Rhapsode—Dogs fart. They pass gas.

A Street Dog—The formula ab means that the set a is a member of the set b (which is also read, “a is an element of b” or “a is in b“).

Mr President—Capturing flatus should not be taken lightly. In the section, ‘Collection and analysis of rectal gases,’ the researchers describe the outfit they rigged up to assess dog farts in real-time. The main component is a jacket that looks similar to something companion dogs might wear in the rain, although this jacket comes with a sulfur-detecting pump attached to the area near the dog’s anus. To complete the suit, dogs wear disposable paper underpants to “protect the sampling device from external interference and help maintain proximity of the tubing to the anus.”

A Street Dog—ZFC has a single primitive ontological notion, that of a hereditary well-founded set, and a single ontological assumption…

Mr President—The Odor Judge whiffed “each flatulence episode and rated the episode on a 1 to 5 scale, where 5 represented an unbearable odor and 1 was noise only with no odor. A rating of 2 represented a slightly noticeable odor, 3 was a mildly unpleasant odor, and 4 was a bad odor.”

Rhapsode—Whatever you call it, dog farts can be silent but deadly, they pop out of nowhere and can even be delivered in conjunction with a sneeze or a bark. In other words, dogs fart like us.

A Street Dog—…namely that all individuals in the universe of discourse are such sets.
