Vurp, Churp, Thurp

After bellydancing class tonight, Abby, Jenny, Jo and I were standing around chatting when I had a puke-burp. You know, where you burp but get a little somethin extra with it. It's yucky but it happens to all of us. Especially after eating chicken-italian sausages. The funniest part was, we all had different names for it. Abby called it a THURP (for throw-up burp), Jo called it a VURP (vomit burp), and Jenny had the grossest version, a CHURP (chunk burp). Well, you learn something new everyday!

In that vein, I thought I'd do some internet research on burps. I hit gold immediately. What could be more informative than a site called It has wav files of various burps... lovely.

My second find was a site that had links to burp related pages. Seemed quite appropriate, BUT THEN... I realized that quite a few of the links were to very explicit sounding porn sites that got listed for referencing, among other things, "sperm burping"... gross!! And quite different from "chicken-italian-sausage burping". I honestly think you could do a search for ANY term at all and find links to porn. As a matter of fact, I think that would make a good research project or a good article for Just type in the most innocent words you can think of and see how many porn sites you get... "cute"... "cuddly"... "whiskers on kittens"... and the list goes on and on...

It just reinforces what those of us in the web industry all know. The internet is all about porn.
