Weekly World News alert:
U.S. soliders ordered to stop breaking wind.

Publication: Weekly World News
Date: 10 Oct. 2011

The Weekly World News throws a curveball this week and reports a story actually covered in magazines that have fact checkers and editorial standards. Marines in Afghanistan have been ordered not to fart audibly in the presence of Afghan allies, who find the practice offensive.

Yes, true story in the Weekly World News. Makes you re-think your opinion of the two-headed Bigfoot shot dead on the White House lawn, doesn't it?

Okay, so maybe not.

I don't know if the military can actually create a breed of non-farting soldier. If so, it will rank right up there with the scientific effort it took to turn Steve Rogers into Captain America.
