Something About the Irish...

Miscellaneous knowledge category:

... have not read Greer Ramsey, "A breath of fresh air: rectal music in Gaelic Ireland," Archaeology Ireland 16.1 (Spring 2002) 22-23, but apparently the article discusses the braigeteóir, or professional farter.

Well, every country has its own, ah, quirks.

This is not a quirk; it is an art form. We find music (and mirth) in everything!

Slainté!

P.S. The Germans would have such a thing otherwise; my hunch is that they'd weaponize it, and use it to invade someone.
