Fart noises disrupt Snooker Masters Finals: "Not very funny at all"

YouTube pranksters are taking credit for interrupting the Snookers Masters Finals with loud farting noises. The group, Trollstation, claims it wasn't a whoopee cushion making the sounds of flatulence but a "fart box" they planted in the arena earlier in the week.

The Guardian:

Stuart Bingham won the Masters 10-8 but one of the biggest days in the snooker calendar was briefly disrupted by an electronic “whoopee cushion” in the crowd...

...the perpetrator, who was quickly removed from the venue – but not before a number of fart noises had caused much mirth inside Alexandra Palace.

"I think it could be someone with a whoopee cushion," Dennis Taylor said on the BBC’s commentary. “Not very funny at all.”

Tesla adds farting mode and other Easter eggs in latest firmware update

Teslas now have built-in "whoopie cushions" thanks to a new firmware update. The vehicles can now make farting noises on demand or by use of a turn signal with what they're cheekily calling, "Emissions Testing Mode." Jalopnik reports there are seven flatulence sounds to choose from -- "Not a Fart, Short Shorts Rapper, Falcon Heavy, Ludicrous Fart, Neurastink, Boring Fart, and what seems to be a fart randomizer."

There are two other bizarre Easter eggs in this update: Romance Mode and Pole Position. The former provides a virtual fireplace and the latter is a retro-modern version of the old school racing video game.
