The Silent Farter Chair Has a Crude Sense of Humor

Finally, a chair designed to amplify one's farts. (Yes, the name is ironic.)

We know what you're thinking, but the Silent Farter Chair (concept) isn't some Spencer Gifts novelty. It's a well-reasoned solution to a global problem:

Those with excess gas in their abdomen can find it difficult to hold it in sometimes, even at important times such as formal dinner gatherings or meetings. Quietly letting the gas out may be the solution, but although the sound may be muted, the scent is still present. It can often cause misunderstanding and unnecessary embarrassment for the innocent others.This chair announces who the gas is from by amplifying the silent fart exhausted.

Lacking such a chair in my own life, should I fart during a board meeting, I generally raise my hand and politely state, "So everyone in the room is aware and there are absolutely no misunderstandings, I have just farted." And no one says a word. [Alice Wang via Yanko Design]
