But

Farts are flammable and can light your underwear on fire. Can't have that on a flight. Better outlaw Gas-X. Oh, and please usher in a GI tract X-Ray machine to screen for this horrible gas.

I guess we know who drew the short straw...

...when they were divying up research projects.

Btw, it appears their study is flawed.

"The study also found ...that a woman’s fart smells worse than a man’s."

Must be a misprint I'm sure. :P

Eh...

That sounds like a bunch of hot air to me.

I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy
