Every now and again someone will tell a story that reduces me to the giggling 12 year-old little girl of my childhood. The recipe is pretty simple; it's got to contain the word "fart" and it immediately makes guffaw uncontrollably. It was like that this morning when I read about "FartGate" in my morning paper.
Apparently, at the 18th hole at the Buick Open Golf tournament this weekend, SOMEBODY farted loud enough for the CBS broadcast to pick up the offending sound bite. If that wasn't bad enough for the CBS brass, Tiger and his caddy Steve Williams immediately began laughing like a couple of seventh graders which made the situation all the worse.
TMZ.com is reporting that CBS is claiming that the offending rip did NOT come from the King of the Links, Tiger Woods himself, but from some other offender. Some speculate it was a "fart app" from an iphone. Whatever or whomever it was this was no doubt,"the blast heard round the world" or the "big bang theory" times twenty.
The blog site bodoglife.com claims "tiger woods fart" to be the hottest search on the internet and why not? People love to hear that the untouchable golf/sports icon, Woods may be human after all. Bodoglife.com also claims, that after some research, something stinks in this Tiger FartGate.
"Apparently, Tiger has farted at other golf tournaments. The Inquisitor did some digging and found that Woods had let one rip before. They report, "Strangely this isn’t the first time Woods has sealed an event with a fart, having also farted when he won the Arnold Palmer invitational in March."
You can check out the video here, if you're interested, but you'd better do it quick because the PGA is claiming copywright to it and videos of FartGate have been disappearing all over the internets.
What can I say? I guess I will always be 12 years-old at heart. I hope I never change. Life would be too boring otherwise.
