Oxford is embarrased...

The Earl of Oxford making his low obesiance to Queen Elizabeth I,
 happened to let a Fart, at which he was so abashed and ashamed 
that he went to travel seven years.
On his return the Queen welcomed him home and said, 
'My Lord I had forgot the Fart.'

from Brief Lives by John Aubrey late 17th century
