Just when you think you’ve heard or seen it all, another strange thing surfaces! For crying out loud, which one is ‘farting’ competition again?
Residents of Pretoria will be holding their noses this weekend. That is because kwaito musician Thabo Mahlare, is planning to host a farting competition! The 37-year-old artiste, also known as Behind Bars, told Daily Sun the showdown will see the contestant with the loudest fart going home with R500 (N6,600 ).
“I have noticed people in my area like to fart, as they do so often. When we are just chilling, someone will just fart loudly. I got so irritated every time my friend farted. One day‚ I told him that I am going to run a competition so he can no longer do it for free. I have realised that there are people who are talented in farting and do it effortlessly,” Mahlare said.
Thabo said he planned to provide contestants with Stameta, boiled eggs, castor oil and milk to help them fart. He added: “I will also be providing diapers for those who slip up and shit themselves. I will be sitting with the judges who will be looking for someone who has the loudest and foulest fart. The longer the fart takes‚ the better the chance of winning the contest stands."
Thabo said entrance to the competition was free and open to all age groups. He already had 11 contestants and he hoped more would enter. Those interested in entering are encouraged to visit the Mahube Complex in Mamelodi to put down their names.
When asked how he would determine which fart was the loudest, Thabo said he would put four speakers on the stage and give the contestants on stage a microphone to put near their backside.
Thabo said if the event was a success he would think about making it an annual competition. He has even composed a song about farting and it is available on Datalife host. It will soon be on Soundcloud.
