We've had to ban potty talk from the dinner table -- no talk of "fart" or "poop" or "pee" -- and so the kid was mighty pleased with himself when he started chanting at dinner Wednesday night, "Art and oop and ee! Art and oop and ee!" I had to give him credit.

(I remember in high school coming across the word "fart" in one of the Canterbury Tales -- a young married woman had agreed to kiss an old man from her window as long as he closed his eyes. When he arrived, she stuck her ass out and farted in his face. I thought I remembered Brueghel depicting it, but The Fight Between Carnival and Lent, 1559, is always welcome.)
