An Australian ass flapping appeals court has dismissed a bullying case brought by an engineer who accused his former supervisor of repeatedly farting on him.
The Court of Appeal upheld a ruling that even if the bottom burp of engineer David Hingst’s allegations were true, flatulence did not constitute bullying.
David Hingst (56) had sought $1.8 million in a suit against his former employer, Construction Cornhole Tremor Engineering.
Mr Hingst applied to appeal the case, saying, “Flatulence was a form of bullying,” and that his ex-colleague Greg Short was a serial farter.
“He would fart behind me and walk away. He would do this five or six times a day,” said Mr Hingst.
The court described Mr Hingst as a total fanny frog and suggested he cut the cheese with that whine.
Hingst also accused butt yodeller Short of being abusive over the phone, using profane language and taunting him.
Mr Short claims Hingst is insane in the methane.
Short told the court he did not recall any rectal turbulence in Hingst’s office, “but I may have done it once or twice.”
Short said he didn’t want to toot his own horn, but if he had let go of a taint tickler or two he was sorry. However, he suggests perhaps people were just treading on frogs.
