Vaccine found for flatulent sheep

Psychiatrist shows a patient an inkblot. "What do you see?" he asks.

Patient replies, "Sex."

Doctor turns the page, shows him another inkblot. "And now?"

"Sex"

Next inkblot, same thing.

"Would you say you're preoccupied with sex?"

"What do you mean, you're the one showing me dirty pictures!"

When I blogged that a pair of poopsing bulldogs won the top dog award at the Cannes film festival last May, little did I know that creature-fart was such an environmental hazard. Darned if it isn't in the news again. So don't accuse me of gasbagging; I just post what I see!

Eructations from farm animals account for a fifth of all global emissions of methane, a greenhouse gas that is less plentiful but far more potent than the most notorious culprit, carbon dioxide (CO2).

Chewing over the problem, scientists at Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation believe a new vaccine can help protect Earth from the ruminant menace, New Scientist reports.

It couldn't just be the critters, could it? So go easy on the beans from now on, eh?

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
