Can someone barely fart?
Rob, fart poles?
Barely should be used for a small amount or extent (barely won, barely slept). A fart is something that happens or not, like pregnancy. The amount isn't usually important but it's there so it sounds wrong but barely ;)
It sounds right however if you stress the importance of the amount of gas and PUT it in the foreground:
Hey, that barely even WAS a fart.
That does NOT work with pregnancy.
I don't fart, I whisper in my panties ;-)
Somehow, you made farting sound sexy:-)
At least you helped me make my point that this is a good question. Not only a contest winning good question...
GET THOSE THUMBS UP PEOPLE!
My ex-wife used the same terminology exactly. Hehe hadn't heard anyone else say that. She'd say she was gonna "whisper" and could blow the comforter off of the bed into the ceiling fan. Whisper my foot. :(
OK, Rob you win.
If it announces itself, even silently, it's a full-on fart.
Silent but deadly!!
It's a good one, isn't it?
Is $25 really worth it?
...numbers just fell off a cliff.
You may just squeak this one out...
It's not about the money for me.. I enjoy the competition. I know I'm not going to win, but the fun is in the trying. The title is awesome in itself though.
