Toilet randomly burps and smells like sewer...

Sometimes I will be sitting in the living room and I hear a burping noise like large air bubbles coming up through water. I have seen it in the toilet. It doesn't happen during or after flushing, it seems completely random. This morning I was brushing my teeth when it happened and I nearly gagged because it smells slightly of sewer. This is annoying and grossing me out...any ideas????

Sounds like a missing, improperly installed, or clogged vent pipe and sewer gas is blowing back in.
