The next time you compare your flatulence to a lethal bomb while out in public, you might want to think again...
Police in Mississippi arrested 19-year-old Harold Wayne Hadley, Jr. at the junior college he attends for allegedly writing a sweet little note on a roll of toilet tissue in the bathroom that contained the word "bomb". Hadley, however, insists that the note was not a terrorist threat to blow up the school..."bomb" is a pet word he uses to describe the deadly nature of his farts!
The discovery of the note prompted eleven different emergency agencies to arrive at the school in full combat gear, and the entire campus had to be evacuated. Hadley's family members told local press that he was only expressing great pride in his ability to produce toxic levels of gas from his own body: "He was in the restroom doodling on some toilet paper ... we are from the country, and he calls passing gas, bombs," said Hadley's aunt, who preferred to remain anonymous. "[He] put 'I passed a bomb in the library,' talking about passing gas, and somebody came in and found it, gave it to a teacher that recognized his hand writing and it blew all out of proportion."
Hadley was arrested and held on $20,000 bail. If convicted of threatening to blow up the school, he faces 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
