Brain fart has a whole new meaning when you find out your butt has a brain too!

That “gut feeling” is actually your gut “thinking” according to scientists in Australia.

Apparently, the study published in JNeurosci says the human body has a “second brain” in the rear end, and it may be smarter than you think.

It says the gastrointestinal tract contains millions of neurons, which independently control muscle movement in the colon.

Prof. Nick Spencer from Flinders University in Australia says in a press release, “these findings identify a previously unknown pattern of neuronal activity in the peripheral nervous system,”

Researchers discovered that the neurons in the digestive system fire in synchronized blasts, which propel waste out of the body. This is the same way neurons in the brain fire as they send signals throughout the body.
