Quoting myself 'ere -@Nosmo King posted this on the Flatulence thread -
This bit caught my eye:
I remember reading that very bitter reply, which is from so long ago it was first printed in the newspaper rather than online, and was for some reason thinking about it a few days ago.
It had stuck in my mind because I used to work as a Royal Mail night sorter in the late '70s, though not in Leicester, and there was indeed a culture of competitive farting. Poor R. C. Draycott was not amused.
Never thought I'd read it again.
Reading about farting, and there's a R4 item about Burger King trying to reduce emissions by feeding cattle a lemongrass preparation.
There's even a song about it.
