Come on! Toilets are always funny!
The Octopus, The Spirit

Simply put, toilet humour comprises jokes about weewees, poopoos, bums, fannies, willies, boobies, other naughty bits, fluids, farts and the immolation of them, boogers, bodily functions, and various other yucky stuff. It is very popular with young children, but as they grow up, they tend to find greater amusement in more witty jokes (at least, most of them do), and toilet humour is generally regarded with great dislike from the eyes of the mature audience.

Nowadays, toilet humour is very difficult to pull off without resorting to Refuge in Vulgarity.

Toilet humour is common on grossout shows and shows with large amounts of Dead Baby Comedy, but is not restricted to them. In a show which rarely relies on toilet humour, such instances tend to be Lampshaded (Oh, just what this episode needs - a fart joke). Often toilet humour is used as filler, which results in a Bottom of the Barrel Joke.

Almost guaranteed in pretty much anything with babies in it.

I Ate What? is the trope when eating is involved. Characters that are Gassholes and most instances of Fartillery are also usually meant for comedic purposes. Compare Nose Nuggets. Can be played very lightly via Calling Your Bathroom Breaks.

Examples of Toilet Humour include:

Advertising[edit | hide | hide all]

  • Apparently, this commercial for baby diapers working link here is a real Australian ad. Let's just say that the mother will be cleaning out her car for a while, and hope we never learn what a number four is...
  • There are a couple of somewhat popular ads that got uploaded to YouTube and other video sharing sites countless times. For example:
  • A campaign against secondhand smoke used the phrase "passing gas" instead of smoking in reference to the gases expelled from smoking cigarettes. The ads usually involved one character mentioning he or she needed to pass gas and the others would tell them to go to another room or do it outside as a narrator explained the dangers of "passing gas" in the presence of others.


Anime and Manga[edit | hide]

  • Kuromi from Onegai My Melody loves bathroom jokes.
  • Gintama, oh, god, Gintama.
  • To quote his Funimation VA, most of Shin Nohara's dialogue pretty much consists of "Farty poop fartfart".
  • Hajime no Ippo loves doing this. Especially when Takamura is involved.
  • Akira Toriyama is a master of this, with it forming a lot of the basis for Dr. Slump, and to a lesser degree the early years of Dragon Ball.
    • It's worth mentioning that Dr. Slump even goes as far as not only turning poop into a side character, but actually even giving it it's own episode.
  • The Sailor Moon manga would often deal with this more often than anime does. The special editions of the manga have all types of gags like this, like in one were the 5 girls were having a slumber party and they were asking each other weird kinds of questions, like when Mina asked Raye if she's ever farted. When Raye got mad at Mina at the end of the manga, she told Mina she's never farted but that Mina does all the time. The other 3 girls then start laughing.
  • In the DNA² anime and manga, two of the main characters have bodily function-related disorders: Junta vomits when he gets turned on and Kotomi farts when she gets nervous. This is Played for Laughs sometimes (ie: when Kotomi farts loudly during a romantic scene) but also Played for Drama in the I Just Want to Be Normal scenes.
  • In an early episode of the Monster Rancher anime series, Hare and Tiger are fighting in a tournament. In the original Japanese version (as well as many foreign versions), Hare wins the fight by tricking Tiger into letting his guard down and farting on him and the smell is so foul it knocks Tiger out. This scene is cut from the American dub and instead, Hare wins by punching Tiger out.
  • The Ping Pong Club is made of this trope. And Dead Baby Comedy.
  • In Bludgeoning Angel Dokurochan when you take off the angels' halo they'll get magical diarrhea.
  • Makoto-chan, ancestor of Crayon Shin-chan, is obsessed with poop and weenie jokes. Heck, the movie has one skit that consists of Makoto and his sister performing a play for their parents using their genitals.
  • Go Nagai is very fond of toilet humor as well. Especially people pissing their pants.
  • Naruto had a few examples early on, namely in the second episode of the anime where Naruto drinks badly spoiled milk, then his shadow clones all get diarrhea at once, fighting to get to the bathroom. In the Chunin Exam, Naruto won his match against Kiba strictly through a fortuitously timed fart that momentarily stunned Kiba when he had enhanced his sense of smell several hundred times.
    • It became a Running Gag; every time Naruto farted, Kiba was always in the vicinity.
    • Also Naruto had a habit for stepping in Dog poop, not mention Akamaru peed on his face once.
    • In the Spin-Off Rock Lee's Springtime of Youth The first couple pages has Lee stepping dog feces then kicking an enemy ninja in the face with it.

Lee: "Konoha Poop Sticker", I just stepped on this a few minutes ago.

