It cracks me up every time you use the term "fart fan." Is that common lingo for your area or something you made up?
I am not certain where it came from, my take on the world around me ain't the same as most folk. It used to be ma and pops didn't like it or the rest of my redneck lingo as a kid, I had a lot of alone time in my room, picked up a lot of rocks on 75 acres and a few beatings over it, didn't fix much, seems I have too hard a head. They always had it figured that I would go farther in life if I were to speak better and conform a little more, ma did get over it for the most part, perhaps she gave up about the time my sister decided to go off to school to become a Chiropractor, pops quit worrying about me when I left home.
