A popular opera singer is suing the United States government for making her the butt of jokes – because an army doctor botched an operation, causing her to fart uncontrollably when stretching for a high note.
Amy Herbst, whose husband is an Army officer, was given an unexpected procedure during the delivery of her son, which played havoc with her digestive system. Her lawsuit alleges she's suffering from incontinence, leakage, and worst of all, flatulence that kicks in big time when she exerts her muscles in singing.
She's been told that surgery to repair her sphincter could fix the problem, but might result in her being unable to have more children, so she's putting it off – and filing a lawsuit over the musical toots. (UPI)
