OK, so we all know about curries and the like.

I've just had some spiced butternut squash and turnip soup for lunch and I'm expecting it to be an aromatic afternoon in the office.

Sprouts have the desired effect as do onions.

My ex father in law used to make this legendary pea soup with chick peas and chopped up ham. It was lovely, very thick and starchy, with flavoursome bits of ham every so often.

...then it hit you like an express train. I cannot think of any other foodstuff that has such a profound effect on farting, it was quite embarassing at times.

He did eventually pre cook and drain the chick peas to remove some of the starch and fibre etc but it was still pretty bad.

It used to wake me up in the night. Horrid stuff.

yes everything else pales into insignificance when compared to the effect of Jerusalem artichoke soup.

I made "that" soup, too, Greg. The wife's all but banned it. hehe

All my most God-awful guffs have been after curry to he honest. There's something about the mix of spices, onions, ghee and meat that delivers the most remarkable quality and quantity.

Absolute shockers. Real oh my sweet lord I think I'm going to die shockers.

The kind that the dog looks at you with disgust after.

Curley Kale. Had a load last night with my lamb scotchpot, god lordy lord, i was actually concerned the heat of the gas might have in some way damaged my recaro seats... I had to check!!!

No seriously, i was pumping out gas, comparable to that of the recent volcanic erruptions.

I love curley Kale though!

That's the problem like there. Lots of great tasting food has the capacity to make your drop your guts in the most devilish fashion.

Flavoured crisps. Especially Pringles.

Maybe it's the monosodium glutamate that is the causal ingredient?

Never been associated with flatulence. And there's absolutely no scientific evidence that it dehydrates you, gives you headache and food poisoning either: most of Asia would be continually ill if that were the case.

Maybe there's monosodomy flatulate in there or something...
