Darts and farts: A tale of two grown men acting very immature

Pin It
Just in case you had any doubts, darts and farts do not mix well.In fact, when the two become involved, things can get pretty ugly. Just ask Gary Anderson (Grown Man #1) and Wesley Harms (Grown Man #2,) professional dart players who recently accused each other of farting at the Grand Slam of Darts in England.

As The Guardian reported on Friday, after Anderson of Scotland beat Harms, a Dutch player, 10-2 in a match that earned him a spot in the quarter-finals, some foul-smelling accusations came out.

In a post-match interview, Harms said he wasn’t playing up to his normal caliber because Anderson straight up farted on the stage before him, leaving him to endure a “fragrant smell.”

Harms then reportedly elaborated on the game-changing incident during an interview with Dutch TV station RTL7L, saying, “It’ll take me two nights to lose this smell from my nose.”

Sounds a little dramatic, dude. No?

Anderson, who’s won the title of world champion twice, was quick to refute Harms’ accusations. In fact, he said it was Harms who farted. Hmm…

“It definitely came from table-side and it was eggs, rotten eggs, but not from me. Every time I walked past there was a waft of rotten eggs so that’s why I was thinking it was him. It definitely wasn’t me,” Grown Man #1 — I mean, Anderson — said.

“It was bad. It was a stink, then he started to play better and I thought he must have needed to get some wind out. If somebody has done that they need to see a doctor. Seemingly he says it was me but I would admit it.”

Wesley Harms , possible farter.

And if you guessed Harms would deny he was the one who dealt it, you’re correct! In fact, he swore on the lives of his children he did not. Again with the drama!

“If the boy [Anderson] thinks I’ve farted he’s 1,010% wrong. I swear on my children’s lives that it was not my fault. I had a bad stomach once on stage before and admitted it. So I’m not going to lie about farting on stage.”

According to The Guardian, Anderson has admitted to farting on stage in the past, but it’s been noted he “never used it as an advantage.”

Who knew darts was such a personal, invasive, TMI-filled sport?

Though we may never know which Grown Man, if any, farted at this competition, at least we all got to experience this petty argument together. And hey, maybe Nick Offerman and Rob Delaney will make a film about it.