  • The original Di Gi Charat series.
  • Makes up a good deal of the humor in Bobobo-Bo Bo-bobo. In particular, it's the specialty of Gasser and anyone talking about Softon (whose head is shaped like... ahem, chocolate soft-serve custard... yeah).
  • Sgt Frog has lots of fart jokes. There's also a manga chapter, "The Shocking Survivalist Sergeant", where Keroro holes up in the Hinata family bathroom after an argument with Natsumi, and ends up taking a bath in the toilet.
  • Burutabu-chan: Yes. (NSFW)
  • Yondemasuyo, Azazel-san is also a prime example, what with feces being an essential part of fly demon Beelzebub's diet.
  • While most of the humor in One Piece doesn't rely on this, the series has its moments. For example, three of the characters (Franky and Hotori/Kotori) use farts as weapons. One of Brook's quirks is that he pretends to be a gentleman, but always burps and farts at meals. And then there was a scene in Skypiea where Luffy, Nami and some other characters were trapped in the belly of a giant snake. Luffy immediately suggested that they should find their way out through its asshole.
    • A samurai the main characters meet is able to talk through his butt via farting.
  • Digimon Adventure seemed to have a thing for Digimon relieving themselves everywhere at the least appropriate times, best exemplified by the Numemon species which attacks solely through flinging its shit. Thankfully, after one final instance of a urinating angry Tortomon being a Monster of the Week in Digimon Adventure 02, the rest of the franchise has pretty much discarded this brand of humour (and whenever a Numemon appears it's never clarified that they're flinging faeces).
    • Not to forget Scamon who basically is a giant talking turd. There was a toilet-humour filled omake about it in the V-Tamer manga.
  • Panty and Stocking With Garterbelt: The first episode is about a literal shit-monster attacking Daten City.
  • One of Shonen Jump's most popular gag series of the 70's was the appropriatelly titled Professor Toilet.
  • There isn't a single kind of human waste that didn't make it into Super Radical Gag Family.
  • Tomoko from It's Not My Fault I'm Not Popular! tries this, only succeeding in making her "audience" think she really needs to go.

Comic Books[edit | hide]


Eastern Animation[edit | hide]

  • Aachi and Ssipak has an entire plot that revolves around a future where feces is the main source of power and the main characters are protecting a hooker who has very... *ahem* generous bowels.


Film[edit | hide]

Pelican's Friend: Nice.

  • The Lion King somehow managed to do toilet humour tastefully.
    • The Lion King 1 1/2 has the hot tub scene...in which the bubbles stop as soon as Pumba leaves the hot tub.
  • Drop Dead Fred includes a scene where he tracks dog poop on the carpet with his shoes.
  • The italian christmas comedies are made of this. You might wonder why they keep making them.
  • Star Wars: Episode I had a creature on Tatooine fart in Alien Scrappy Jar Jar's face. Makes me feel unclean just thinking about it.
    • An earlier scene also has Jar Jar accidently stepping in what appears to be fresh bantha dung.

Jar Jar: Ohh! Icky, icky goo!

  • The epic campfire scene in Blazing Saddles features a crew of cowboys eating beans and delivering a storm of farts and belches. The scene was actually considered edgy in its day.
    • It's rather surreally subverted by the early television broadcasts of the film though, as the sound effects for that scene were removed by the censors, leaving a two-minute sequence of cowboys sat round campfires eating and periodically standing up then sitting again, while the fires flare slightly.
    • Later versions had horses whinnying when they stood up, which was even more surreal.
  • During a party in Amadeus, Mozart does some humorous impressions. When Salieri (in disguise) asks, "Do Salieri", Mozart launches into a snorting, gibberish-laden parody while playing "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" that ends with a truly epic fart.
  • Max Keeble's Big Move got slammed by critics, in part because of this (the other part was lack of originality).
  • There are two kinds of jokes in the Austin Powers movies. If it's not making fun of the spy genre, it's this.
    • WHO DOES NUMBER TWO WORK FOR!?
  • Spinal Tap does this often. "It's called, lick my love pump."
  • Quite a few toilet jokes happen in the Shrek series, although there are many non-toilet jokes also.
  • Evan Almighty loves making bird poop jokes. If you see a bird on screen, something will be stained.
  • "You know, the question I get asked most often is, how do I go to the bathroom while wearing my suit? ......just like that."
  • Very common in films of The View Askewniverse. It was made part of a half-joking musing by Holden in Chasing Amy.

Holden: My grandmother once said, "Holden, the real money is in dick and fart jokes." She was a churchgoer her whole life.

Native guide 1: Bad guy falls in poop! Classic element of physical comedy! Now comes the part where we throw our heads back and laugh! Ready?
Other guides: Ready!
All: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

  • In a very unlikely place to find this trope, 2001: A Space Odyssey has a scene where Floyd is reading a long, detailed list of instructions on how to use the Zero Gravity Toilet.
  • Shark Tale, one of many lesser Dreamworks movies that had gone for gross-out humor. One of the jellyfish had made a wee-wee joke and to what they had called Oscar.
  • Igor had made this kind of humor when the igor of Glickenstein's rival said that the jakoozie is not a bathroom.
  • Delgo, being somewhat schizophrenic in its attempts to decide exactly which demographic it was trying to appeal to, naturally stooped to a bit of this. In particular is a scene in which an animal that, though it previously averted All Animals Are Dogs, proceeded to lift its leg in dog-like fashion to pee on a man, which was apparently included for no other reason than to appeal to small children and the hard of thinking.
  • Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle: Would you like to play battleshits?
  • Disney's The Wild had lots of poop jokes, when they weren't focusing on slapstick humor.
  • A very mild form of this trope: At one point in The Princess and the Frog, Ray the firefly yells, "Don't make me light my butt!" at the shadow demons. Not funny.
  • In The Party, Bakshi (Peter Sellers) has to take a leak, but can't find an unoccupied bathroom. Getting increasingly desperate, he starts to cross a room when the girl he's sweet on starts singing for a crowd - he stops out of politeness and writhes in smiling agony for the duration. After he finally relieves himself in the master bathroom the toilet won't stop running, and in his attempt to fix it, he breaks the tank lid on the floor, drops a watercolor painting into the tank, and floods the room.

Literature[edit | hide]

  • Artemis Fowl: pretty much any scene involving Mulch Diggums.
  • Turns up sometimes in Welkin Weasels, most notably in the bit where Scirf escapes the tower by climbing down the garderobe (toilet which drains into the lake).

Sylver: "But why didn't you call out to us?"
Scirf: "Couldn't. Had my mouth full."
Sylver chose not to delve any further into this line of enquiry.

  • Dav Pilkey's Captain Underpants books have large amounts of it, which is most often evident from their titles alone, although they also balance it with a healthy dose of social satire.
  • In The Vor Game, Miles, on assignment at an arctic outpost, is replaced as the base laughingstock by a group of cadets who accidentally set the barracks on fire by lighting their farts.
  • The Dung Bombs!
  • The 16th century novel Gargantua has the protagonist discuss one whole chapter what's the best material to wipe one's ass.
  • In Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, in response to the grandparents taking too much Wonka-Vite, the Oompa-Loompas perform a song telling the sad tale of a little girl who foolishly helped herself to the tastiest-looking stuff in her grandma's medicine cabinet — which turned out to be chocolate-flavored laxatives... It takes up several pages.
  • Another Roald Dahl example is in The BFG, where the titular Big Friendly Giant explains how he hates human soda, which has rising bubbles, thus causing the drinker to burp. Burping is phenomenally rude to giants, so instead they drink frobscottle, which has bubbles that sink, thus causing the drinker to... well... whizzpopper!
  • Municipal by Rudyard Kipling is a dramatic (and almost epic) proof that this sort of humour is not always cheap.
  • Uncle John's Bathroom Reader zig-zags this. One page will have a fart joke, the next will have a scientific article on why we pass gas, and the third will have an article about something crazy like a gold-plated toilet.
  • In Derek Robinson's novel of the Battle of Britain, we first learn why Air Commodore Bletchley is nick-named "Baggy". Then his death is described in excruciating detail - he becomes trapped in a portable chemical toilet when the air-raid siren goes. Deciding to cross his fingers and sit it out - well, squat it out - he chooses wrongly and the whole lavatory is seen bowling across the airstrip, propelled by a hail of cannon and machine-gun fire from a strafing German plane.
  • Later in the book, the same, or perhaps a replacement, chemical toilet becomes the downfall of resident bastard Moggy Cattermole, at the hands of a meek new pilot he has been bullying.
  • In London, a much-abused construction worker lures his Jerkass foreman beneath the shaft of a half-built garderobe and then defecates down the shaft. He'd also prepared for this event by eating a huge meal some hours beforehand...
  • Letters Back to Ancient China, since Kao-tai (the narrator/protagonist, a time-travelling mandarin from medieval China) doesn't know how modern German toilets work and didn't want to ask. But it's still done in as good taste as possible.
  • 'The Divine Comedy, particularly in Inferno, has several passages which indulge in discussion of wallowing in feces, staring at one's own gluteus, and the like. Perhaps most famous is the ending line of Canto XXIII, frequently translated as "And he made a trumpet of his ass."
  • The Canterbury Tales mixes in several tales of bawdy, scatalogical humor amongst more devout tales, for example with The Miller's Tale.
  • Predictable from the title of Who Cut the Cheese? by Stilton Jarlsberg, delivered in the early pages, tapers off.
  • In Who Cut the Cheese? by Mason Brown, it's more conspicuous than in Jarlsberg's take.

Live Action TV[edit | hide]

  • Not even Firefly avoids it, with Simon stepping in bull crap.
  • Blackadder Goes Forth has a joke about this trope:

The Red Baron: "How lucky you English are to find the toilet so amusing! For us, it is a mundane and functional item. For you, the basis of an entire culture!"

The Doctor: Excuse me, but would you mind not farting while I'm saving the world?

  • In Harry Enfield and Chums, Wayne is watching a Show Within a Show that consists entirely of someone reciting "Willy. Bottom. Dirty pants. Women's dirty pants." Wayne laughs uproariously at each one.
  • Farscape takes toilet humour and runs with it, especially with regard to Rigel's digestive system which has at various points produced exploding poop, toxic farts, and incendiary urine. There's a reason for the show's Fan Nickname of "Fartscape".
  • Even Seinfeld used this, most often with pee. One episode had a plot that involved George being banned from a local gym for getting caught peeing in the shower. Another episode featured a Potty Emergency with Jerry, resulting in him getting a ticket for public urination. In one episode, Kramer was supposed to be taking Susan's parents on a ride in a horse drawn carriage, but since the horses were gassy, they had to stop the ride early because they couldn't stand the smell. One episode also had a plot involving Jerry refusing to eat at a restaurant because he caught the chef using the bathroom without washing his hands. In the episode, "The Couch," Poppie pees on Jerry's couch.
  • One unaired MythBusters episode featured "Facts About Flatulence," where they tested myths about farting, such as "is it possible to light a fart?" Hilarity Ensues when they have to answer the age old question "do pretty girls fart?" and, in the name of science, try to catch Kari letting one rip.
    • It was aired in Australia. That's just how we roll.
  • In that vein, Beakman's World had quite a few fart jokes in its last season...but saved its segment on flatulence for the very last show. (Hey, you can't cancel us twice, right? Well...)
  • The Young Ones handled this trope proudly and creatively, some choice scenes involving a golf ball being hit into a toilet (while someone's on it), a 'just follow your nose' joke, Vyvyan blowing up the house with a massive fart, and Rik trying to kill himself with laxatives.
    • At one point, the toilet itself spoke up and made a joke.
  • On 30 Rock, the sketches on TGS seem to involve farts quite a bit.

Carol: There’s this one Fart Doctor sketch where Fart Doctor’s trying to figure out who farted in the spelling bee.
Liz: He who spelt it, dealt it. I wrote that! I wrote all the Fart Doctors!

  • Al's love for his toilet (the mighty Ferguson!) was one of the staple gags of Married... with Children.
  • Dick and Dom in da Bungalow, being for kids, has a heck of a lot of this sort of humour. They would play in live farty sound effects whenever it seemed appropriate, and then there was the turtle's head puppet that lived in the toilet and told bad jokes, and so very much on.
  • Merlin did it when Merlin let loose a goblin that did a lot of nasty and embarrasing things around the castle. One of them was Morgana and possibly Uther farting.
  • Round the Twist is a kids show with copious amounts of this, including urinating contests and all sorts of other gross bodily-function based comedy.
  • Even Bones got in on it briefly.

Brennan: "He who smelt it, dealt it."
Booth: How do you even know that phrase?

  • Two and A Half Men uses this rather often in Season 9, most notably the episode "Not In My Mouth" which has nonstop barrage of vomiting gags.


Music[edit | hide]

  • An improbably highbrow example can be found in Mozart's vocal canon "Leck Mich im Arsch" ("lick me in the arse", or figuratively "kiss my arse").
  • Indie folk singer/songwriter Kimya Dawson has been known to incorporate bodily functions into some of her lyrics since she started writing music. However, when she recorded a children's album entitled Alphabutt, she was sure to cram in as much toilet humor as possible for the kids. The title track alone features lines like "F is for fart/G is for gorilla fart, H is for huge gorilla fart."
  • Monty Python has an audio only version of this on one of their records about embarrassment. It goes on to ask if any of these noises embarrass you. Sounds of various Squicky bodily functions follow.
    • The soundtrack album of Monty Python and the Holy Grail features "live" coverage of a screening of the movie at the Classic in Silbury Hills. Part of the coverage takes place in the men's room of the theater where Michael Palin describes the construct and the fixtures.
  • Composer Johann Heinrich Schmelzer wrote a sonata called "The Day of the Fart", where a bassoon inserts farting sounds into the music.
  • Punk rock band The Descendents' album Enjoy! was panned by critics because of this.
  • Frank Zappa used this on occasion, perhaps most famously on "Don't Eat the Yellow Snow" and the Joe's Garage album.
  • While Ween's humor is usually either more surreal or satirical in nature, they delve into this occasionally, such as "Poop Ship Destroyer."
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic has been known to include burping and farting sounds into his music, especially clearly in "My Bologna" and "Smells Like Nirvana". He seems to be toning this down lately, though.
  • Yoko Ono's album Fly had the track "Toilet Piece," consisting entirely of the sound of a toilet flushing.
  • A 1999 novelty album, "Jingle Smells," was released. The CD was nothing but Christmas songs performed with farting. Entertainment Weekly gave the CD a grade of "F".
  • Paul Boomer vs. Lord Windesmere...in The Great Crepitation Contest of 1946.
  • Rob Balder's Filk Song "Ars Musica - It Had to Be You" [1] is basically a Hurricane of Fart Jokes. Slightly squicky, in the artist's words.
  • Spinal Tap likes a bit of the fart humor - their first live album was Silent But Deadly, while their 1992 reunion album was Break Like The Wind. The connotations of certain Tap song titles such as "Nice 'n' Stinky" probably aren't worth considering.


Newspaper Comics[edit | hide]

  • Marvin...just the entire run of Marvin.
  • Gary Larson liked putting outhouse jokes into The Far Side, though he did have a problem getting them past his editors in the early years.


Professional Wrestling[edit | hide]

  • John Cena occasionally pulls this out for the kids.
  • Who can forget the time Eddie Guerrero gave The Big Show a tainted burrito, giving him diarrhea in the middle of a match, and then stealing all the toilet paper from the toilet stalls before he got in? And the next week, Eddie Guerrero sprayed The Big Show down with a hose connected to a septic truck.


Radio[edit | hide]


Stand-Up Comedy[edit | hide]

  • Bill Cosby's famous standup act, Bill Cosby: Himself featured a rant about how fathers are the most fun family members because they're the only ones allowed to have gas. He also discussed how his father used to blame his farts on invisible animals.
  • Eddie Murphy has a bit in Delirious that starts off with farting in the bath tub and ends with a turd, a cracked skull and his brother with a G.I. Joe up his butt.
  • Larry the Cable Guy is notorious for overusing this.
  • Oh, Bob Saget. The comedy special That Ain't Right features lighting farts, an examination of the potential literal meaning of the phrase "fuck that shit", a man from Spain getting his head stuck up an elephant's ass, and that time where Bob got garlic diarrhea after eating at The Stinking Rose and then used it to kill a vampire.


Theatre[edit | hide]

  • The Clouds: At one point, Strepsiades is speaking to one of the students at the Thinkery, surrounded by kneeling students. When he's told that they are studying the reaches of Hell, he's quick to point out that their "third eyes" are facing the sky.


Video Games[edit | hide]

