Often confused with a furtive glance the fartive glance is one of a more guilty standpoint. After one "cuts the cheese" in a public space, there is often a look on the face of the cheese cutter of embarrassment, as they look around to make sure no one heard/ smelt the passing of gas. The fartive glance can also be a glance of pride, if the cheese cutter is particularly pleased with how he or she cut his or her piece of cheese.

As the dean of the school was presenting his power point, an enormous fart cut him off mid sentence. Everyone looked around the room and immediately noticed the fartive glance on Bob's face.
