Plane Diverted Due to Flatulence

Story here. via Drudge Report.

Basically, a woman with "a medical condition" was worried her flatulence would offend others and so she lit matches to conceal the odor. When the lit-match smell was noted by the passengers, the plane was diverted and the "ninja of the nasty" kicked off.

It's a testiment to her personal brand of gas that she believed the terrifying smell of an in-flight fire would be preferred by other passengers to her own emissions, I guess she felt she was trying to do the right thing.

While it's a better strategy than opening a window at 35,000 feet, an even better strategy would be Beano and a high-protein, low-sulfur diet.

As this video shows, the enchilada platter plus the three-cheese omlette with broccoli is a bad choice before you get on a plane.

I'm laughing hysterically here in the office today...brings to mind a contemporary song we sing at church:
"Light the fire, in my soul.
Fan the flames, make me whole. Lord you know, where I've been.
So light the fire in my heart again."

Great post!