  • Conker's Bad Fur Day is built on a foundation of poop jokes.
    • Really, what can you say when the best boss in the game is called the Great Mighty Poo?
    • Another Rareware example is Banjo-Kazooie. Sure, it's not to the point of Conker's Bad Fur Day, but the game still contained a lot of toilet humor. One level involves going into a sewer and has burps and farts as a part of the background music. Captain Blubber's speech sound was him burping numerous times and one mini game involves getting into an eating contest with a crocodile that burps every time it eats something. Judging by the sound effects, Kazooie also seems to fart out her eggs rather than laying them. Also, one of the random facts about Gruntilda the player can learn is that her party trick is "blowing up balloons with her butt."
  • The comedy in the Wario series in general, spun off from the Mario series, is made up of an extensive combination of toilet humor and just inexplicably random jokes.
  • Beyond Good and Evil makes it pretty clear that Pey'j's jet boots are fart-powered, without actually saying so. Specifically, they're "fueled by a pocket of natural methane" [cue closeup on his rear end] "--just flex your abdominal muscles!"
  • The TurboGrafx-16 game Toilet Kids is like Xevious if it were full of toilet humour. Enemies range from turtles with poop shells to toilets that shoot dungballs at you.
  • Most people are inherently suspicious of the Diamond and Pearl starter Pokémon Chimchar, being a chimp with flames rising from his backside, but if they aren't sure yet, the Pokedex data does the rest, "Its fiery rear-end is fueled by gas produced in its belly." Zing!
  • Wizkid's farting volcanoes.
  • The Breath of Fire series does this not once but twice, and as actual parts of the plot at that:
    • In II, there is actually a dungeon entered by jumping in a toilet.
    • In IV, there is a segment where one must essentially meet up with fairies...and obtain Fairy Drops. As an intrinsic magical ingredient to reforge a broken sword. And the Drunken Master of the party even comments in horror that it's fairy shit.
  • In Left 4 Dead 2's "The Passing" campaign, graffiti near one of the toilets reads "NO TOILET IS SAFE FROM POOPING KEVIN!"
  • Marshall Law's ending in Tekken 6 has him make off with the prize money he earned together with Paul and Steve by putting laxatives in their pizza and escaping while they're... out.
  • You can spot soldiers taking piss several times in the Metal Gear Solid games, specifically, Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty even let you stand under it.
    • Metal Gear Solid made up for not being able to stand under it with being able to take piss from wolves! And this is not only comedic relief, this actually serves as a gameplay mechanic: Snake is immune to wolf attack after having wolf piss on him (the wolves will think he's one of them).
  • The old SNES and Sega Genesis game, Boogerman: A Pick and Flick Adventure, is a game where you can enter toilets the way Mario goes down pipes and your attacks involve throwing boogers, burping, and farting on your enemies.
  • In Super Paper Mario, O'Chunks farts to fly away after being defeated in battle. There's also a Potty Emergency where Squirps needs to go to the bathroom but can't get in until you give its current occupant a piece of paper.
  • Even The Legend of Zelda has it from time to time. In Majoras Mask, one sidequest involves giving a piece of paper from a hand that comes out of a toilet to wipe with. In The Wind Waker, some of the pigs in the game fart when you pick them up.
  • Many MMORPG games feature "emotes" - brief animations, text, and/or sounds that let your character perform an action irrelevant to the rest of the game, such as making your character laugh, dance, or cry. It's not uncommon for such games to also include options to make your character burp and/or fart.
    • In the game files for World of Warcraft, you can find a handful of outtakes that weren't used in the game. One of which was a /joke command that would make a human female character say "I like to fart in the tub."
    • In Free Realms, there was a period where you could use emotes to burp and fart. A later patch removed the fart emote, but it is still possible to make your character fart by doing a quest where the reward is a flatulence-causing potion.
  • Final Fantasy VII, during a cross-dress up quest, there's a man in a bar's toilet that Cloud can open. You have to give one of the medicine to help the man to relieve himself.
  • In The Sims, giving a Sim a "slob" trait causes him or her to burp and fart randomly without inhibition. There's also a social interaction in which one Sim invites the other to pull their finger, followed by the expected results.
    • Messy Sims in Sims 2 will burp and fart during/after meals. Also, the Cow mascot in University will burp in Sims faces, and some will like it and burp back!
  • Even the Ace Attorney series isn't immune to this. In case 2-3, Moe the Clown tells a fart joke on the witness stand if you press one of his statements. And Trials and Tribulations has even more examples, from Phoenix's obsession with cleaning the toilet to his infamous line in case 3-1:

Phoenix: Toilet?! My perfect little Dollie doesn't poop!

  • In Fable (at least in the second game), you can interact with NPCs using various expressions, including burping and farting. Done right, both seem quite popular amongst Albion's inhabitants, save for the most serious citizens. But fail these and you'll have to face the rather unpleasant and disgusting consequences.
    • In Fable 3, this is turned Up to Eleven. Not only can you only do both in NPCs' faces, the smell of your character's farts are so potent they make the NPC pass out during the animation.
  • Death Maze 2000 was a game for the Radio Shack TRS 80 in which one used the keyboard to navigate a block graphics maze. To save time and keystrokes getting to the end of a long straight hallway, you could type "fart", which would blow you down the hall until you slammed into the wall at the end.
  • Lampshaded in Strong Bads Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 2: Strong Badia The Free by clicking on the Toilet.

Strong Bad: Ah, toilet humor.
Strong Bad: Oh, potty humor.
Strong Bad: Uh, commode humor.

  • Some moves in the Monster Rancher games were more humorous in nature. One group of those moves is Hare's Gas attacks (Gas, Foul Gas, and Stinking Gas), which do just what you'd think.
  • In Team Fortress 2, one of the Sniper unlocks is Jarate, a jar of pee he can use to throw at enemies. It also extinguishes teammates that are on fire from an enemy Pyro.
    • A few days before the short "Meet the Medic" was released, the TF2 website was updated to have Medic's pigeons perched on the logo banner, and pigeon poop splattered all over it.
  • German mini game Pipiprinz. Based on a Real Life event when Ernst August von Hannover would get drunk at the EXPO 2000, urinate in public, was photographed by a paparazzi and beat him up with his umbrella. What the game is about? Drink beer, urinate when "full", and beat up photographers.
  • Pretty much the entire point of the indie Xbox 360 arcade game, Try Not to Fart, in which the goal is to hold it all in near your date.
  • From Dissidia Duodecim, after Kefka eavesdrops on Cloud and Kuja's heart to heart talk:

Kefka Palazzo: What's this? The brooder and the narcissist having a heart-to-heart? Oh this is rich--so rich it gives me gas! Gives me gas, I say! ho ho! (farting sound) And I give it back.

