If methane gas is indeed a good source of energy, then we are missing out on a huge, untapped supply in Memphis. Namely, all the men, women, children, cows, horses, pigs, and other living creatures that populate this region. The topic of methane gas production a normal byproduct of digestion is not usually discussed at scientific conferences or Sunday dinners with the parson, since it is normally known by another term entirely: flatulence.
But considering the high cost of our utility bills lately, we say now is not the time to be squeamish about such matters. And if methane can help lower our bills, and considering our citys penchant for bringing in consultants to help us with just about anything and everything, the Flyer strongly recommends that we lure out of retirement a uniquely qualified individual who goes by the name of Mr. Methane.
We neednt go into this gentlemans qualifications here, except to note that anyone whose résumé includes such terms as performance flatulist, trouser trumpeting, colonic comedy, and our favorite controlled anal voicing can surely help us increase our own citys methane supply. After all, hes made a good living by taking advantage of his own, often-prodigious methane production. Surely he can help us with ours.

If anything else, the MLGW board meetings should definitely be more entertaining.
