Just to make sure we remain the gutter-obsessed sewer rats we are, it's time for some fart humor.

So yesterday, when asked about whether or not he was ready mentally to be a starting NFL quarterback again, the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger said the following quote: "The doctors said there's nothing wrong with my brain, but I'm having brain (cramps) out there. It's one of those things where you make mistakes and you learn from them."

Actually, that's not quite true: That's just what the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette quoted him as saying. But Roethlisberger, of course, did not speak in brackets: He said "brainfarts." And they bleeped him! Who bleeps "farts?" We've consulted our handy AP Stylebook, and there appears to be no concrete rule against using the word "fart."

That mainstream media! Always trying to censor the TRUTH, man!
