BREAKING FART NEWS: Barney Frank (D-MA) Farts!

It has been awhile since we’ve had any breaking fart news (and the last story was a blind item). Hard to pinpoint why, exactly. Certainly the world’s latest economic troubles can’t be EASY ON THE SYSTEM. (I’m not even holding elective office and I would say that the debt ceiling debates only generated at least four farts.) But, you know, that’s how the news cycle works. Sometimes it’s slow and quiet (literally quiet) and sometimes you can’t throw a news-stone without hitting a story about someone who is farting. When it farts it pours, as they say. Anyway, it appears our Long National Fart Drought Is Over as it appears that Barney Frank may have farted on Rachel Maddow last night. Alert the media? THIS IS THE MEDIA!

We will continue to follow this important story. (Via DailyIntelligencer.)
