Subject:        And now for something completely different....

Here's one for the spin-off hounds.  I just came across it in one of my
supplier catalogues:

Mr. Methane: "Mr. Methane.Com"

"Just when you thought you've heard everything, along comes Mr. Methane,
the man who put art in fart.  Introduced to the US via the Howard Stern
Show, Mr. Methane is the world's only performing flatulist (one who
breaks wind).  We guarantee that all the colon coughs you hear on this
CD were delivered by Mr. Methane's reverberating rectum.  Imagine your
favorite classical music or Shakespeare passages accompanied by trowser
trumpets.  This mixture of Pop, Rock, Dance and Classical music styles
come together with Mr. Methane's natural talent to give you a truly
unique listening experience.  Beware of Open Flames."

Tracks include Twelfth Night, Spring / Hamlet, Romeo  & Juliet, As You
Like It, Taming of the Shrew, Twelfth Night part II, Othello,
Beethoven's 9th / Richard the 3rd, Hamlet (part 2)

along with a number of mainstream classical titles such as the 1812
Overture, Swan Lake and It's Flatulation.

The album is due out on July 18.  Anyone interested in pre-booking can
contact me off-list, if you dare.
