My personal testimony shows TooT
TrappeR will get the job done . . . Foes and friends alike will appreciate
Something smelled fishy to me, too. Even after Id read a
press release. . . . So I ordered one, not because I have an overpowering need, mind you,
but as a public service of sorts. And since doing so, I have two things to proclaim about
the :TooT TrappeR."
One its no spoof.
And two, the dang thing really works. . . . vegetarians and
others on a high-fiber diet will create a lot of gas, too.
So will my wifes white bean & chicken chili, which I
wolfed down and then waited to see how it would fare in taking the whoopee out of the
I ate. I sat. I waited. It came. I sawed. And the TooT

>> The Flatulence Filter, a chair cushion air filter,
may rescue people from the embarrassment of passing gas around others. The cushion looks
like a regular chair cushion, but it instantly absorbs the odor of intestinal gas. It
contains an activated carbon air filter to absorb the odor. The air filter in the
Flatulence Filter is designed to absorb odors for at least six to 12 months. The
inventor of the devise is a man who was bothered by excessive intestinal gas related to
diabetes, and his wife suggested that he invent something .
|The Houston Post:
Inventor not one to toot own
Youre tempted to tell
inventor Frank Lathrop hes like a breath of fresh air.
Hes wonderfully humble about his many accomplishments, incredibly gracious as he
answers questions that reflect a frightening ignorance of science a man quite
unlike so many boorish self-promoters found in the business world.
But you refrain from the compliment as you sit in his office because hes so
honest about the genesis of the Flatulence Filter, a chair cushion he invented to
hide (dare we say) flatulence problems.
At first blush you think he might be just another tasteless, money-hungry
entrepreneur whos only trying to make a quick buck.
But thats not the case. . . .
Had he not come up with a way to absorb odor by disguising a carbon air filter as a
chair cushion, he says he would have lost several employees and done irreparable harm to

Beans, beans the musical fruit: Yes, flatulence can be a
pain if you work in an office with people close by. But a Texas inventor has come to the
rescue of folks afflicted with excessive gas. UltraTech Products Inc. of Houston is
marketing the "Flatulence Filter" . . . the attractive chair-cushion air
filter puts an end to those embarrassing moments when nature quietly or noisily
MA, Telegram & Gazette: James Dempsey
The mail brings me news of a
company selling a cushion that takes away the smell of intestinal gas. Naturally, I call
the company. I dont believe this is for real, I say.
Sure it is, they say. Well send you one. Which is how I
come to be the proud owner of a Flatulence Filter.
It is a nondescript gray cushion that is reportedly packed with
charcoal-impregnated foam. A kind of catalytic converter for your butt.
A SEAT CUSHION BY ANY OTHER NAME...
IT MAY NOT DO ANYTHING to help global warming, but it sure might
help cut down on noxious emissions in the office. Its the Flatulence Filter
made and sold since 1995 by Houston-based UltraTech Products.
. . . . scientists have independently
validated its effectiveness. A resent issue of Gut, a journal of gastroenterology, . . . .
noted that the cushion "effectively limits the escape of these sulfur-containing
gases into the environment."
Flatulence itself is completely natural. According to Michael D. Levitt, M.D., a
Minneapolis gastro-enterologist who is considered one of the worlds leading experts
on flatu-lence, everyone suffers bouts occasionally. In fact, his studies show that the
average person has 13.6 episodes a day.
Against The Wind: By Jean Callahan
Diet is the first thing to suspect. An aging digestive tract is another
cause of flatulence. Chronic flatulence can be a symptom of irritable bowel syndrome, food
allergies or other disorders. . .
If all else fails, Levitt suggests a chair cushion called the
Flatulence Filter that acts as a sort of reverse whoopee cushion. . . .
