There really is something about farts that fascinates people.
Recently, we had a political #FartGate across the pond in America, which wasn’t even the first time #FartGate had trended on social media.
The infamous professional darts incident from last year has now been joined in the sporting
anals annals of history by the events of the Masters Snooker final between Stuart Bingham and Ali Carter.
Here’s the Mirror:
Players were distracted by the noise as they got down to play a shot forcing referee Brendan Moore to halt play to try and find the perpetrator.
Bingham was visibly annoyed and looked towards the crowd along with the referee, pointing in the area which the noise was coming from.
Journalist Shamoon Hafeez, at the Alexandra Palace for the final, said: “Play momentarily stopped at Alexandra Palace.
“Looks like someone has planted a whoopie cushion inside the arena and it keeps going off making a “poooooop” sound.
Here’s the moment play was halted. Listen around the 20-second mark and you’ll hear the sound ring out.
There’s another, longer drawn-out noise around 37 seconds:
Real highbrow stuff.
At first, it was believed that a simple whoopee cushion was the culprit, but then officials realised the device was planted under a seat, with the perpetrator sitting elsewhere controlling it.
Who would do such a thing? A YouTube account called Trollstation, apparently:
Apparently a ‘fart box’ was used.
His parents must be proud.
