Whoopi Goldberg is a loudmouth liberal actress who is known for her crazy opinions. Her name has become legendary in this country, but surprisingly enough it is not the name she was born with.

Whoopi was born Karen Johnson, and she was given the nickname Whoopi for a very strange reason: The name Whoopi was given to her because she farts a lot.

“I’m a farter,” she admits proudly in the clip above.

“If you get a little gassy, you’ve got to let it go,” she said in another interview. “So people used to say to me, ‘You’re like a whoopee cushion.’ And that’s where the name came from.”

I guess it’s not surprising that someone as gross and classless as Whoopi Goldberg would take their name from a bodily function…
