To quickly enter a room, fart, and then leave. Not to be confused with one fowl swoop, which is the codename for a failed US military programme from the 1950s that attempted to breed chickens that would fly over enemy territory and drop explosive eggs. Despite poaching some of the best scientists of the day, the military scrambled to get the programme off the ground. Sure, there was the fact that chickens can’t really fly, and that the explosive eggs were prone to detonate prematurely (leaving more than just egg on people’s faces). The failure of the programme really boiled down to the fact that a bunch of chickens don’t really make great warriors. The programme was shut down in one fell swoop.
