People can hear farts
Wenn ein gehörloses Kind in der ersten Klasse furzt, und bis dahin keine Ahnung hat, dass hörende Menschen Fürze hören können, dann ergibt sich der bislang beste Furzwitz des Jahres:
Today in 1st grade one of my deaf students farted loudly in class and other students turned to look at them. The following is a snippet of a 15 minute conversation that happened entirely in American Sign Language among the group of deaf students and I.
Kid 1: Why are they looking at me?
Me: Because they heard you fart.
Kid 1: Whhhhat do you mean?!?!
Me: Hearing people can hear farts.
Kid 2: *Totally horrified* Wait, they can hear all farts?!?!
Me: Well no. Not all farts but some of them yes.
Kid 3: How do you know which farts they can hear and which farts they can’t?
Me: Hmmm....you know how sometimes you can feel your butt move when you fart? A lot of those they can hear. But if your butt doesn’t move it’s more likely they didn’t hear it.
Kid 1: TELL THEM TO STOP LISTENING TO MY FARTS! THAT IS NOT NICE!
Me: Hearing kids can’t stop hearing farts, it just happens.
Kid 2: I just will stop farting then.
Me: Everyone farts, it is healthy. You can’t stop.
Kid 3: Wait. Everyone? Even my mom?
Kid 2: My dad?
Kid 1: ......You?
Kids: *Laugh hysterically*
Kid 1: ...So you can hear and smell all the farts?
Me: Some of the farts yes. Not all of them.
Kid 2: Can hearing people see farts?
Kid 3: Yeah. Green smoke comes out of their butt, I saw it on TV.
Me: That doesn’t happen in real life.
Kid 1: What?! Ugh. I don’t understand farts.
I went to college for 8 years to have these conversations.
