The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) you think “won” this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies, TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.
I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.
Let’s have some fun this week. My Who Won The Week pick for this week is flatulence. Well, actually it’s Paul Oldfield, better known by his stage name Mr. Methane. Oldfield is a British flatulist or “professional farter.”
I read an article this week about Paul Oldfield, a 55 British fellow who discovered his superpower as a teen when he realized during yoga that he could suck in air on both ends of his body. After discovering his newfound ability, he performed twenty rapid-fire farts in under a minute for a group of his friends.
In the the late 1980s, after years of work in the railway industry, Oldfield turned professional, performing as Mr. Methane. While in New York, he appeared as a guest on The Howard Stern Show as the “British Blaster.” He also performed a series of fart acts on Broadway.
Oldfield still travels the world to showcase his unusual talent and is known for performing popular songs by altering the tone and pitch of his farts. One of his most popular parodies is Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight.”
Mr. Methane’s act sounds like a winner to me! It probably doesn’t smell like a winner, though.
What about you? Who (or what) do you think won the week?
