You’ve probably seen Miriam Margolyes in something. She usually plays the whacky old lady, crazy aunt, witch. She was in one of the Harry Potter films. She’s a dreadful old lefty luvvy, but they all are, aren’t they?

Yesterday she was on Good Morning Britain. Seconds before the end of an ad break, she lifted a buttcheek, let rip an enormous fart and said, “that’s better.”

When the cameras rolled, the hosts were in tears.

Is this news? Is it important? Folks, I will never let a fart story go.

This is my pledge to you.

Someone ought to ask her if she purchases carbon credits to offset her malodorous contributions to gullible warming.

I wonder…does cow tipping count the same way carbon credits do?

Guess she got tired of waiting for somebody to pull her finger…

Brits put up with some awful people in the theater. It’s almost a license to offend. IMHO Margolyes is one of the worst. She dines out on stories of the theatrical world, but they are always laced with an acidic insult to societal norms. I suspect some of it is a pushback against anti-Semitism. Kenneth Willams was another, but he was far slyer than Margolyes. His interviews with Parkinson were hilarious.

Maybe we could have a competition between her and Slow Joe! Although he did drop a load when he met Bergoglio. I understand that is disqualifying in flatulating contests…

Is she a mezzo?
Mezzo-soprano roles are characterized as “witches, bitches and britches.” She makes 2 out of three.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
