    Dear Caitlin,
    As everybody knows, people fart.
    But what about dead people?
    Can they release intestinal noisy gas from the anus?
    Foul-smelling farts are quite common among the living.
    Do they smell the same way or even worse, when it comes to cadavers?
    Please enlighten me.
    Best regards

      Yep, sometimes corpses fart. However, I never heard one tell me to pull their finger.
