Twenty-year-old Blake Zengo learned two valuable lessons about bar-hopping this month.
Don’t do it if you are not old enough to drink legally.
And never, ever, shoot off a can of liquid fart smell into a crowded bar, ’cause that’s just all kinds of gross.
Police in Athens, Ga., arrested Zengo for both of those offenses, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.

The first clue that something rotten was going on inside Whiskey Bent at 1:30 a.m. on a Saturday night was when police saw patrons rushing out, complaining about “how bad it stunk inside,” the police report said.
People told police that Zengo was stinking up the place — literally. Police found a bottle of spray liquid called Liquid A** in his pants pocket.
You are forgiven if you’ve never heard of Liquid A**. Here’s how the prank product is described on its website.
“Once unleashed, this power-packed, super-concentrated liquid begins to evaporate, filling the air with a genuine, foul butt-crack smell with hints of dead animal and fresh poo,” it says.
“Watching the facial grimaces of people and hearing their comments about the part-your-hair, gagging stench will have you laughing until it hurts.”
One woman actually experienced those “facial grimaces” after Zengo allegedly sprayed her in the face. She later declined to press charges against him.
Police reported that Zengo, reportedly a University of Georgia student, was “very inebriated” and “slurring his words.” They charged him with disorderly conduct, public intoxication and underage consumption of alcohol.
Yep. These are the kinds of stories we go to journalism school to report.
