Fart Noises Played During Washington Nationals’ Batting Practice, Brings New Meaning To The Word ‘Whiff’ In Baseball

//platform.twitter.com/widgets.jsIn the words of one of my ex-girlfriends, “farts are funny, man.” It turns out that the Miami Marlins thoroughly believed in this saying, too.
With the visiting Washington Nationals taking batting practice yesterday, the Marlins PA team thought that they would have some flatulence fun as their opponents stood in the batter’s box, actually pumping through fart sounds through the stadium speakers.
Per the Washington Post, the Nats have been known to play unusual batting practice music at their home park for visiting teams, so it appears the Marlins just thought to give them the same treatment—with a little childish twist, of course.
The entire anal audio session was tweeted out by Dan Kolko of MASN, who couldn’t believe what his ears were hearing—or what he was actually tweeting.
Now not only are the Marlins not playing music during Nats BP, loud fart noises are coming through the speakers. I swear, I’m not kidding. — Dan Kolko (@masnKolko) July 29, 2015
That, by the way, is the strangest thing I’ve ever tweeted, bar none.

I’ve heard of a whiff while swinging and missing as a batter in baseball, but this is just a little bit too literal meaning if you ask me.
