(Scroll down for video) A woman in the United Kingdom, was surprised to receive hundreds of phone calls, inquiring about her classes after placing an ad in a newspaper.

Brenda Guinn of Wales, did not know why her art classes suddenly attracted so much attention until she checked her ad in the classified section of the paper.

Instead of advertising art classes, the newspaper accidentally wrote “fart classes.” The ad read: “Fart classes at Bay Gallery, Station Road. Wednesday and Thursday, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.”

As soon as the newspaper was distributed, Guinn got hundreds of phone calls. Most people made rude jokes and asked if they could bring their sons to join the fart classes.

People also checked out Guinn’s Facebook page, where they made toilet jokes. The North Wales Weekly News apologized to the woman for the error.

After Guinn retired, she set up a Pop In and Paint workshop to pursue her passion for art.
