Fish don't fart, I know because i've watched them and have never seen tiny airbubbles coming from their hindquarters. Humans have to fart or we'd blow up.....boom!!

Do you have scientific evidence that if we don't fart we'll blow up?

Check Corydoras, who breathe in through their mouths, and exhale out the other end.
I don't think they can light them though.

Keep watching, Buddy.

This is kind of gross... There are arguments for both sides. The reasons humans fart is because we can't digest cellulose(from plants) so we need bacteria to break it down for us. They produce methane, a flammable gas that farts consist of. If we didn't fart, the bacteria would die because it is toxic to them. So we would get very constipated and backed up from excess cellulose and methane. We probably wouldn't explod, though. Fish have longer appendixes and different bacteria, and so don't fart(at least not as we think of it).

Are you kidding? Joking. Don't be so serious.

Hey, it's fishlore's fault I became such a science nerd and now want to be an ichthyologist(freshwater marine biologist).

Herrings somewhat do, they communicate through expelling air with from their air bladder through and opening (well you know where). These are called Fast Repetitive Ticks, or FRT.

There are a lot of humans that do the same thing. They're called politicians.
