Flatulence:
Nerve endings in the rectum usually enable individuals to distinguish between flatus and feces, although loose stool can confuse the individual, occasionally resulting in accidental defecation also known as "wet farts", "sharting", "varting", "gambling and losing", "dookie fart", "Leaky Pete" or "following through". [citation needed]
It is of course the "citation needed" that makes this such a winner. I can hear the wikipedant addressing wikitalk following his daily review of flatulence: "We're going to need a citation on 'Leaky Pete', folks. Can't let crap like that slip through."

(Yes, I know what you're thinking, but remember I have a three-week-old. What's YOUR excuse?)

I'm much more curious as to what train of thought led you to look up flatulence in Wikipedia in the first place...

So it turns out I knew what you were thinking, but you didn't know I knew what you were thinking. Perhaps you thought what I was thinking you were thinking was some other thought altogether.

So, given you named-that-thought-in-one, from which thoughts do we need to exculpate ourselves?

"wet farts", "sharting", "varting", "gambling and losing", "dookie fart", "a Hellmuth", "Leaky Pete" or "following through".

The classic rec.gambling.poker trip report by Mark "Rummpelmintz" Shantz springs to mind as a perfect citation...
