Fart Proudly: Writings of Benjamin Franklin You Never Read in School

There is a side to Benjamin Franklin we were not exposed to in school -- for better or worse, depending upon the degree of your prudery. There was a bawdy, scurrilous dimension to Franklin's character that was all too eager to ignite the flames of controversy -- and keep them burning. Fart Proudly is a testament to the satirical rogue that lived peaceably inside the philosopher and statesman. It is also a tribute to the ideal of a free press in the United States. These are marvelous writings -- pieces you will find yourself reading aloud to anyone who happens to be within 50 yards of you. They are witty, funny, and often scandalous, penned by one of the greatest Americans to live during the exciting times of the birth of this nation.
