Who Smelt It? Who Dealt It? Controversy Erupts at a Darts Championship When Two Players Argue Over Who Passed Gas

Athletes are looking for whatever edge they can get . . . even if the sport seems random and the edge is FOUL.

Apparently that's what happened at the Grand Slam of Darts in England on Thursday, when a match ended in controversy . . . a "he who smelt it, dealt it" controversy.

A 47-year-old guy named Gary Anderson, who's a two-time world champion, beat a 34-year-old guy named Wesley Harms. But afterwards, Wesley blamed it on Gary distracting him . . . by passing NASTY SILENT GAS.

He said, quote, "It'll take me two nights to lose this smell from my nose."

Well . . . Gary is fighting back hard. Quote, "If the boy thinks I've tooted he's 1,010% wrong. I swear on my children's lives that it was not my fault."

In fact, he thinks it was WESLEY who was passing the gas. Quote, "Every time I walked past [him] there was a waft of rotten eggs."

So I guess we'll never know who dealt it. But since passing gas during a darts match isn't against the rules, odds are there's not going to be much of an investigation.
