        1. Well, it seems that it was a "freep," and not a "flugablast," so a 5% deduction should be adequate. For a flugablast, then a 10% deduction would be required by the Geneva Convention by-laws.

                1. Let's remember that there's a reason that farts smell: It's so deaf people can enjoy them, too.
