Colin Furze is a mad scientist by night. But by day, he’s a plumber from Stamford, Lincolnshire, England.
By combining his knowledge of pipes with his general craziness, Furze has decided to build a giant fart machine and aim it at France.
The machine, which Furze will house in a pair of specially constructed buttocks, is a giant pulse valveless jet engine – as used in Nazi V-1 bombs during the Second World War – that creates a plume of fire to go along with its deafening roar. Furze hopes to mount the contraption on the cliffs of Dover on July 24, between 6 and 7pm.
France lies just 21 miles from the coast of Dover, England.
