Scientists have made a breakthrough in electronic odour perception...in an attempt to produce an electronic drug sniffer, they discovered that whereas synthetic chemical odours were difficult to detect, human body odours, particularly flatulence, registered strongly on their machine.

The idea has now been taken up by the Ministry Of Defence after troops in Afghanistan reported that, in the summer heat, flatulence could remain in the air for up to four hours.

With the need to remain mobile Taliban insurgents have taken to eating cold food on the move resulting in poor digestion and massive flatulence.

Field tests on the electronic sniffer have revealed that the sniffer could detect residual food odours of the food types favoured by the Taliban and with careful calibration could trace the flatulence back to it's source.

Unofficial sources stated that Special Forces had already scored a success with the sniffer by creeping up on a Taliban unit having a farting contest and although two of the Special Forces were overcome by fumes they were able to bottle up the insurgents until regular troops arrived to contain them

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
