The meaning behind ‘I pooted’

Ipootedbillboard As we’ve sometimes admitted, we at AdFreak don’t get out much. But this Fourth of July weekend, in an odyssey that took us from New York to Cape Cod to northern New Hampshire, we kept spotting these “I pooted” billboards (thanks to Flickr user bigChill for the picture). Of course, the billboards emitted the appropriate Pavlovian response: that the phrase must be Googled upon returning to home base. Our research now clearly demonstrates that the billboard is a teaser for a TV commercial for the Cartoon Network, which bought the keyword. (Oh, and as for what “I pooted” means, it’s toddler-ese for “I farted.”)
