We received a postcard, in French, from the Mirth in a Box researcher team who went to Marseilles to verify the existence of Le Petomane. With a bit of help from a French dictionary we think it says the following:
Dear Gay, Jill and Anne,
Greetings from Marseilles aka France’s Windy City!
Le Petomane was a real person and his progeny are alive and well. Seems his “forte” was passed on (no pun intended) to is grandson who runs this “hotel” we are staying in. The walls are paper-thin.
We’ve had a gas but are ready to come home.
Mirth in a Box actually has a web site that sells funny and unusual gift boxes including one called “Stinking of You” which features the Remote Controlled Fart Machine #2″. If you are a fan of Le Petomane and this tyoe of low brow humor appeals to you, please check us out at www.MirthinaBox.com. We also have lots of things for your high brow friends.
