You've probably done some really nasty burps in your life, without winning a prize for them. But Tim Janus won the first annual World Burping Championship in New York last Friday with his 18.1-second burp, and the WBF claims he's set a new world record.



Janus drank about 2 gallons of Diet Coke and Mountain Dew to take his place in burping history. "I was just trying to condense all the air in my stomach and bring it to the surface," he told DNAInfo. "You just have to force every last bit of air up. It's beautiful, really."

The World Burping Federation aims to promote "belching best practices" while "also seeking to remove the stigma that has become associated with belching in recent centuries." In the spirit of their mission, how long can you burp for?

    I cannot burp! I don't know why, no one else has ever heard of it. But I certainly am great when it comes to the other end!

    I think I've done close to 3 or 4 before, maybe approaching 5 seconds, but that might be pushing it. And it really depends on what I ate/drank and who's around. Would I ever practice doing it that long or do it for prestige? Not bloody likely.

    Kind of a funky contest isn't it?

    The World Burping Federation aims to promote "belching best practices" while "also seeking to remove the stigma that has become associated with belching in recent centuries."

    What next, a World Farting Federation that aims to promote "farting best practices"?

    How long can you fart for?

    I can't, period. I'm probably the only person in the world that DOESN'T burp. On command or otherwise.
