Wow. Suddenly a new cool expression appears out of the blue to enrich our culture: herring fart. While the recent discovery that herrings communicate by farting is probably not good news for Red Herring, I doubt those stinky fishes are saying much, not even enough to qualify as micro-content. On the other hand, I am tired of the expression bullshit, so the discovery of herring fart is good news to me.
I am also glad that Mother Earth doesn't communicate the same way because we'll have many more Mount St. Helens if she did. After all, she has a lot to say to us.
