this deter him from creating more fart dip. In fact, he only thinks of this as the first step of many. The entire recipe cane be found on Ree’s blog.

Fart App Lets You Know Which Foods Make You Gassy

Here’s an idea that doesn’t stink. Er, sort of.

In an effort to teach kids health/science stuff in a way that’s more entertaining than staring at a textbook, ad agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners has designed a new smartphone app centered entirely around farts. Because inquisitive minds want to know, Fart Code allows users to scan barcodes to discover whether foods will 1) give them gas and 2) how noxious that gas might be.

The Fart-O-Meter rates products from “stinky” to “toxic,” provides a list of any gas-causing ingredients, and even generates what a potential fart might sound like — a sound you can then share via text message or social network. It’s like how SnapChat might have looked if SnapChat were designed for 12 year old boys.

“It’s difficult to talk to your kids about what they eat and how it impacts their bodies and minds and maybe this app will help start the conversation,” app co-creator Chris Allick told Animal New York.

The app does seem to work only for products with barcodes though, so when it comes to that bacon-wrapped L.A. street dog, well, you’re on you’re own.
