Farts are always going to be funny.
As far as I’m concerned, you will never be too old to giggle at the sound of passing gas.

What does P.U. stand for anyway?

I’ve always wondered why these two letters mean that something smells bad.  Apparently it’s a hot topic among linguistic experts.  In Latin, the term puteo literally means “to stink.”  So some hypothesize that P.U. is an abbreviation we’ve adopted.  Good to know.
