Lately I've been fooling around with obscure 19th century engineering engravings to fashion modern technology to make our lives easier here in the 21st century. I am also searching for gullible venture capitalists.

Register your patents Hal! They're all winners! Howzabout a "Drawger Comment Enhancer"?

Dear ACME Complaint Dept. I recently purchased one of you ACME© Noiseless Flatulence Release System™ The NFRS 2000. While the product did work as described in the manual, it said nothing about the red mark it would leave on my rear end. Some discoloration might be expected in some cases, but this was more like capillaries popping. Please let me know if there is a way to adjust the settings and/or if this is perhaps defective and in need of replacement. - Thank you

Dear Mr. Goldin Although we have received few complaints about our Flatulence Release Product, your comfort is of the upmost importance to us. May we suggest a couple of drops of 3 in 1 oil. Happy off-gassing! Acme Product Support

These are cool, hal!

Dear ACME Complaint Dept., in regards to my previous grievance with my NFRS 2000, your recommendation worked however... I find the odor of 3-1 oil emitting from my rear is sometime less than desirable. While chatting with dinner guests about my situation a few helpful ideas were exchanged. After a few trial and error experiments I've found that spray PAM works best. You might want to add that to the owners manual. sincerely, Happy Customer

Holy cow, Hal, great series! I am patiently awaiting the arrival of the mind decramper. Don't these arrive by parachute immediately after ordering?

Dear Acme Product Support, you are welcome to use my testimonial in reference to your product. ACME is a brand that stands behind it's products, except the Noiseless Flatulence Release System™... I wouldn't stand behind that. Ha ha ha, y'know what I mean? sincerely, satisfied customer

Hal: ...I have nothing to say, and I don;t use this word often, but these are pretty damn close to genius. Excellent stuff and funny as hell. I ran out a bought my flatulence reducer immediately...and those who know me well...very well, are appreciative. Great work!

Hal, the engravings and the drawings work great together. As always your system delivers laughs and whimsey at satisfying rates.

I thought the Acme Noiseless Flatulence Release System was a new kind of Mayforth colonoscopy invention! Great,great stuff Hal.
Hal Mayforth March 24, 2007
Thanks for all the responses, folks. Presently I'm in negotiation with several airlines to include a smaller version the Acme Noiseless Flatulence Release system in those snack packages that include pepperoni on transcontinental flights. H.
