(Newser) – An apparently gassy 6th grader found himself in detention last week after he farted several times on his school bus. The detention notice said it was his second offense, but “it was an accident,” Christian Summers tells Fox 8 Cleveland. “I thought it was pretty dumb.” His bus driver apparently got upset when Summers’ flatulence prompted laughter from the other children, and noted on the detention slip that the 11-year-old “thinks it’s funny to pass gas while on the van.”

Another offense could bring four or five days of detention as punishment, so now, “when I have to pass gas I have to cover myself [so] it won't stink up the bus,” Christian says.
