There has been a breath-taking release of wind in The TES online staffroom with dozens of messages about farting.
From the female head of maths who keeps an aerosol handy to deal with offences to the learned definition of an "air biscuit" (by someone called Pedagog). Farting and then implicating an unloved pupil is a tried and trusted method of classroom control. But not for a Queen Victoria soundalike who proclaims: "Personally I do not fart but I am aware that some other teachers can. I have become aware of this by noises coming from the school toilet."
"I'm going to take that 'I do not fart' comment just as I take teachers who say 'I never have discipline problems'" is the next poster's wise response.
