Foul is fair as cushion brings end to filthy air



By SARAH GREEN, Sun Media




Jim Huza isn't pulling your leg -- or your finger for that matter. The North Carolina man and his wife, Sharron, have invented a seat cushion that filters out flatulence. It's appropriately called GasBGon.

BEANS, WIENERS AND BEER

The idea for the cushion exploded onto the scene three years ago in the uncomfortable hours following a potluck dinner of beans, wieners and beer.

"There was a lingering smell in the house and everyone was blaming our little dog," said Huza, an air quality and filtration engineer with the pulp and paper industry who is originally from Montreal.

The idea became a final project for Sharron, who was completing an Internet marketing course at the time.

"Her teacher went ballistic," Huza said, giving Sharron a more than perfect grade on the project.

GasBGon is no whoopie cushion. It's equipped with a foam noise filter to turn any bang into a whimper as well as a carbon filter with the surface area of a football field to absorb 90% of the odour.

"The only thing that's 100% is death and taxes," Huza said. "It's fun and it works."

The filters last about six months before they need replacing.

Huza is now marketing a line of cushions with sports designs, including the "break away" design for hockey fans and "real foul" for basketball enthusiasts. There's no need for party poopers at the tailgate party, he said.

"Everybody knows somebody who can use one," he said.

The cushions start at $21.95 US at http://www.gasbgon.com.

8-o

Just when you wonder "What will they think of next?". 8-o
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
