so, i was watching TV the other day and they had this commercial for "Beano" stops gas before it starts! are they kidding me??? STOP GAS!!! c'mon..........that's one of the few remaining primal forms of pleasure we hold on to from our ancient ancestors. there's nothing like eating a good meal, and having that bloated slightly painful feeling in your gut, and just letting one rip and feeling OH so much better. if there was no more farting: it would no longer be funny to push our partners heads under the cover, just think how much laughter would be silenced amongst co-workers and students, how could we silently "clear" the room, there would be nothing left to blame on our friends in the elevator, the old lady at the grocery store, or our pets at home, 1000s of novelty manufactures would have to close shop as woopie cushions would no longer make sense. PLEASE PEOPLE........i urge you..........let's do everything we can to keep Beano and other products from fun killing manufacturer monsters out of the hands of the fun loving people. have you ever stepped on a frog???

Oh my...Yes, I have stepped on a fog by accident since they seem to think my back yard is their breeding grounds every year hundreds of frogs...can drive a person nuts listening to all the hoopla they go on about. I think beano is great..especially for woman. I don't know about the other woman in the population but I just don't like ripping them. So I would rather nip them in the bud with Gas-x or Beano.. Although hubby doesn't take them and he can get pretty annoying sometimes..

"stepping on a frog" can cause toxic fog to build up in confined quarters.

If you lived with camodad, you would change your mind about beano. No, I have never stepped on a frog.

*LMAO* that's good! I've never used beano but I'm told by hubby it works as he used to eat alot of bean based meals according to my SIL. Though I've been told SIL's gas when pregnant with her first that her gas was so horrid it could clear out a house & then toss in some vicious moodswings... EEK!

Typical of the Fun Police to get right in there and spoil one of the last remaining things we can do for FREE. Besides, a build-up of methane in the system would cause us to explode. Probably not fun. All the joy of children saying; 'Beans, beans, the musical fruit - the more you eat, the more you toot!' would be taken away forever. Killjoys ...

I know EXACTLY where ur coming from. I know many women in humanity have been forced to think girls farting is just disgusting but my first thought was... 'If i couldn't fart i wouldn;t be able to blame it on the cat' or laugh at the cheesiest jokes in the classrooms or at home. Or watch my mother turn bright red and run into the bathroom if she accidently let one slip out in front of men. I wouldn't do the loud variety but... sheesh no farting? It's just robbing fun out of life! But on the opposing side when a student in the class farted and got sent out for laughing at it... makes u wonder.. (wasn't me). It's one of the greatest compliments u can give a cook - such as burping. How many guys as compliments simply just release the most primal compliments after a good meal? thousands... why rob those compliments? Beano, stop robbing the cheesy fun in life! Thanks for standing up to this! x
