An informal competition, usually between family members or close friends, commonly following a large, hearty meal. The object of the competition is to produce the most musical and, more importantly, the most fragrantly-foul and offensive expulsions of intestinal gas known to the farting free world. A true stink-off can render the premises virtually uninhabitable for many hours after the competition. Furniture can become flammable and the methane content in the air can sometimes reach the lower explosive limit. For this reason, stink-offs should always be held with extreme caution, cigarette smoking should be discouraged, and the premises should always be well-ventilated.
I stopped by Linda and Connie's house after they returned from the International Kimchi and Korean BBQ Festival. The place stunk so badly I could barely catch my breath. You could literally cut the air with a knife. Linda and Connie must have been in the middle of a real stink-off!!
