Fired for What!? - Farting While Singing

I don't want to set the bar too high - but this may be my best Fired for What!? yet. An opera singer claims she is no longer able to work (not clear if she was actually fired per se) because she can't stop farting while singing.

The problem allegedly arose following an episiotomy during child birth. Now, she has filed a lawsuit against the hospital, claiming that a nurse-midwife performed the procedure without consent.

C'mon, at least have the common courtesy to file some kind of ADA claim against someone! I can't generate a dozen blog posts off of a med-mal claim. Fingers crossed that she is able to cobble some type of ADA claim together.

In all seriousness, this actually sounds quite awful and I hope she recovers and finds work.
