UnNews:Australians named worst "fart" emitters
15 November 2007
A STUDY OF THE WORLDS arse emissions has shown the extent to which developed countries produce more noxious fart gas per arse than emerging economies. Australians were found to be the world's worst polluters per capita, producing five times as much methane from farts as Tom Cruise.
The US came second with eight tonnes of the methane gas per arse - 16 times more than that produced by Sean Connery. The US also produced the most noxious flatulance in total, followed by China. The Flatulance Arse Tracking for Action (FARTA) website is the first global inventory of digestive tract emissions and looks at more than 30,000,000 arses.
FARTA points out that while US bottoms emit the most arse gas, releasing 2.5bn tonnes into the atmosphere each year, Australian anal exit holes are the least efficient on a per capita basis, with stinking emissions of 10 tonnes, compared with the US's 8.2 tonnes. Additionally the increased consumption of "curried Kangaroo", coupled with cheap lager, throughout Australia is seen asa amjor reason as to how badly the country has faired in the study.
Kevin Phumph, a research assistant at the Center for Global Fart Development, hoped the online inventory would help the push towards a lessening of farts throughout the world, "if we can educate people to, perhaps, bottle up their farts or eat less curry then that has to be a good thing, doesn't it?" he told Unnews.
Unemployed Australian alcoholic Barry Fourexe, 56, greeted the reports findings with typical Aussie humour, "fucking whinging pom bastards!", he said randomly.
