The Smelliest Fart in History

Here’s a reader submission first heard in Rowland Heights, CA in 1981. Sung to the tune of “Snoopy vs the Red Baron” by the Royal Guardsmen:

10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or more
(name here) cut a fart in the grocery store
80 men died when they tried to flee
the smelliest fart in history.

I love this one! Did you know one like it?

    My babysitter in the mid 70's, Cleveland Ohio taught me this, it was supposed to be about her brother
    10 20 30 40 50 and more
    Marty (her brother) blew a fartie in the grocery store
    Old man Don (their dad) tried to hold his breath
    Marty blew another and killed the rest.

    10 20 30 40 50 or more
    (——-) let a big one and blew us out the door
    the seats are in tatters, the engine fell apart,
    all because of (—–) and his supersonic farts!

    (Heard in northern california in the late 70s)

    How about this odorous little diddy?

    Artie Marty threw a party and all the farts where there

    Inky Pinky blew a stinky and they all ran out for air!

    I remember variants of this from the early to mid 1970s. The most common was “10 20 30 40 50 or more, (name) cut a fart in the Liquor Store”, but I don’t remember the rest of it. A variant I started was “10 20 30 40 50 or more, they’re selling fried farts at the Liquor Store.”

    Found this site in the attempt to remember how the original went.

    10 20 30 40 50 or more
    Someone cut a fart in the grocery store
    80 men died trying to hold their breath
    Then he cut another one and killed off all the rest

    Here’s the version I learned as a child in the late ’70’s.

    Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more,
    (Insert name) let a biggun in the grocery store.
    Killed ten men holding their breath.
    Let another biggun and killed the rest.
