Government-Shattering Fart Halts Kenyan Regional Assembly For 10 minutes

Now this is our kind of politics. Here's the full BBC News story, but the title pretty much says it all. A regional assembly in Kenya's Homa Bay had to take a 10 minute break due to a particularly awful trouser-cloud someone laid in the chamber. Apparently there was a conversation over blame and an ensuing scramble to find some kind of air freshener, but the debate-stopping fart dissipated enough after a while for business to continue. We've read about farts shutting down job sites, but a fart that halt local government is a new high.
