Where Harold Wayne Hadley, Jr., comes from, farting is dropping a “bomb.” The nineteen-year-old passed some serious gas int he library at a Mississippi junior college, and decided to commemorate the fact by scrawling on a piece of toilet paper that he “passed a bomb in the library.” Someone entered the bathroom he had been in and found it, passed it on to a teacher, and then a terrible series of events followed that found young Hadley, Jr. in a jail cell.
The teacher apparently was able to recognize Hadley’s handwriting and immediately contacted authorities. This led to eleven emergency agencies responding to the school on a supposed bomb threat. Hadley was quickly apprehended and booked into jail where he was held on a $20,000 bail. If prosecutors charge him with threatening to blow up the school, he could face penalties as high as ten years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
Now, that’s one hell of a gas bill.
