British Bloke Creates Huge Fart Machine Aimed at France...

http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-L...imed-At-France

A Brit has taken the ancient animosity between England and France to a new (or perhaps low?) level by building a humongous fart machine aimed at France.

A novel site for anyone clambering up the Cliffs of Dover will be a British guy's huge fart machine which he says is aimed at France and has designed it so it can be heard on the French coast across the Channel.

But before ascending the cliffs have a gas mask and ear plugs at the ready!

The French will merely think the English are cooking.

A beach near Folkestone Caravan Club is not the White Cliffs of Dover. I think the National Trust would have something to say if he tried to put it up on the cliffs.

A weirdo with too much time and money on his hands.

One can only hope he puts this monstrosity on the White Cliffs so that we can have a true-to-life Monty Python sketch when the British Home Office of Fart Machines and Rectal Thermometers comes to claim its victim.

The English will merely think they've been eating French food.

And even now, French engineers are working on a way to make Cap Gris Nez sniff and shrug its shoulders.

"The French will merely think the English are cooking."

Had a lamb dish a couple weeks ago in a Michelin starred restaurant in Provence. Best lamb (with black cherries) I've ever tasted, anywhere, and we've dined at many of the most famous restaurants in the world. The chef said the lamb came from Sisteron, famous for producing the highest quality lamb in France.

I mentioned a lamb dish we had once in England that was a bit lacking and the chef shook his head sadly and said "The English butcher their lambs twice. First in the slaughterhouse and then a second time in the kitchen!".

Had to laugh (even though I think I first read this in a Peter Mayle book). And in fairness the meal we had at The Ledbury in London ranks higher than any meal we've ever had in France, but still, this was funny.

Well I think it is just another case of a Brit blowing wind...
