Part of being human is having to pas gas occasionally. That doesn’t make it any less embarrassing though. No likes having to fart in public unless, of course, you are still a toddler that has literally no shame. Really, kids are pretty much the only ones who find farting funny.
For the rest of us adults, it’s a bodily function we are desperately always trying to prevent.
If flatulence is a problem for you or someone you know, common sense would say that perhaps a diet change is in order. However, at least one inventor, Christian Poincheval, begs to differ. The Frenchman has come up with a completely different solution.
Instead of trying to prevent your farts or hide them, why not just change the reason behind why we dislike them so much?
In other words, Poincheval asks why not just get rid of the foul smell? Luckily, now you can. His company, Lutin Malin, recently released a pill that supposedly will actually make your farts smell nice.
“The official site for the pill that makes your flatulences smell of roses,” the headline on the website reads.
There is also quite an interesting story behind why the pill was originally created.
Apparently, the lightbulb moment occurred to Poincheval during a dinner party among him and his buddies.
“…we were at table with friends after a copious meal when we nearly asphyxiated ourselves with our smelly farts. The gas wasn’t that great for our table neighbours. So something had to be done about this. You can disguise the sound of a fart but not the stench…” Poincheval said.
When you have to fart, you have to fart. However, the other tables next to Poincheval and his friend’s booth at the restaurant were less than pleased with their gas passing antics.
They decided it was a problem that needed to be solved immediately, and soon after The Fart Pill was born.
“The Fart Pill is the result of lengthy research and trials and is on sale since 2007. Our fragrant variants also add a touch of humour for any occasion.”
The pill is offered in a variety of floral scents including violet, lily, and roses, as well as chocolate and ginger.
Technically, also, the pill is not actually considered a drug but is instead sold as an all natural dietary supplement. The main ingredient in The Fart Pill is charcoal which helps prevent the fermentation of decomposing matter during digestion — one of the main causes of gas. The perfumed aspect, however, is a company secret.
Lutin Malin swears that the pills actually do, in fact, work too.
“Our numerous returning customers are no doubt the best proof,” the website says.
However, the fact that Lutin Malin literally stands for “Cunning Imp” when translated into English does represent some cause for concern.
If you have some spare cash lying around though, we say, why not? You can find out for yourself whether they work for the low price of around $20. That will get you one bottle of 60 pills, of which you are supposed to take two to six per day.
And in case you were wondering, yes, they also offer a fart pill for dogs too.
Stinky canine farts are now a thing of the past.
“Does your dog fart and stink – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! No more car hauls with windows wound down or interrupted dinner with guests. We have created a version of our fart pill for animals in the form of powder. Just add it to their bowl and enjoy.”
While Lutin Malin might not be the most revolutionary company we’ve ever heard of, it certainly is one of the goofiest. Joke product or legit dietary product? That’s up to you to decide. However, their funny sales pitch certainly got a laugh out of us.
