Everybody I know who contends with a crummy gut has hysterically funny stories to share. For many of us, humor is the only possible coping mechanism that can get us through days of gas station bathrooms and embarrassing moments at work.

Here is one of my favorites: ever hear of electric farts? That’s when you think you just want to pass gas and then you get one heck of a SHOCK instead. I believe some people refer to this as “sharting.” Ever have that happen at work, 50 miles from home and no change of clothes? Try explaining that one to your bosses right before review time.

Uh-oh! A friend just forwarded this picture to me. This is way too close!!!








My hope is that Crummy Gut will become a place where we can all share the humiliations of our daily lives with humor and laughter.
