One of Those Really Important Questions.....


that comes to mind now and then.....


"Do ballerinas ever pass gas on stage?"


I was watching "So You Think You Can Dance" two weeks ago and they had guest dancers on the show from the Los Angeles Ballet. They danced a wonderful pas de deux; so graceful and lyrical. All I could think of at the time was to wonder if she ever farted. If I had to jump and bounce across the stage, and lift my leg over my head, I'd blow someone clear off the stage, no doubt. Either that or they'd wish they were off the stage....

(Not that I've ever been able to lift my leg over my head, mind you.)

My sister used to wonder if hummingbirds farted. I am never going to be able to watch a ballet again without thinking of you and your wonderful mind. Thanks. j

Yoga class is another good place. That may be why Nora/Kate had to quit. Or the others demanded she do.

And I thought fart comments only made the grandchildren giggle. Only more proof that age is ageless:-)

It is an interesting question Judy and it would be great for a ballerina to respond.

And here, my husband got on me yesterday for noticing a lady at the restaurant we were at was gone from her table for about 20 minutes, I later told him, "I bet she was taking a dump." He said he didn't want to think about strangers' bathroom activities. LOL.

I know someone who thought only boys farted. Those ballerinas look too picture perfect for such things. Michele says hi.

Thanks Kenju, next time I watch a ballet, instead of marveling at the legs of the dancers, I'll wonder about their ability to produce methane. Good question!

Oh thank God I wasn't drinking coffee when I read this post....you kill me Judy. Perfectly legit question by the way.....

ballerinas don't eat, therefore there's probably nothing in their systems to make gas with but air.

Oh my.
