Greasy Meat Farts

You know the kind - foul, hot odor ensconsed in a kind of yellowish, oozing viscosity. The kind of gas you have to go outside to pass, and then stay there a minute not to drag it back in with you.

My friend JB has to keep an extra pair of underwear in his desk at work due to this. That, and he has to constantly run down to the bathroom to "dry wipe" after a particularly nasty episode.

Common causes are meat and beer in massive, nearly steady rates of consumption. After a time, there is no cure.
