Fart absorbent blanket becomes an online hit
An advert for a fart smothering blanket which claims to quickly absorb the odour of flatulence has become a YouTube hit.
The 'Better Marriage Blanket' is said to contain the same type of carbon fabric used by the military to protect against chemical weapons.
Since the ad - which claims to offer a "real solution to a very real problem" - was uploaded to YouTube, it's already been watched more than 1m times.
Denver science teacher Francis Bibbo says he created the material 15 years ago but it is only now coming to market as a product for gassy couples.
Makers say the £30 blanket makes an ideal wedding or anniversary gift for your loved one… or you could just cut down on the baked-beans.
