A farting competition that went viral online — with more than 15,000 clicking attending on Facebook — was no more than a fart in the wind.
Saturday's event saw only a handful competitors turn up, far outnumbered by the media. One cameraman even offered to take part to boost numbers.
What initially started as a joke — farting around, even — quickly became a reality for the organisers. They booked... Еще out a room at Liege's Palais de Congres and created four categories: the longest fart, the most melodic, the two-sound fart and the worst-smelling.
Burning farts were banned due to fire-safety concerns, while the wet fart was considered a slippery risk, according to organiser Marc.
After a short judging process, the winners were awarded a Carrefour cassoulet and cauliflower.
