Fartposting, Brapposting, or simply Brap, often extended with more 'A's as required (for example: "braaaaaaap"), is a slang term which refers to the sound produced by a fart, and consequently alludes to fart fetishists in the form of copypasta.


"Brap" is primarily used for shitposting and thread derailing on image boards such as 4chan.

A Reddit user posted to the subreddit r/OutOfTheLoop, looking for an explanation of the term.[1] Many comments responded explaining that the term referred to farting. One user replied with a possible origin from 4chan, stating:[2]

the actual answer is a few people who were into fart/scat fetishes started posting pictures of chicks with nice asses and stuff and then posting cringe tier erotica next to it about chicks farting and stuff.

People found it hilarious and started posting it all over the place and it just kind of took of as a meme. I think i saw it on /r9k/ before /fit/ though.,

Precursor: Brap as Euphemism for Farting

An early use of the term can be traced back to March 04, 2008 on Urban Dictionary, where the fifth-ranked submitted definition for "brap" reads thusly:[3]

The volume rating of a fart (Bp) governed by three variables;- rectal pressure®, buttock friction (f) and sprouts consumed (SpC). Buttock friction (f) can be reduced to zero by pulling the ringpiece open wide during emission.

"My word said the vicar, that anal exclamation was right off the brapometer"

However, it should be noted that there are other definitions ranked above this that do not coincide with either the memetic usage of "brap" as shitposting or with fart fetishism.


Usage of "brap" as a copypasta-style meme seems to have spread primarily in the mid 2010s, with regard to the aforementioned Reddit thread attempting to seek an understanding of the term's usage on 4chan. On November 16, 2016, a 4chan user gained mild notoriety on the video games board, /v/, with a post containing what appeared to be brap-themed roleplay.
