    Only if they take that money and buy them some Beano.

    Very fair. We have something similar in our house. Hubby and my boys have to do a chore anytime they pass gas within 6 feet of me and I smell it. So long as I don't smell it I don't care, but living in a house with 3 males if I don't rstrict it in some way I would never know what fresh air smelled like. Now it's a game of get 6 feet one inch away from mom and pass gas then laugh because it was more than 6 feet.

      Peeples. Just who does the cooking in your home? Do you make a lot of Mexican? I think you're setting them up so they have to do all the housework. I bet you eat somewhere else. Pretty slick if you ask me.

    Yes. But when you go to bed tonite, he throws a $5 bill on the dresser and pulls the cover over your head, you are in deep trouble!

    Is it a game ? Otherwise it seems crazy. Do you have to pay if you cough or blow your nose as well ?

    Wow, I hope you are kidding because that just seems bizarre for something that is usually out of one's control.

    That is funny! lol.. I mean, that can happen to you (or who so ever you are talking about) as well. That's completely natural, out of control! I mean what other option do you have if you have gas build up in your stomach, other than releasing it?! But if it bothers you too much then you can simply tell your spouse to go out of the room or house and then fart and come back!

    25 cents is too cheap. It should be a least a buck!

    I told my mother about this question. She replied, "how could you keep up?" My parents always have a supply of Beano. At the house, I don't really have a problem with this issue so it doesn't exactly seem like a good idea.

    What a wonderful idea.  If I'd thought of it 30 odd years ago, I'd be a millionaire by now.  25 cents for a feminine type fart; 50 cents for a smelly one and $1.00 for a lethal silent smelly.

    Oh my gosh. I live with an old man who still thinks farting is the height of hilarity! I'd be a millionaire!

    25 cents!  I'm getting ripped off.  I have to pay the same amount as the tooth fairy leaves.  Where else would the tooth fairy get the money?-

    If it is a big giant stinky fart it's at least worth $1.00.
