Man sacked at work for farting
A SECURITY guard at a hospital who filmed himself farting at work over a six month period has been sacked.
The man named only as Doug, is the owner of The Fart Authority Instagram account which features dozens of videos of him farting hysterically.
In the flatulent footage, Doug faces the camera and passes wind on cue to the joy of his 28,000 followers.
He said “The lobby has really great acoustics, and naturally, we all fart.
“One day I ripped a rather nice one and got really good sound from it, so the next time it happened I recorded it and sent it to my group chat.”
Doug’s pals loved gastric gas-based hijinks and suggested he take it to online.
The man named only as Doug documented his toots and uploaded them to Instagram
On March 25 he posted his first fart to Instagram.
He goes by the pseudonym Paul Flart, a nod to the hit film Paul Blart: Mall Cop.
For half a year, he farted his way through the hospital, posting each pump to a loyal crowd of 500 followers.
But then his fan base exploded when his account went viral which eventually saw him fired from his job at the hospital.
He had violated company policy which prohibits using phones on the job “an unusually high amount of times”, and when he was asked to stop, he refused.
Doug also filmed himself wearing his security guard uniform on private property, which is also a violation.
But he says people from across the globe contact him every day, saying the clips bring them joy which Doug claims he is “all about that”.
He is now making Paul Flart merchandise and music videos on his Instagram page.
