THE SHART HALL OF FAME
As a part of Shart Week, we’re recognizing some of the all time great sharters by immortalizing them in our Shart Hall of Fame.
Our next inductee is also our biggest, and he certainly makes a giant-sized imprint on shart history. Yes, today we raise our door frames and reinforce the stage to induct the all-time legend ANDRE THE GIANT.
Stories of Mr. Giant’s feats of strength, eating, drinking, and yes, sharting, are legendary. They’ve taken on mythic qualities, from how many 12 fluid-ounce beers he consumed in one sitting (stories range anywhere from 117 to 156) to how much he could lift (stories range from a car, to a car full of local idiots who tried to fight a guy name “Giant”).
These stories alone could be enough to gain Mr. Giant into any Hall of Fame (he was inducted into WWE’s Hall in 1993), but there’s one in particular that clinches his place in ours.
Shortly before his death in 1993, Mr. Giant was involved in a 6-man tag match in Mexico City. Mr. Giant, who had felt sick all day, was in the ring with Bad News Brown (coincidentally, a pretty solid nickname for the incident). He tossed Bad News into the corner and followed it up with a big back splash; at that moment, sickness overtook him, and unleashed worse news on Bad News in the form of a Giant-sized Shart.
Now, the video attached is not that incident… but it does give one the sense of what a human being would suffer if they were on the wrong end of a Hall of Fame-sized shart attack.
Welcome, Mr. Giant, make yourself comfortable. While you sit on your king-size throne (not that kind) and reminisce with the other greats, we hope any rumbling in your stomach from a you-sized feast reminds you of one thing—
Treat every fart, like it’s Shart Week.
