London, Feb 21 (ANI): A researcher is conducting tests to find the world's funniest flatulence noise - with the help of whoopee cushions!

Acoustics expert Professor Trevor Cox has set up a website where visitors hear six trumping noises and are asked to grade them.

Prof Cox, of Salford University, Manchester, has a long running interest in whoopee cushions and until recently held the record for having the largest one in the world, reports the Daily Express.

Cox was asked to set up the experiment by Comic Relief. They want thousands of ­people to cast votes ­before Red Nose Day on March 13.

Prof Cox, from Salford University, said: "The whoopee cushion has much in common with the human voice and how wind instruments work, so it is a memorable way of portraying some important science." (ANI)
