The government of Malawi plan to punish persistent offenders "who foul the air" in a bid to "mould responsible and disciplined citizens".


This is just a total violation of freedom of speech (pun intended)

But seriously, you just ate a hot curry for lunch which had lots of beans. Maybe you could hold it in for 3 or 4 rounds, but after that its an instant gut ache isn't it? So its either that or potential jail time.

Just crazy!

What a very strange law.It so funny that they are possibly putting this law into place but, stupid at the same time.Very bizarre law.Never heard of this law before but, i guess people over there can't do anything about the law.

Ok, this particular sentence cracked me up. This really is ridiculous, how could you ever be found guilty "beyond a shadow of a doubt"?



"Children will openly deny having passed bad air and point at an elder. Culturally, this is very embarrassing," she said.

TPTB must've listened to the speeches Al Gore was giving about global warming and decided that they had to get with the times and curb methane gas being released into the atmosphere. LOL! I wonder if they install catalytic converters on all the civilians pants? It would be funny if marketers got a hold of this story and tried to market scented glade plugins! Plug it in plug it in is all i can hear now in my head lol. quite the catchy jingle

DO NOT......pull my finger.
It may cause a class C misdemeanor and you would be an accesory.

(Yes, I joined in on the infantile fart law thread. Sometimes you just gotta be a little silly.)

Ha!

Let's just hope they don't classify CO2 as "bad air" and make it illegal for their citizens to breathe as well...

Well if you see a cop walking towards you when you let rip....

just bear down and follow through.

Where will it all end?


If the 'farter' denies the offence, how will officials prove who was the culprit?

Does a fart contain DNA of its owner?


Will the police begin carrying gas jars to collect evidence?

Will we be sentenced to eat charcoal with our meals?


And what about animals? - because my dog can fart for England.

It is Africa, they can use the torture to help them ascertain the truth.

And threats of more torture to help hide the torture.

"Sir, did they torture you into admitting you farted?"

"No. That was just a coincidence... "

Personally I'm a loud and proud person and flatulence is a way for me to express my thoughts and ideas to people.

Once I do, the threads and comments rate on the 2012 and end of world forums rise dramatically.

That's why I started this tread, I was horrified and shocked with what the future holds for me.

I would be like....public enemy number one.
Would they put up a scratch & sniff poster instead of a mug-shot? "If you smell something like 'this' - the culprit is near, call us"
Will they ban tacos, cucumbers, and eggs like they did pseudoephedrine?
