Things best avoided in polite company...

I think what I like most about this story from Florida is the way they use my favorite (and most polite) euphemism for flatulence. ("Breaking wind")

The summary: 13-year-old student disrupts computer class by switching off computers and "breaking wind." Student admits to the campus police officer that he did both things intentionally. Officer arrests student for "disrupting a school function." (Student is fined & released to his parents.)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to forward this story to a certain staff member who has been avoiding arrest for too long.
