Get your fart jokes ready.

Welsh villagers are “kicking up a stink” about a proposal to change the name of their village from Varteg to Farteg because they’re worried about the inevitable cracks about breaking wind, the Daily Mail reports.

Welsh language campaigners are petitioning to rename the village to properly reflect Wales’ ancient alphabet.

“Just imagine how embarrassing it will be to have the word ‘fart’ in your village’s name — never mind being followed by ‘egg,’” Sioned Jones, 42, told the newspaper.
