Gone With The Wind

Maurice Fox – Truth or Hoax?

Here’s another story I received via email recently that may be true.. or it may be a hoax.

What do you think?

Maurice Fox, a 77 year old man from Devon, has been banned from breaking wind in his local social club.

Kirkham Street Sports and Social Club in Paignton sent Mr Fox a letter, asking him to consider his actions as other members had claimed his flatulence was ‘disgusting’.

Maurice Fox, who has been a regular visitor to the club for over 20 years said, ‘I am happy to oblige them, there is no problem. I do get a bit windy – I am an old fart now.’

Maurice then went on to say that he had to leave the club around 3 times per night to break wind.

Mr Fox said he was surprised to receive the letter, which urged him to leave the premises as and when required, as he had been given no kind of verbal warning. He said, ‘I think someone has complained about the noise. I am a loud farter, but there is no smell.’

Maurice also frequents another club – Palace Place – but has not been spoken to about his flatulence there.

Neither club has offered any comment on this issue.

What do you think? Is this real or is it a joke?
