Out of all the awkward places to let rip, a courtroom is right up there.
In Mansfield Magistrates Court someone decided attempted to sneak out a fart… that sneaky fart was silent but deadly. Literally, deadly. The whole courtroom had to be evacuated due to the stench.
On trail was a chap named David John Dennett and he was on trial for possession of an axe, whilst on bail. As it was announced that David would be facing prison for 14 weeks, someone in the public gallery let out an absolute stinker. Resulting a series of laughter, but the joke was over when they all had to be evacuated.
Someone in the courtroom stated:
The judge handed down the sentence and then paused to let it sink in. And in that silence, someone farted. We tried to stay composed but eventually everyone started laughing. It was like the back of a classroom.
That’s pretty hilarious.
