AFP - Underpants which are claimed to neutralise the smell of flatulence are proving a hit in Japan, whose hard-working businessmen seem to like the idea of breaking wind without getting rumbled.
"It took us a few years to develop the first deodorant pants that are comfortable enough to wear in daily life but efficient in quickly eliminating strong smells," said Nami Yoshida, a spokeswoman for the company, Seiren.
The underwear is manufactured with niff-absorbing ceramic particles in the material fibres.
Seiren developed the technology after being contacted by a doctor who wanted something to disguise the regular parps emitted by people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.
The company's range has now expanded to 22 items, including socks that prevent feet from smelling and t-shirts that mask the whiff of sweaty armpits.

They should call them thunderpants!
That way you'll filter everything out and be perfectly socially acceptable. Of course, after it's fitted in place you may walk a little funny, but nothing's perfect, right?
I'm sure you've thought of this, but you can get firearm silencers in many different calibers. In your case, fitting the proper one might be a bit awkward, but maybe worth it?
