Too late?

Written by  The Hound

Your canine crusader was recently contacted by a concerned reader who’s been prompted to do some research, given the relentless attack upon agriculture in NZ by the incumbent government and other extremist groups.

“My topic was the composition of the human fart, which is made up of 60% nitrogen, 20% hydrogen, 10% carbon dioxide, 5-10% methane and 1% hydrogen sulphide (the smelly bit),” our scientific friend informs.

“I think action needs to be taken -- a serious cull or mitigation through administration of a GM vaccine,” he goes on. Meanwhile, the Hound’s correspondent believes the other burning issue is the health & safety aspect.

“Both methane and hydrogen (35% of the composition of said fart) are FLAMMABLE!” he explains. “Something must be done!” His proposal is an immediate declaration of a ‘Fart Emergency’. “Alas, with all the hot air coming our way since the coalition took office.”
