Supporters of Bernie Sanders plan what they say will be “the world’s largest fart-in” as a protest against the Democratic party’s nomination of Hillary Clinton, according to a leading activist quoted on political site Truthdig.

The protest will coincide with Clinton’s nomination acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in the final week of July.
Protest leader Cheri Honkala and her organisation ‘The Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign’ will host a pre-speech dinner of beans for anyone who wants to get involved.
We will be holding a massive bean supper for Bernie Sanders delegates on American Street in my Kensington neighborhood on the afternoon of July 28.
The Sanders delegates, their bellies full of beans, will be able to return to the Wells Fargo Center and greet the rhetorical flatulence of Hillary Clinton with the real thing.
Not to sound immature or anything, but there are contexts and situations where farts can be funny no matter how old you are. Imagine thousands of people eating at a bean supper and then heading over to this speech just so they can all gather around Hillary Clinton and fart all over her. That’s pretty funny whether you’re 7 or 70.
Also a pretty smart way of protesting without getting dashed out by security. Whenever people roll up to Trump rallies making a load of noise and disrupting things, they get thrown out instantly. But when you’re quietly unleashing farts all around the building? No one can say for sure it’s you. Well played, Poor People’s Economic Human Rights Campaign. Well played.
Although, according to new research, sniffing farts help you live longer. So they may just be doing her (and everyone else in attendance) a favour.
