An Attack of Wind

WindWe were at school assembly in the hall.  It was the usual monotony until the deputy head was reading his notes/giving his orders.  About half way through came what appeared to be an enormous raspberry sound.  It stopped him in his tracks.  He stormed off to the exclamation "I have nothing more to say!"

The noise was from the fifth form rows but the exact location uncertain.  Those near me thought it was Fred Brown, a fine upstanding pupil, but it wasn't.  No, after all these years I have to raise my hand and admit I let forth one explosive break of wind.  Hero or villain?  A bit of both I guess.
