“The art of the musical anus is reviewed in the light of its most prominent performers and of anorectal physiological aspects related to this specific musical performance.”

Thanks to Tracy for today’s ROFL!

    Are there musical anuses with high performance in classical music and others that excel in Techno? Does anal musical performance decrease with age as does the human voice? These questions truely need to be addressed in future studies!

    The paper suffers from a few unreferenced statements. Especially this one [my translation from Danish]:
    "…and if you go to the net, you will be able to find a neat young woman by the name of Flatulina, who, wearing a sexy Santa Claus outfit, farts her way through 'Jingle Bells'. So the art form is alive!"
    The author should definitely have provided a link here.
