Trivia Question from Yesterday

In Blazing Saddles, Mel Brooks appears as Governor William J. Le Petomane, paying homage to the French perfomer, Le Pétomane. By what name was Le Petomane known off-stage (what is his 'real' name)?

      Joseph Pujol                                                      Source

Le Pétomane was the stage name of the French flatulist (professional farter) and entertainer Joseph Pujol (June 1, 1857 - 1945). He was famous for his remarkable control of the abdominal muscles, which enabled him to seemingly fart at will. His stage name combines the French verb péter, "to fart" with the -mane, "-maniac" suffix, which translates to "fartomaniac". The profession is also referred to as "flatulist", "farteur", or "fartiste".

It is a common misconception that Joseph Pujol actually passed intestinal gas as part of his stage performance. Rather, Pujol was able to "inhale" or move air into his rectum and then control the release of that air with his anal sphincter muscles. Evidence of his ability to control those muscles was seen in the early accounts of demonstrations of his abilities to fellow soldiers.

Le Petomane is also referenced in Blazing Saddles, a 1974 satirical Western comedy film directed by Mel Brooks. Brooks appears in multiple supporting roles, including the dim-witted Governor William J. Le Petomane, whose name suggests he is full of hot air.        Source

Alan J was first, and correct, with:

  His 'hole' act was passing gas. He was a "Fartiste! ...a "Flatulist!" ...a "farteur"!

  Le Petomane could play an ocarina

  with his butthole (you might want to wash your hands, I'm just sayin...)
  and blow out candles from a distance of several meters.

  Either of which would make him a superhero to any average 9-year-old boy.

  Joseph Pujol - Le Petomane...

  entertaining throngs, including Kings and dignitaries...

Marian replied:
   Joseph Pujol

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Joseph Pujol

Ken answered:

Deborah said:
   His real name was Joseph Pujol. He was a professional farter with a very talented sphincter. I guess he made the best of a very unique situation.

   Joseph Pujol, the French flatulent fartomaniac. Much more composed than Mr. Methane. When me and the boys were in our early teens we had "Boofa (Portuguese for Passing gas)" Flaming Asshole Contests. It was hot fun! Tis is proof that men cry and women fart! I love to fart and so does my lady too; even though she "never" farted until she met me. Her farts make me cry.

George responded:
   Marty, I had to check to make sure, but the real name of Le Petomaine was Joseph Pujol, alias "The Farter of Moulin Rouge".

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

Bob Barker's Epic Ocean Chase

Sea Shepherd

It's been more than three weeks since the environmental group Sea Shepherd started chasing a blacklisted vessel illegally fishing in the Southern Ocean.

One thousand nautical miles later, Sea Shepherd's Bob Barker is still in hot pursuit.

Captain Peter Hammarstedt and the crew aboard the 788-ton Bob Barker spotted the Nigerian-flagged boat, Thunder, illegally fishing in an area regulated by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). The international watchdog had put the Thunder on its blacklist of fishing operators.

When it ran from Sea Shepherd, the Thunder left reportedly left behind about 27 miles of gillnets in the water, which the crew of the Bob Barker's sister ship, Sam Simon, spent weeks hauling in. Sam Simon skipper Sid Chakravarty said the nets were found stuffed with than 700 dead toothfish.

CCAMLR in 2004 outlawed the use of gill nets in the Southern Ocean where the Thunder was fishing.

'It's a Private Matter'

Steve Kroft

CBS News gave a brief response to longtime "60 Minutes" correspondent Steve Kroft's admission to an extramarital affair on Thursday.

"It's a private matter," a spokesperson told TheWrap. Kroft, who's been with CBS News for 34 years, admitted to cheating on his wife in a statement Wednesday.

"I had an extramarital affair that was a serious lapse of personal judgment and extremely hurtful to my wife and family, and for that I have nothing but regret," Kroft told the New York Post. "My wife and I are committed to each other and are working hard to get past this, and consider it a private matter."

The 69-year-old correspondent is married to Jennet Conant - they have one son together.

Far From Being Private

Browsing Habits

Most modern browsers come with special private modes meant to help users hide their surfing habits from coworkers or family and/or try to prevent sites from tracking their online activity. That doesn't mean spy agencies or ISPs won't be able to see what sites users access - that's not what private browsing does, as Eric Schmidt has recently learned - but that, in theory, users might guard their privacy to some extent. However, as Business Insider reveals, private browsing isn't exactly as private as you thought it was.

It looks like some sites are still able to track users even if their customers opt to visit them in private/incognito modes, as one researcher has discovered.

While private modes prevent sites from saving cookies on a machine, the bits of information that allow sites to track users and offer various features based on their preferences, some "super cookies" have been discovered that can be used to track activity even in private mode, without the user knowing what's going on.

Apparently, a security-related browser feature called "HTTP Strict Transport Security" or HSTS, tells a website that it has to always be accessed using a secure, encrypted connection, no matter whether the user is browsing in regular or private mode.

