Harold Wayne Hadley of Mississippi is your typical 19-year-old boy. He likes sports, action movies, and, of course, fart jokes. Although considering how much trouble a fart joke got him in, he may like those a lot less now.



Hadley was joking around with friends at his junior college, and passed one of them a note that said “I passed a bomb in the library”, written on toilet paper. Apparently, Hadley calls farts “bombs”, but his teacher isn’t big on context: when she saw the note, she called in a bomb scare.

No fewer than eleven emergency agencies called in to deal with Hadley’s gas. Once they realized that there wasn’t a bomb, they arrested Hadley. He’s currently in jail on $20,000 bail awaiting trial for bomb threats. If convicted, he could serve up to 10 years and pay a $10,000 fine.

Come on, guys, all this for a fart joke? Let the poor guy go, so he can pass his bombs in peace.
