The Hall of Fame is where the immortals of baseball are enshrined forever. Basically, Cooperstown is the cathedral of baseball. So when Greg Maddux dropped a fart joke into his Hall of Fame induction speech, that was more-or-less the same as making a fart joke during mass at Notre Dame in Paris.

Maddux pulls the fart joke out while thanking his brother Mike, who was also a major league pitcher. “My brother Mike led by example. … He even taught me about science,” Maddux deadpans before the assembled baseball elite. “It had to do with a little methane and a lighter, and I still get a huge kick out of it today.”

Greg Maddux admitted in front of everyone that he still laughs at lighting farts. He probably also giggles when people say “butt.” If you want to see Greg Maddux really break up, just recite a dirty limerick.

It just proves, you don’t need a sophisticated sense of humor to be a Hall of Fame pitcher. You just need pinpoint location and a killer change up. Maddux had both of those. And he likes lighting farts.
