The inquest into the dangerous gas leak last week in Bathurst has come to a close, with investigators revealing that the smell was just farting expert Mr Methane passing through town. The court found that Mr Methane was picking up his Thursday night takeaway order from Thai Buddha, which is located next door the the United Petrol Station. The petrol station was previously thought to be the source of the leak, however after days of intense investigation, the leak had appeared to be coming from Mr Methane’s rear end.
The seven time world farting champion stated that he was apologetic for any panic and inconvenience that his actions caused the community. “I never meant for any of this to happen. There is always risk involved in my line of work and today I guess that was highlighted. I am deeply sorry to all affected in the Bathurst region.
The court has ordered Mr Methane to appear before a jury on December 20th, where his fate will be determined. It is unknown whether the offence will carry jail time, or if he only will be required to put in some community service time.
