I Put 40 Farts Into The Movie “This Is 40” To Make It Stink Less Because I’m Officially Five Years Old

This is 40 Farts This Is Farty movie

Did you like Knocked Up? Because I loved it. Even with the impossibly unrealistic pairing of Katherine Heigl with Seth Rogen, that movie made me just a skosh less anxious about making babies and introduced me to the wonders of the gas mask bong and pinkeye fights.

So, when it was announced that Judd Apatow would be producing a spin-off film called, “This Is 40” starring everyone’s best bud Paul Rudd and the lovingly venomous Leslie Mann, I was on board. Then I saw it in the theaters with my sister and her mister and we felt… I won’t say hoodwinked, but definitely disappointed. Not to say it was bad, but it just missed the mark. So, I added 40 farts into This Is 40 and ended up with this…

Okay, so my video isn’t as creative as this musician who used his bulldog’s farts to make a song, but it’s the best I could do with what was available.

It sucks more people don’t embrace flatulence. Science says we love the smell of our own farts, yet we try to outrun others.

Like, why did this weatherman get fired for inserting fart noises into his report? I’m not saying you should go around blasting fart spray into girls’ faces at bars, but I WOULD love more videos like this one of an older sister completely SHOCKING her littler brother with her butt burp. Or more record-breaking videos like this one of a guy blowing out an incredible number of candles with his ass smoke.

As for “This Is 40”, I really could’ve used more of Jason Segel and Chris O’Dowd messing around with Megan Fox in a bathing suit or undergarments. More Melissa McCarthy. More Michael Ian Black. Less depressing take on marriage and kids. Like, Married With Children made depressing funny.  Just make that on a more cinematic level. Let Paul Rudd run wild, really explore the space.
