At least according to my calculations.

I am using the equation

W = 1/(k-1) * (P2V2 - P1V1)

I am given P1 and P2 along with a temp, and the gas is an ideal one so

P1V1 = P2V2 and this I get 0 work to compress a gas which makes no sense.

Maybe KK can help me with this one.

You forgot to divide by zero.

I can magically compress gas between my ass cheeks, producing a high pitched sound.

Did you know that farting makes your butt cheeks cold(at least in theory)?

Well the gas is at a high pressure if your bum, and when it comes out it expands and thus is reduced to a lower pressure. This expansions takes heat, which is drawn from your butt cheeks which makes them colder.
