London, Mar 12 (ANI): The "funniest" whoopee cushion sound is long and high-pitched, claims an academic after a two week scientific experiment into what makes farting funny.
After more than 30,000 people voted in a website poll, Professor Trevor Cox at the University of Salford said that the rasping raspberry sound lasts about seven seconds and was produced from a "normal-sized" whoopee cushion.
Sound samples were placed on soundsfunny.org for participants to listen and vote on.
"There hasn't been a lot of research into whoopee-cushion acoustics in the past," The Scotsman quoted the professor of acoustic engineering, as saying.
"We found the longer the whoopee cushion sound, the funnier it was," the expert added. (ANI)
