Rest easy, Americans. Your government is hard at work protecting you — from the fart.
According to the Washington Post, the Social Security Administration recently officially sanctioned a worker for allegedly creating a “hostile work environment” by passing gas in the office. The letter of reprimand cited 60 documented times over 12 weeks that the employee passed gas in his office.
According to the supervisor, the employee passed gas as many as nine times a day. There must have been a permanent bluish cloud in his office.
The employee said he suffers from “uncontrollable flatulence.” No joke.
Rather than punish the employee, the Social Security Administration ought to sell his story to cable for a new reality show — “Fartorama”. They could make enough money to save social security for all of us who will most likely never see a dime of payment because our government is broke.
At least get the guy some Beano, a useful product that prevents gas. I don’t know what this person is eating, but whatever it is, send a list of his meals to foodie networks so we can all avoid them.
