image for British Gas Makes Energy from Sewage
A new meaning to Natural Gas

British Gas has teamed up with local water authorities to utilise sewage farms to make gas.

Sewage is stirred and aerated and methane gas is made by the action of bacteria. The amount of solid waste produced by each person each year can supply enough energy to light 20 houses for a week.

British Gas deny that this is just a cheap publicity stunt and aim to have gas production facilities at most sewage treatment works by the end of 2017. They hope it will help to lower their dependence on Russian piped gas; there is even talk of importing shit from all over Europe where some countries report a turd mountain as well as butter and wheat mountains.

An added benefit, pointed out by British Gas, is that with the new gas supply nobody is ever in doubt if they get a gas leak because the gas smells like a fart from a drunken curry addict.

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