A kid who witnessed the dam at Tempe Town Lake burst last week says his initial thought after hearing a loud "boom" was that his sister farted.

Anyone with a sister knows any public discussion of her flatulence is a terrific revenge mechanism -- or a great way to get yourself smacked. Or both.

Publicly discussing your sister's ass-noise might warrant a smack, but discussing it with a local TV reporter and having the footage find its way to Jimmy Kimmel Live and broadcast across the entire country is probably enough to put the children of some lucky family therapist through college.

Check out Lucas Henderson talk about his sister's fart on Jimmy Kimmel Live after the jump.
