    "In an interview yesterday, Bedard, who writes “Washington Whispers” for the weekly newsmagazine, also said he’s heard about Bush’s full-salute “Austin Greeting.” That’s when new aides come in for their “meet and greet.”

    “Word is,” says Bedard, “he likes to gas a couple, and then bring the aide in and see what the kid’s face looks like.” "

    Are you kidding? That's hysterical.

    I can't stand George W. Bush, but I have to agree with him for once. Farts are funny.

    :D

    Farting at a new employee really isn't funny. It's borderline abusive.

    Just when I thought it couldn't get any worse... Childish humor is best left to children.

    I almost understand why flatulence humor is funny. Almost. I just think farting for fun is incredibly inappropriate in the workplace.

    I got to go with the writer on this one. Fart jokes are funny if you are male, and you are young. For those of us in the real world, just imagine if your ceo or managing partner or a Judge or a professor did this. You would think they were a little off their nut, and not in a good way.

    Second, (dangerously inviting clinton comparisons) I do think that there is some responsibility in holding the office of president, and ripping one, and then saying "the smeller's the feller" in the oval office is not quite up to the office.

    I'm a big Truman fan, but would say the same thing after reading about his propensity to belch and fart.

    A good fart is funny. I love farting and then blaming someone else.

    Boohoo....Bush is showing a human side and some of you are still upset. Get over it.

    Could Dubya have less gravitas.

    President Mo would have more gravitas.

    It's actually kind of funny. Realistically, there are better ways to have fun with interns. [​IMG]

    Clinton got blow jobs and Bush farts on them.

    Let me ask you all which makes more sense?

    Well I don't get it either...

    I feel compelled to point out that the practice described is not so much a human one in general, but characteristic of a subset of humans. They are usually referred to as "bullies."

    I can't stop laughing. I've done that to new empolyees too... but I work in the video game industry, not the reponsible-for-people's-lives industry.

    Guess this dispels the rumor of Laura being a closet smoker. Obviously her smoker's wrinkles are due too much time in the "Dutch Oven".

    It ain't just women.

    I don't wanna smell anyone's ass, under any circumstances, period. It's one thing when it just happens, but to force that sh!t on someone (pun intended) deliberately?

    Especially someone that is a subordinate and is powerless to protest. And especially squared when you're the ********ing President of the ********ing United States of ********ing America and you're taunting your new employees with your intestinal emissions. Uncool doesn't even begin to cover it.

    But usually those humans are 10 years old. Sure Bush the Younger was a slow grower, but certainly you would expect him to put away such things when he got out of adolescence at age 40.

    Suppose you were at a social function. If some 60 year-old guy came along and did the "Pull my finger" bit, wouldn't you think he was creepy? Weird? Immature? Stunted, even? Old men doing fart jokes is a TV and movie cliché representing boorishness and lack of civility. If this was Bush's only failing I'd let it pass, but it is just one example of many, many examples of an unexamined life. All those things add up. He certainly is not the best of us, and if he is representative of us, it is cause for despair.

    Let's face it. We haven't had an adult in the White House since January of 1993
