WTF of the Day: Farting Cows Make Barn Explode in Germany
- -
A herd of dairy cows nearly lifted the roof off their barn in central Germany when methane released by the animals caused an explosion.

Police in Hesse state said in a statement that a static electric charge apparently triggered the detonation, and a spurt of flame, on Monday at a farm in Rasdorf. The roof was slightly damaged and one cow suffered light burns. No people were hurt.

Police say 90 cows are kept in the shed and it wasn't clear why quantities of methane had built up. Bovine belching and flatulence releases large quantities of the gas.

In a bizarre incident on ESPN, former NFL linebacker Shawne Merriman walked away in the middle of an interview with Bomani Jones and Dan LeBatard on the show Highly Questionable. The show was taped a month ago and on LeBatard's Nov. 21 radio show the two TV hosts discussed the incident in detail. They also revealed that an earlier part of the discussion had focused on Merriman's relationship with ex-girlfriend Tila Tequila.

Merriman remained cordial throughout the interview, even while leaving, which made the whole thing all-the-more strange. When Merriman decided to leave the hosts were asking him pretty standard stuff so who really knows why he got up and left.
