I was driving back from a meeting this afternoon. I stopped at a stoplight. To my left was a bus and on the other side of it, more cars. I heard a strange noise out the open window, several yelping grunts, unmistakably male, like the sound of sharp pain or sexual release. I looked out my window and didn't see anything out of the ordinary in the bus or the cars. Maybe it was actually a car sound, someone's tires doing something odd? Then someone yelled "Hey... hey you, man." I looked back out and the bus driver, a large man, was gesturing at me. I said, "What?" He goes, "Were you looking around, like somebody made a funny noise?" I said, "Yeah." He goes, "Well, pray for me. Because that was me burping." And then the bus drove away. What?
