The March 11 bill from the Outback Pizza & Nightclub in Ludlow, Vermont - real, or fake?

Paul O'Flaherty recently posted an image from Imgur/Reddit entitled My friends (sic) bar bill.


The person who posted the bar bill took great care to delete certain information from the image. The bar name at the top of the image was whited out, as was the state in which the bar was located. However, the person failed to delete the phone number, 8022286600, which made it a trivial task to locate the Outback Pizza & Nightclub in Ludlow, Vermont (Facebook page here).

So, was the $2 "farting charge" on ticket #79 on 3/11/2011 9:15:36 PM legit, or did someone doctor up the ticket before posting the image?

However, this is not the first time that the words "farting" and "Ludlow" have been associated. Let's go back to 1607:

In 1607, Henry Ludlow farted in Parliament during a debate about the naturalization of the Scots. This may have been an accident – his father Sir Edward Ludlow was renowned for having farted in a committee meeting – but the House fell about and Ludlow’s farting Nay-vote passed into folklore.
