Fart is actually air from our tummy

If you don’t release it, it feels constipating

If you do, it is embarrassing

If you don’t, retaining it is not healthy

About this rhyme/saying:~

This rhyme /saying is about the effects  flatulence if retained..

The author/owner has compiled for record, a collection of early Hokkien sayings, proverbs, rhymes and ditties to capture the essence and spirit of his hoi polloi, a community originating from the southern province of Fujian, China where individuals climbed aboard bum boats, crossing the South China Sea to settle in faraway lands to escape the brewing civil unrest and a way out from hardship carrying along with them in their journey, nothing except their trademark ponytails and their beliefs, very much rooted in Confucianism. These ditties retell their story and their lifestyle way back then so that the younger generation can gain an insight and foothold to their origin..

silhouetting serpent

Many a great men has fallen for many a great time~ being incensed, coiled

and smothered by those slithery unending curves of some  genteel  specie

that contours the tree silhouetting as  a  serpent  depicted  in  the  Book  of

Genesis.

statistics

I hate people who support their arguments with statistics. You shaped

them with your ideology and policies to make them how they are today.

They  are  a  by  product  at  the  finishing  end  of  your   conveyor   belt.

Therefore you shape your own statistics.
