Match Game

Seriously, dozens of Friends of Unfair Park wonder why we haven't commented on the local woman who lit matches on an American Airlines flight from Nashville to Dallas to cover the smell of her flatulence. Really, what is there to say? Poor lady. Says she suffers from a medical condition; that's what my dad says , and nobody buys it either. But I couldn't resist sharing this headline from The Daily Record in Scotland: "JET GIRL STRIKES A MATCH TO HIDE STENCH OF HER TAILWIND."

Yeah, it's the fart heard 'round the world. The woman's been banned from AA "for a long time," says a spokesperson. Stinks, doesn't it? --Robert Wilonsky
