The Bowie BaySox, the double A minor league affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, are celebrating the birth of our country in the way our dad probably would, if he owned a baseball team: By farting. The BaySox, on July 4, are attempting to break the world record for fake flatulence, handed out whoopie cushions for the first 4,000 fans. Immediately following the BaySox-Harrisburg Senators game, fans will enjoy fireworks and then, as the club press release puts it, "release." You know what's funny? This is actually the third time the team has tried to break the Guinness World Record for fake farting. It has to be depressing to try to break such a record, and fail. Twice.
