    The SSA officially reprimanded a guy in its Baltimore office because he couldn't (or wouldn't) stop farting at his desk, and the resulting odor created a "hostile work environment." The reprimand has been rescinded after it was posted on The Smoking Gun.


    I wonder what this guy's octave range is ...

    Well, fart on them, too. This sort of thing is a medical issue and more akin to, say, coughing or burbing than smoking.

  5. The guy better not be eating a massive burrito for lunch and then claim it's not his fault.
