The endless appeal of the feeble South African joke

I've been looking at some of my traffic stats, and am astonished that a post about feeble South African jokes of the sixties and seventies is Salmagundi's fourth-most-viewed page. They are not even good jokes, and I can't believe you think they're worth reading. Do you have no taste, dear reader?

All I can say is this:

There was a young man from Umtata
Who was an incredible farter
He could fart anything
From God Save the King
To Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata.

Yes, I know it rips off an older song, but I reckon this version is best because, face it, how many words - apart from Carter, which doesn't count - rhyme with farter?
