It's All Fun and Games Until Someone Strikes a Match



Following tragedy at an exhibition match at an El Paso Taco Bell, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) is reportedly reconsidering its decision to admit Synchronized Lighting Farts as an Olympic event at the 2012 Summer Games in London.

  2. Naysayers have argues that this event stinks. I contend that all the controversy surrounding the sport is just a lot of hot air.

  3. Well beans with a breakfast fry-up is a staple in England. If they have an event like this, the whole of London will be gone!

  6. Instead of using an "exhibition match" they should use "kitchen matches" or "safety matches" and then calamities like that mentioned wouldn't happen. Come on people, quit fartin' around and use the proper equipment. OK?

  7. Well crap! The cat was saving up all the gas in his little rhyming ass to enter too.

  8. Hamsters may or may not have been involved.

    That's really funny if you remember that radio bit from about 25 years ago. If you don't. . .just trust me.

  13. I have a feeling those countries with a tradition of foods incorporating legumes would be at a distinct advantage.

  15. @Symdaddy: You'd probably need a respirator, too.
    @Nellie: So you and I share the same dream, huh?
    @Vinny: Beats the hell out of synchronized SWIMMING, doesn't it? Or curling.
    @Anne: "Look, kids, Big Ben! In orbit!"
    @Matthew: Amazing what some folks consider sport.
    @crowbloke: You'd have to sign a waiver.
    @CW: That's the "Farting-Bottle Rocket" biathlon.
    @anthony: Exhibition MATCH! I hadn't thought of that one. Well played, sir.
    @Pat: And some people think cats are standoffish.
    @Mary: Actually, I think I do. Although, a farted hamster could put an eye out.
    @Gia: The IOC decided to go with the "Cinnamon Game" instead for the teens.
    @Eva: Some pictures just cry out for an explanation.
    @Ruth: It's kinda got a Newark, New Jersey ambiance.
    @Shockgrubz: I hear the high notes are the toughest.
    @Joanne: That'll teach you to go to Taco Bell.
    @Mynx: And those who consume a high amount of cheese would be at a distinct DISadvantage.
    @Marlia: That's probably where the hamsters come in.

    1. It'd make the Olympics much more interesting to watch. Now that Lawn Darts have been banned.

  17. I've actually got a You Tube clip of college boys lighting their farts, but I'm not going to link it. It'll be more fun to let you track it down yourself.

    1. I tried it, but I had a catastrophic "O"-Ring malfunction which burnt down the forest. Leaving those cute Keebler elves homeless. Poor little buggers.
