Chinese Drywall Defense: Some People Want Their House To Smell Like Farts!

Dear readers, I have let you down.An alert tipster pointed out a story I missed this morning.How this escaped my attention is a mystery but I am deeply sorry.

Anyways, here goes:

But in a sworn deposition in May, Banner executive Scott Giering said he wasn’t aware of any problem with the Chinese-made drywall his company sold, other than through media reports. When Gonzalez asked him about if he was aware the drywall smelled bad, Giering said that was up for interpretation.

“Some people happen to like rotten egg smells,” Giering said.

“Smells like flatulence, doesn’t it,” Gonzalez asked, to which Giering replied, “Some people happen to like that.”

Giering continued:

Giering: Yeah, you know like how in your car you let rip a giant fart and turn off the A/C and close your windows and your car becomes a rolling Dutch Oven? What can I say, some people just really dig the smell of farts. Here it’s like your whole house is a permanent Dutch Oven fartfest, except all the farts are Chinese! It’s great. These homeowners should really be thanking us for this.

[turns to defense counsel]: Ouch! Stop kicking me under the table.

Defense counsel: Is this a good time for a break?
