Farts Dot Com

Update 7/10/2013 5:03PM EST: Within ten minutes of me tweeting this blog entry to NightFood's official twitterwww.farts.com stopped redirecting to NightFood's website.  NightFoodBar more like COWARDBAR.  ANSWER THE QUESTIONS, FARTBAR!

But don't worry, you can still see cached version on Google Cache: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:http://farts.com/ (just copy that into your web-browser) OR Archive.Org's way back machine. (Just type in www.farts.com and click "Take Me Back".  It's right there on June 30th 2013)


Thankfully - because we live in 2013 and everyone is already fully aware by now that my generation is a lost cause* - I am saved from having to write a transparent preamble where I try to give a face-saving explanation as to why I visited www.farts.com this morning.  Whatever.  I went to www.farts.com this morning, and now you should, too.

When you click the link to www.farts.com you will find that it immediately redirects to splash page for a cookies and cream flavoured dietary supplement specially designed for midnight-snacking called NightFood bars.  According to their website, these bars are a healthy late night snacking option that will improve the quality of your sleep.  The website answers questions on the product's origin, it's ingredients, has testimonials, and even offers free samples, but it leaves a lot of questions unanswered.

Question #1: Did you purchase www.farts.com to do this?
A quick look at fart-related URLs on the GoDaddy domain auction site and www.BuyDomains.com shows URLs such as StinkyFarts.com STARTING bidding at $20,000USD.

Did you pay 5 figures for www.farts.com?  Does the Stinky in StinkyFarts.com make it more desirable or less desirable?  I'm new to the world of fart-related web addresses and could use any and all information on the market that you are willing to share.
