Eric: Wait. What the Hell does 'Fert' even mean?

(from For Better or For Worse. Click on the thumbnail for full sized ferting!)

Beyond the fact that we're having kind of a fun 'seniors aren't dead yet' sequence in For Better or For Worse, I think I should point out any time one of the more beloved of family friendly strips includes a clear reference to farting on the comics page. Because even substituting an E for the A doesn't change the fact that when a Fart becomes Old, he becomes an Old Fart.

Besides, kids need something to snicker about for twenty minutes.

Well, "fert" could just be a transliterated Canadian regional accent. Doesn't sound like any I've heard, but I'm hardly an expert on Canadian regional accents.
