Can't Top That

I may as well drop out of my doctoral program. My younger brother has upstaged me. He has written his masters thesis, a feat for which he should be applauded. And I do applaud him. But what is even cooler, in my opinion, is the fact that he used the word 'fart' in his dissertation. Impressive, no? What makes it even more impressive is the fact that he goes to school at BYU. That is right, a dissertation at BYU using the word fart.

I know I can't make a claim like this without proof, so you can see the dissertation here. It's on page 12. *Edited to clarify* (Page 1 of the dissertation, but page 12 of the pdf document).

I must be blind; I can't see it. What sentence is it in? (I can't believe I care so much about seeing the word 'fart' in print.)

Sorry... It's on page 12 of the pdf document, which is actually page 1 of the dissertation. It is in the quote from Heber C. Kimball.
