1.
The folklore of flatulence.
Tom: Hey, man, did you know that if you hold up a match by your ass and fart, it'll make a huge fireball, with green smoke!

Dick: Nah, dude. That's fartlore. Besides, only 20% of people even have methane in their farts, which is the gas that makes it possible for farts to be flammable in the first place, silly! Now go make me a sandwich.

2.
An individual who studies folklore and/or folklife for a living.

Often identifiable by their peculiar clothing, meager incomes, and the ability to talk about how "everyday stuff" is actually pretty cool and meaningful in larger scheme of things. As a profession, you could say that they are the ultimate collectors and bearers of tradition.
Tom: Hey, Dick! That guy with the longish hair, tweed jacket, and neatly groomed facial hair told me that the Paul Bunyan tall tale was actually a fake!

Dick: You just now figured that out? That dude is a folklorist. He knows these things and is awesome because of it. Now go make me a sandwich.
