It's "frat" spelled sideways

Remember this chick?

I do.

Which is why I'm going to have to avoid discussing this at any length. I will, however, quote for you the original note in U.S. News by Paul Bedard:

Animal House in the West Wing

He loves to cuss, gets a jolly when a mountain biker wipes out trying to keep up with him, and now we're learning that the first frat boy loves flatulence jokes. A top insider let that slip when explaining why President Bush is paranoid around women, always worried about his behavior. But he's still a funny, earthy guy who, for example, can't get enough of fart jokes. He's also known to cut a few for laughs, especially when greeting new young aides, but forget about getting people to gas about that.

Beyond this, you'll just have to read the expanded version in Capitol Hill Blue. And if you want the flatulence jokes, try Margery Eagan's column in the Boston Herald.

And if you really, really can't get enough, try (cough, cough) Keith Olbermann, all 5:37 worth of video, including an interview with Mo Rocca. (I personally don't recommend the video, because it exceeds Code Red/Infantile on the Pillage Idiot Advisory System. There simply isn't a color for it.)
