    Sounds like some alternatively propelled version of l' Hydroptère.

    No I hadn't Nico, but that's one of the most entertaining Wikipedia articles I've ever read. I love the idea of a farting concert for the king of the Belgians.

    Northy, sorry to divert your thread to discussion of farting Francophones, but at least we're keeping it on the top of Active Topics.
    Eeeh 'tis grim dahn Sarf.

    I couldn't think of a better king to honour in such a manner.

    Northy's blatant pimp will have to take its chances with the forum whims. What worries me is that he has a medium jacket but large shorts. Is this because he really does have those enormous "kahunas" so beloved of windsurfing men, or is he merely built like a ruggerist with a ahem low centre of gravity. No pictures please, Jackoboi could be reading this.

    On closer inspection of my current avatar I realise it already fits that bill.
