    I'm not talking about farting here. What is the weirdest sound that's ever organically come from your body - did you ever hear a bone break or hear something collapse or pop? Let's try and keep it PG, as I realize this could go to a bad place.

    I ask because my cartilage pops in my ribs right now when our baby moves a lot. It sounds like a knee popping or someone clipping their fingernails. It's bizarre.

    I can snap my big toe and the one next to it and make loud noises. I often play drums, to other people's annoyance.

    My knees crack pretty loudly, it's something where I will just absentmindedly bend my leg and do it, I get some pretty strange looks from people who don't know me well enough to realize it's normal for me.

    I severely sprained my ankle playing basketball in high school and I will never forget the popping sound it made.

    Also, I have a shoulder that makes a noise that I can best describe as a scraping sound when I rotate it. Probably should get that checked out...

    My sneezes are really really loud compared to other people. They also pretty much can't be stifled.

    I shattered my elbow in the 8th grade, and ever since I can extend that arm and my elbow makes a lot of weird popping and cracking noises. My family thinks it's gross, other than my 6 year old - she always says "Dad, make your elbow noises"!

    My toes are double-jointed (as much as that's actually a real thing), so I can thump them audibly on the floor, my child, pretty much anything. I forgot how much that freaks people out.

    Snapped my forearm clear in half after a 15' fall onto hardwood floors. I still remember the sound of those two bones snapping, followed immediately by a resounding thud and all the air leaving my lungs.

    My sister ran to tell my parents that I fell; they thought the sound was the wind (through open windows) slamming a door in the house.

    That sucked.

    Mine sounds like twisting a stalk of celery when I move it in the morning sometimes.

    One thing weird I do is a can't sneeze without coughing at the same. I've only ever sneezed only a few times.

    My dentist says I have mild tmj. Basically when I open up larger than a regular loaf bread sandwich there is a grinding popping sound. My wife says its loud and she hates it.

    When I walk up stairs, my knees sound link firecrackers. When my wife is laying down,after eating, her stomach sounds like a rumbling volcanoe.

    Lost all the fluid in my achilles from too much basketball, used to make a creaking sound when I walked for the month it took to heal.. The feeling was weirder.

    Mine just like shake a room, everyone always thinks I'm faking because I'm by no means much above average in size.

    I've been described by friends as the "crackiest person alive." I can crack almost every bone in my body, right down to my pinky toe.

    I know the feeling. My wife accuses me of exaggerating my sneezes all the time!
