£20,000 a fart
« on: October 18, 2018, 09:18:52 PM »
Would you let someone fart in your face for £20,000?

Is £20,000 the required amount of compensation for such an incident? By my reckoning, I owe my sister about £6million.

What a pile of horseshit....

Plus, a fart is blind to color, gender and religion... completely and totally equal opportunity. Too bad it wasn't an open air shart, that is what the wuss really deserves.

I wonder if a lawyer actually set down and decided the damages equalled that amount. I say give him a pack of cigarettes and say you are lucky you are still employed.

I love the way he takes a fart to the face and his first reaction is "that happened because I'm a Muslim  >o<".

You can say you want any amount of money for anything anyone does to you. I can claim Thork owes me $10 million for existing in my universe, but I would have a hard time proving that in court (which is a shame). I imagine this man will have similar difficult acquiring £20,000 for being farted upon.

Interestingly, he's not suing his colleague. Its almost as if suing someone else on minimum wage wouldn't be very fruitful. No. He's suing £Multi-million high street supermarket chain Tesco, because on that day, they were unable to prevent him from chomping on an air biscuit. This would suggest that once the fart left the co-worker, Tesco assumed full ownership because it was on their property.

However, I really hope the defence lawyer rebutts the accusation with "he who smelt it, dealt it".
