The Fart

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
On August 6th, 1945, at 8.15am, the Enola Gay, under the direction of President Harry S. Truman, dropped ‘Little Boy’ – one of the first atom bombs – on Hiroshima. Essentially, it ended the American war with Japan.

At 8.14 this morning, for no good reason, David Geraint Evans dropped something similar.

750 words of comic genius from a usually miserable Welsh writer.

This may be a short story but my god it is funny, the descriptions of the 'event' and its aftermath are superb (in fact they're so good you can almost taste it). Yes it is a little crude but with a title like that what do you expect. Very funny and a great pick me up for a dull day!