  • Aside from being an obvious Chekhov's Gunman, the Plumber's sole purpose in life seems to be providing toilet humour... occasionally, he takes this to new extremes.
  • This is common in games of the Shrek franchise. Of course, given the nature of the movies they're based on...
  • Playing up the toilet humour to ridiculous levels was pretty much the entire point of EarthBound's infamous advertising campaign; remember, this is the campaign which proclaimed its subject to be the "first RPG with BO". The game (and series) itself does touch briefly on it on occasion, but definitely nowhere near to the extent that the campaign implied.
  • Okami allows you to piss and shit on enemies.
  • The Duke Nukem series has a few instances:
    • Duke Nukem 3D lets the player use the toilet to recover 10% of his health (once every 10 minutes), or he can destroy the toilet and drink the water spewing out to eventually regain all health.
    • Also in Duke Nukem 3D, the map Lunar Reactor has a "restricted area" sign above a door. The only room it leads to is the washroom.
    • Duke Nukem Forever. The trailer featured one's ability to piss forever at a urinal.
  • The Playstation 2 video game "A Dog's Life", which was like a Grand Theft Auto game starring a dog, allowed the player to enter certain button combinations (all of which were in the manual) to make the playable canine fart, pee and poop. Taken to the extreme in that you could also make the dog pick up his own fecal matter in his mouth and throw it at people. Because of this, the game ended up with a Teen rating, despite the fact that the rest of the game is very obviously intended for younger audiences.

  • The Angry Video Game Nerd, specifically diarrhea in this case.
    • "He'd rather have a buffalo take a diarrhea dump in his ear."
  • A Zero Punctuation video is apparently never complete without a visual-assisted pun on crap, usually the "full of" or "cramming down people's throats" variety.
  • YouTube LPer NintendoCapriSun is quite reputable for this.
    • "Get some more toilet paper!"
      • "You know, IN THE BATHROOM!"
  • A brave soul watched through several hours of footage from televangelist Robert Tilton's show Success-N-Life, compiled his often strange facial expressions and exclamations, and added well-timed farts for a video series known as The Farting Preacher.
  • Used by That Guy With The Glasses on occasion. For example, during the Nostalgia Critic's review for Battlefield Earth, after asking one of the aliens from the film how they conquered Earth despite their bad war tactics, the alien revealed his race won because they fart atomic bombs. At the end of his review of The Garbage Pail Kids Movie, the movie transformed the Critic into sentient feces. In his review for "The Nerd vs NC: The Final Battle," Chester A. Bum stated, "I can make fireballs too! All I need is a lighter and a can of beans. You may think that joke's beneath me... but it's not."
  • Star Farts and The Empire Farts Back.
  • A Brazilian meme involved mixing the digestion-helping yogurt Activia with something else leading to scatological phrases (the original was "I mixed Activia and Johnnie Walker. I'm shitting and walking".)
  • Most scenes in the Whateley Universe that include Miasma. His superpower? Farts. Even his friends give him grief about this. Unless he's giving someone grief using his superpower.
  • Obscurus Lupa seems to have a thing for fart jokes. She seems to have made them more often than any other TGWTG reviewer.


Western Animation[edit | hide]

  • There's enough toilet humor in Aaahh Real Monsters to go around.
  • The Freakazoid! episode "Sewer or Later" is built around this.
  • Rugrats: Of course, given the age of the main characters, it's expected in each episode.
  • Many of the jokes in Drawn Together rely on this. It was even used as a plot point on at least one occasion when Spanky left the show because critics thought his fart jokes detracted from the show.
  • South Park has heaps of it.
    • Terrence and Phillip's shtick is deliberately nothing but this - they were in fact created when Matt and Trey read a critics review stating how South Park was nothing more than badly animated characters telling fart-jokes for 20 minutes. They thought that sounded like a great idea.
    • It was more prominent in the earlier seasons than it is in the recent seasons, which take on more socio-political matters. But there's still plenty of vomiting.
  • Family Guy indulges in it in every episode. This includes domestic abuse.

"In the television comedy world, the people are entertained by two separate yet equally important types of shows: traditional sitcoms that get laughs at of everyday situations like trying to fix your own plumbing or inviting two dates at the same dance, and animated shows that make jokes about farting. This is the latter."

Fanboy: Hey Kyle! It's pizza day! Come play pizza monkeys with us!
Kyle: You two are... pizza monkeys? What do you do, throw your poopparoni?
Fanboy and Chum Chum burst out with laughter
Kyle (sighing): I'm witty day after day - and this is what they laugh at.

