A Georgia man has been arrested after police say he unleashed a bottle of Liquid Ass inside an Athens bar named “Whiskey Bent.”
The Athens Banner-Herald reports that a woman told officers 20-year-old Blake Leland Zengo sprayed her in the face with a product designed to smell like flatulence.
An Athens-Clarke County police report says several people left the bar, citing the foul smell inside.
When police found Zengo in the bar's patio area, he claimed to not know what was going on, saying that he didn’t spray anything. But police described Zengo as being “very inebriated, and … slurring his words.”
Police found a bottle of the flatulence spray in his pants pocket, but did not indicate whether it was his back pocket.
The website for the prank product promises: “Once unleashed, this power-packed, super-concentrated liquid begins to evaporate, filling the air with a genuine, foul butt-crack smell with hints of dead animal and fresh poo. The funny pranks you can pull with Liquid ASS are unlimited. Watching the facial grimaces of people and hearing their comments about the part-your-hair, gagging stench will have you laughing until it hurts.”
Apparently the spray lives up to its promise, except for the “laughing until it hurts” part.
Athens is home to the University of Georgia.
