*boggle*. Well, I suppose they must, really.

At least they werent researching it. 'Whale flatulence researcher' has to be only one step above the guy who identified a new species of caterpillar, by the number of spines it had on its penis.

At least they're not going to be able to pretend it was someone else..

This could be important news, as we may now be able to tax the Save the Whales types to aid the research into greenhouse gasses...

To elaborate: Your whale link only makes number two in the hundred or so results you get from a search for "flatulence" in GoogleNews NZ...
