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.”

Criminal's farts turn interrogation room into a gas chamber

Sean A. Sykes Jr. pleaded guilty this week to having possessed marijuana, heroin and cocaine with the intent to sell and of using a firearm in furtherance of a drug crime. It's a win for the Kansas City district attorney who, in 2017, charged 25-year-old Sykes with possession of drugs with intent to sell and of being a felon in possession of three firearms. Did I mention that two of the three guns were stolen? I think it's safe to say that Sykes is enthusiastic about his career.

Anyway, on to the good stuff.

Last year, when Sykes was being questioned by the cops for these crimes, his gas, presumably due to his nerves being shot after being arrested, was so bad that the investigating officer was forced to evacuate the interrogation room for fear of being overwhelmed by farts.

From the Kansas City Star:

On Sept. 1, Sykes was in a car that police searched and found a backpack that contained various drugs and two handguns. One of the guns, a .357 Magnum, had been reported stolen out of a car in Independence a few days earlier, according to the documents.

In his report about the interview, the detective wrote that when asked about his address, “Mr. Sykes leaned to one side of his chair and released a loud fart before answering with the address.”

“Mr. Sykes continued to be flatulent and I ended the interview,” the detective wrote.

Charges were not filed at that time.

Then on Nov.

The medical world has discovered Liquid Ass

Pew! Liquid Ass prank spray will make a room smell like farts, really foul smelling ones. According to people who have bought and used it, it's strong and it will make you gag. But it also has another use, a more noble one:

Researchers, hospitals, and programs designed to train medical professionals routinely order Liquid Ass. The stench so realistically mimics the human colon, it’s the perfect training tool to teach medical responders how to maintain focus and professional demeanor in the midst of a truly overwhelming smell. And because the stench is universally offensive, psychologists have found it’s the perfect tool for studying the effects of disgust on all sorts of human behavior, from political decision-making to health care choices.

...Kata Conde, an assistant nursing professor at MidAmerica Nazarene University in Kansas, started buying Liquid Ass for the simulation lab she runs for her students. It’s the only product she’s found that accurately captures the smells that come from our bowels, and she would know: she had a 30-year career as a nurse before becoming an instructor. Conde now uses Liquid Ass in teaching scenarios in which a patient has soiled themselves while trying to get out of a hospital bed, complete with chocolate icing to set the scene. It’s also good for practicing bowel surgeries, like colostomies, where surgeons divert some of the large intestine to a new hole in the abdomen.

“The smell hits you like a huge wall,” she says. “It’s something people react to when they first experience it.

Oasis' Liam Gallagher grilled by school kids, calls his brother Noel 'naughty'

A room full of young children got the opportunity to ask former Oasis lead singer Liam Gallagher nearly anything they wanted.

They quizzed him with questions like, "What's your favorite Disney movie?" (Finding Nemo) and "What instruments do you play?"(none).

When one boy called him "naughty," Liam wasted no time bringing up his estranged brother Noel, calling him "naughty."

It just got more beautifully awkward from there when one rosy-cheeked boy asked the hard-hitting question on everyone's mind, "What's your favorite fart?" (loud ones). Gallagher's sage advice for the young'uns: "If you wanna be a rock star, look out the window, stare at the clouds and do loud farts."

Gallagher is currently on a worldwide tour for his hit solo album, As You Were.

Woman arrested for roughing up farting husband

Port St. Lucie, Florida police arrested Dawn Meikle after she allegedly attacked her husband, Donald Fitzroy Meikle, for farting too much in bed. When he broke wind, she apparently elbowed him and then kicked him out of their bed. After she allowed him to return, he again passed gas, spurring her to kick and hit him.

According to CBS12, Donald Fitzroy Meikle "said he held his wife for his own safety. During the struggle, she suffered a broken lip and he suffered a lot of scratches across his chest." Police stated she also sprayed pepper spray to, er, block him from getting to the bathroom? Read the rest

Man fired for farting too much?

Louann Clem of Trenton, New Jersey, is suing her and her husband Rich's former employee, Case Pork Roll Co., claiming that he was fired for farting too much. Both the Clems complained to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), but her case was dismissed so she decided to sue while her husband's EEOC complaint is pending. According to the suit, Rich Clem had gastric bypass surgery that led to “extreme gas and uncontrollable diarrhea.” That was when the owner of the company, Thomas Dolan, began harassing them, she says. Some of Dolan's alleged comments that Louiann Clem references in the lawsuit:

“We have to do something about Rich. This can’t go on.”

“Why is Rich having these side effects?”

“Is Rich following his doctor’s recommendations?”

“We can’t run an office and have visitors with the odor in the office.”

“Tell Rich that we are getting complaints from visitors who have problems with the odors.”

The company's owner claims the Clems weren't fired but rather quit after refusing to take a pay cut when the company fell on hard times.

"Nosefrida the Snotsucker" reminds us babies are gross

I have two kids, so like all parents, I've been through some gross moments. Still, the all-natural baby decongestant Nosefrida the snotsucker brings out the giggling 15 year old in me. The picture tells the story: mom holds baby down like a prisoner and with one end of the tube in her mouth (or in my family, Dad), and the chamber tip firmly pressed onto bambino's schnozz, and snot is sucked. "Of course" product devotees will tell you, "it doesn't go up the tube, it gets captured in the chamber!!" But still. But still. Read the rest