  • MAD: Episode 1, Part 1: "AVATURD".
  • Warner Bros. cartoons probably had the earliest instances of toilet humor. 1938's "Porky's Badtime Story" (remade in 1944 as "Tick Tock Tuckered") had a leaky roof that deposited rain drops on the bed on which Porky and Gabby Goat (Daffy Duck in 1944) were sleeping. Gabby (Daffy) wakes up, sees the puddle between him and Porky and gives Porky a rather irritated look.
    • There are a number of gags in Looney Tunes and Tex Avery's MGM cartoons built around bedpans.
  • A good bit of toilet humor can be found on The Powerpuff Girls, most notably in the episode "Pee Pee G's," where one of the girls is presumed to be a bed-wetter.
  • Phineas and Ferb has it every now and then, but one of the most notable examples is in "Tree to Get Ready", when Doofenschmirtz invents the "Poop-inator", a device that makes his army of pigeons crap on whatever target he wants them to.
  • Animaniacs does this with Wakko Warner and his burps and constant references to the potty.
  • In Tak and the Power of Juju not only that Lok had mentioned toilet brush, but many of the "human" characters look like poops with eyeballs.
  • My Gym Partner's a Monkey
  • CatDog
  • Yin Yang Yo
  • The ChalkZone episode, Big Loo
  • Johnny Test
  • My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic has made several references to this particular biological function: in "Winter Wrap Up", when Twilight Sparkle fails to make a decent bird's nest, Rarity tries to sugarcoat it by suggesting the birds can use it for something else - and Spike suggests, "An outhouse?"; in "Sweet and Elite", one of Rarity's excuses to switch parties is that she has to "use the little filly's room"; and most notably, "Baby Cakes" has diaper changing among the many responsibilities of babysitting... and judging from the stench lines, it's for that reason.
    • In "The Last Roundup", Pinkie Pie has a Potty Emergency and uses the outhouse after Applejack.
    • The Pinkie Pie's Playhouse Newborn Cuties playset has a toilet included. In the ad, the girl says "Uh oh! Pinkie Pie's gotta go!", then the camera shows her on the toilet, which plays music.
  • In the Popples episode "Museum Peace", the Pufflings turn into a bird and drop an egg on one of the Popples. In case you don't know, this is a kid-friendly version of birds pooping on people's heads!
    • In the episode "The Jellybean Jamboree", Party uses a toilet plunger to grab a lollipop painting off the wall. Maybe she has a toilet in her pouch!
  • Jane and the Dragon: Some episodes had scenes where Dragon farts.
    • Not to mention one episode had the characters playing dung wars!
  • On Adventure Time, one could probably make a good Drinking Game from every reference to butts, farts, and the like. Also:

Lumpy Space Princess: AAAAAGH!! I'M DYING!! (flushes toilet)

  • In The Legend of Korra episode "The Voice in the Night" where at one point Tenzin has to chase after his son Meelo, who has apparently decided that something at the fancy party they're at is a toilet.
  • Bob's Burgers veers into toilet humor frequently, like a shopping cart with a bad wheel in the toilet humor aisle - perhaps to be expected with three school-age kids in the family.


Real Life[edit | hide]

  • Older Than Feudalism: Flatuists, A.K.A. professional farters, are people paid to fart on command. The earliest known flatuist was mentioned by St. Augustine of Hippo in his book, "City of God", which was written in the 5th Century A.D.
  • "Fart Proudly" was the title of an essay by Benjamin Franklin. You read that right.
  • The "Fart Joke" is the oldest joke in the world. No... Seriously.
  • The Maasai people of Tanzania, a nomadic tribe known for wearing toga-like wraps instead of Western apparel, refer to Westerners as iloredaa enjekat, or "those who hold their farts in with trousers".
  • Leslie Nielsen's gravestone reads "Let 'er rip."
  • Comedian Michael Bentine recalls his life as Intelligence Officer to an Australian bomber squadron during WW 2. The Germans made a war crimes protest to Switzerland that had to be investigated at the highest levels and which led back to Bentine's squadron, who had been indenting for more than the ususal amount of replacement chemical toilets, claiming the onboard lavatories had been damaged beyond repair by enemy flak. It turned out that every time the toilets got full, rather than have them drained and cleaned on return to base, the earthy Aussies had been ejecting them over German towns and cities as an additional, unofficial, weapon of war, hoping to splash the maximun possible number of Germans as a courtesy detail to go with the bombs. The Germans protested formally about noxious chemical warfare, the Swiss Red Cross formally investigated, and all RAF crews were officially forbidden to empty aircraft toilets over Germany...
