Ancient Japanese Drawings Depicting Men Farting

Yip, you read that right. These ancient images were produced during the Japanese Edo period (1603 – 1868). They show he-gassen, or “farting competition”. Farting on each other, women and animals, nothing is held back in the fart wars. Apparently similar drawings were used to ridicule westerners towards the end of the Edo period, with images depicting the westerners blown away by Japanese farts. The images all came from a scroll, which was scanned in and then cut up digitally.
