There was near-pandemonium at the UN anti-racism conference in Geneva this afternoon, when dozens of diplomats headed for the exits after Iranian leader President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad interrupted his speech, to let rip with an enormous fart.
The trump, which measured 1.2 on the Richter scale, could be heard as far away as the bar, where the British ambassador, Peter Gooderham, was, allegedly, 'wetting his throat'. Said he:
"There was a rumble, and everything shook. Suddenly, lots of the other delegates were rushing out of the conference hall with their hands over their faces, and seconds later there was a horrific smell."
President Ahmadinejad is well-known in his own country for passing wind in public, and has put it down to his insatiable appetite for cabbage soup.
I can't be bothered to write anymore, but before I go, I just want to assure readers that THIS NOT A RACIST STORY.
