Confession of a Windtalker

Confession of a Windtalker

The following conversation took place after my announcement of a personal matter to my friends.

L: so no body in the club knows about it including R???!!!

G: Actually... R knew ;) As a matter of fact, I talked about it in the club, but in coded messages. R broke the code. ;)

L: oooh ic before i joined the club right :) you can be the "007" too :)

R: I suspect that G might be part Navajo as he is a master 'code-talker.

G: R, if I were a Wind Talker, and you broke my code, what does that make you? ;)

R: Why, someone who enjoys breaking wind of course!

G: "Better out than in, I always say." -- Shrek
So it seems that it goes both ways.

R: Life's a gas!

Here are the references used in the above conversation:

According to Wikipedia:

Code talkers was a term used to describe people who talk using a coded language. It is frequently used to describe Native Americans who served in the United States Marine Corps whose primary job was the transmission of secret tactical messages. Code talkers transmitted these messages over military telephone or radio communications nets using formal or informally developed codes built upon their native languages. Their service was very valuable because it enhanced the communications security of vital front line operations during World War II.

The name code talkers is strongly associated with bilingual Navajo speakers specially recruited during World War II by the Marines to serve in their standard communications units in the Pacific Theater. Code talking, however, was pioneered by Choctaw Indians serving in the U.S. Army during World War I. These soldiers are referred to as Choctaw Code Talkers.
Other Native American code talkers were used by the United States Army during World War II, using Cherokee, Choctaw, Lakota[1] Meskwaki, and Comanche soldiers. Soldiers of Basque ancestry were used for code talking by the US Marines during World War II in areas where other Basque speakers were not expected to be operating.

Windtalkers is a 2002 action war film directed by John Woo. Nicolas Cage and Christian Slater star as two US Marine sergeants assigned to protect Navajo code talkers in Saipan during World War II.

Flatulence is the expulsion through the rectum of a mixture of gases that are byproducts of the digestion process of mammals and other animals. The mixture of gases is known as flatus, (informally) fart, or simply gas, and is expelled from the rectum in a process colloquially referred to as "passing gas", "breaking wind" or "farting". Flatus is brought to the rectum by the same peristaltic process which causes feces to descend from the large intestine. The noises commonly associated with flatulence are caused by the vibration of the anal sphincter, and occasionally by the closed buttocks.
