Inventor aims giant 'fart machine' at France

Madcap boffin Colin Furze has unleashed the world's largest fart machine across the English Channel.
The eccentric inventor has become something of a celebrity online thanks to his bizarre inventions that range from hand-mounted flamethrowers to magnetic boots that can enable someone to walk on the ceiling.

This time however he's taken things to the next level by building an enormous farting machine based on a giant pulse valveless jet engine, the same technology used in the infamous V-1 flying bombs that were deployed by the Germans during World War II.

The peculiar contraption is not only capable of producing a deafening noise and a plume of fire when it is activated but has even been set inside a huge pair of metal buttocks to turn it in to the largest fart machine ever built.

As part of a well publicized stunt, Furze last week took his bizarre invention to the cliffs of Dover where, in front of an excited crowd, he fired the huge posterior in the general direction of France.

According to reports the noise was actually heard by at least two people across the Channel.

It would be funnier if France retaliated. I wonder how they would accomplish that. A giant fan with Epoisses cheese in front of it? This has to be the saddest display of chemical warfare I have ever heard. Hehe.

It sounds like something a supervillain would do. "Now, I will activate the Flatulator 3000, and I will set the coordinates so it will hit my archenemy, France. Ooh, how I hate France and its....France-ness...IGOR, PUSH THE BUTTON!...Today, France...Tomorrow, the WORLD!!" I dunno what kind of villain would have a grudge against France, but I a fart machine would be effective, I guess.