Because HSTS info is always constant, websites can use the feature to add tracking numbers to HSTS information, and thus track users.

'My Happiness'

Elvis Presley

An acetate recording of the ballad "My Happiness," the first song Elvis Presley ever recorded, sold at auction Thursday night for $300,000.

An undisclosed Internet buyer placed the winning bid at Graceland, the museum and tourist attraction that was Presley's former home. The auction was held on what would have been the late singer's 80th birthday.

The 78 rpm record, with its tattered yellow label, sold for $240,000. But the total buyer's price includes a premium of 25 percent, or $60,000, that goes to the auction house, Graceland Auctions. Bidding for the record started at $50,000.

Other items in the auction included scarves worn by Presley at concerts, gold necklaces with the initials TCB (short for the slogan "Taking Care of Business"), prescription sunglasses made for Presley, and his first driver's license.

Wake-up Call


Arfing Idiot

Kirby Delauter

A Maryland politician's threat to sue a newspaper if it printed his name has backfired, with the dispute and the politician's name now splashed across the Internet and social media.

Angered by a news story, Kirby Delauter, a Republican member of the Frederick County Council, said in a posting on Facebook on Saturday that he would sue the Frederick News-Post if it used his name in any way without permission.

Delauter was responding to a story on Saturday about a flap with the county executive over council parking spaces and office keys.

The newspaper in Frederick, about 40 miles (64 km) northwest of Washington, responded with a story on Tuesday about the threat and an editorial titled "Kirby Delauter, Kirby Delauter, Kirby Delauter."

The editorial cited the U.S. Constitution's First Amendment guarantee of press freedom and used Delauter's full name 25 times. In an acrostic, the first letter of each paragraph spelled out Delauter's name.

Recommends Charges


The FBI and US Justice Department prosecutors have recommended bringing felony charges against retired General David Petraeus for allegedly providing classified information to his former mistress while he was director of the CIA, The New York Times reported Friday.

The investigation stems from an affair Petraeus -- who was also commander of American forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan -- had with an Army Reserve officer who was writing his biography, the newspaper said, citing unnamed officials.

The probe focuses on whether Petraeus, who resigned in 2012 when the affair became public, gave Paula Broadwell access to his CIA email account and other highly classified information.

FBI agents discovered classified documents on her computer after he quit, according to the Times, which said that Attorney General Eric Holder must decide whether to seek an indictment that could send Petraeus to prison.

Petraeus has said he never provided classified information to Broadwell, who was 20 years his junior and wrote a biography of the general before becoming his lover.



Men smoke opium from traditional pipes made out of bamboo at a hunting base camp in an opium field during a hunting trip between Donhe and Lahe township in the Naga Self-Administered Zone in northwest Myanmar December 27, 2014. The opium is harvested from poppy fields cultivated nearby and is mostly kept for local consumption, while some is traded for goods such as clothing or household items. Women do not smoke opium, but most men in the area do. On Myanmar's mountainous frontier with India live the Naga, a group of tribes historically known as warriors who kept the heads of enemies they killed. In Myanmar, around 120,000 people live in the Naga Self-Administered Zone in Sagaing Division where they survive mainly by subsistence farming and hunting. Cultural practices are changing - for example, younger men now wear trousers rather than traditional loincloths - although many Naga communities remain impoverished and inaccessible by road. The Naga speak dozens of languages and many of those in Myanmar use Burmese as a lingua franca.

Fed Pays Record In Profits

US Treasury

The Federal Reserve on Friday said it had paid a record $98.7 billion in profits to the Treasury in 2014, most of it earned from its stimulus for the US economy.

Under Fed policy, its 12 regional banks must pay to the federal government what is left of earnings after certain items, such as operating expenses and dividend payments, are deducted.

Last year's payment widely eclipsed the central bank's previous record of $88.4 billion in 2012.

The Federal Reserve banking system had net income of roughly $101.5 billion in 2014, according to preliminary estimates, the Fed said.

California Ends Ban

Foie Gras

As chefs in California hurried to stock their kitchens with newly legal foie gras, animal rights activists on Thursday protested a federal judge's decision overturning the state's two-year ban on sales of the fatty liver of ducks and geese.

Chefs said they were scrambling to line up shipments from outside California while activists picketed restaurants in Los Angeles and San Francisco that planned to serve the French delicacy prized for its creamy texture and rich taste.

California outlawed foie gras sales and production in 2004, but the ban did not take effect until 2012. Proponents of the ban say forced feeding of ducks and geese to enlarge their livers amounts to animal cruelty.

A U.S. District Court judge in Los Angeles ruled on Wednesday that California's ban ran afoul of a federal law regulating poultry products. The ruling only applied to the sale of foie gras. Production continues to be banned.

You have reached the Home page of BartCop Entertainment.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
