Friday Fuckwit is a Porker

A PORTLY pig with flatulence triggered a minor emergency near Bendigo this week when smells wafting from the 120kg porker sparked fears of a potentially dangerous gas leak.

Two Country Fire Authority tankers and 15 firefighters turned out in darkness to search the source of the leak at a property at Axedale, east of Bendigo. But the likely culprit was soon sniffed out, the pet sow startled from slumber in the dead of night.

"She got very excited when two trucks and 15 firies turned up and she squealed and farted and squealed and farted," said fire chief Peter Harkins.

"I haven't heard too many pigs fart but I would describe it as very full-on."

Mr Harkins said the family had done the right thing by calling 000 to report a suspected gas leak: "It's all bottled gas up here and a leaking cylinder could pose a major fire risk.

As my Grandma would say "Where ere you be, let your wind go free!" Just make sure you're upwind from the Fire Brigade or a dinosaur.

Still the line: "I haven't heard too many pigs fart but I would describe it as very full-on."
...is not a common one for a Fire Chief to utter, is it?

Hmmmm... I spent some of my childhood and youth cleaning up pigsties and runs (one of my uncles raised pigs and we used to "help" when we were over to visit), but I don't recall any farting. But if the farts are anything like the manure they leave behind, I could well imagine considering the occurrence a potential disaster. Pigs'll eat anything, including their own shit, so I can imagine the gas outlet could light a few fires!

jay said...

otin said...

typical, when I fart,someone always calls me a pig, but no one ever calls the emergency crews!

Ropi said...

Oh, that sounds interesting.

Baino said...

Haha I've never even seen the word in print in a newspaper before! That's country folk for you. They tell it how it is!

Who can't laugh at a botty burp Alan? Although only sun shines out of my . . .

Hehe . . I'm just glad I don't expel green gas!

Nothing wrong with a good rural pong Tom

Haha thanks Candie. Like to start the weekend on a high 'note'

OH ROY! Now you've put me off pork for ever! I bought some 'fertiliser infused' topsoil once and I'm sure it was full of pig poo. Stank the place out for weeks! Made the grass grow though.

Love the Firies Jay . . .

Haha, they wouldn't let anyone take photos of the offending porcine or let their names be published they were so embarrassed Suze.

Otin? Didn't think you swung that way . . . Love a fireman I does

Haha , . Ropi you're so laid back.

Ronda Laveen said...

Oh, that poor fartin' little, um, big pigger. She probably got the gas rumbling even more when the vehicles showed up.

Megan said...

Snort!

I've never smelt a pig fart and I have no wish to. It's bad enough having the lingering odour of a passing pig truck when I'm walking home from work. The smell from those lingers much, much longer than the cattle or sheep trucks.

nick said...

Sorry to say that reminded me immediately of the American guy Anthony Sowell who's accused of multiple murders. The stench of rotting bodies was thought at first to be the smell from a local sausage factory. Yukkk.

Leah said...

Laughing out loud. I love a good pig fart story. Okay, this is the first one I've ever heard, but man, it was good.

lettuce said...

ha

hahaha

Kate said...

There's another good reason for not keeping pigs!!!!

CatLadyLarew said...

Ah, pig farts... so refreshing.

Renee said...

Laughing because this porker sounds like me.

One time the kids and Wahid thought there was a gas leak and it was me.

Totally feeling like shit, you are right.

Love Renee xoxo

Oh my. I'd get excited if 15 firies turned up on my doorstop too. Those Aussie firies are a joy to behold (and they know it, bless their heroic socks).I'd try to be more coy than piggie's alernating squealing and farting response,however the old bod often lets me down these days, so a few squeals and farts may not be out of the realms of possibility! Loved the animation! Reminds me of trying to supervise the morning talk/show-and-tell circle of the junior primary class, where the amusement of the well-delivered fart is much more interesting to classmates, than someone else's dumb goldfish.
