i didnt know where to post this but this is hilarious.

do you guys think this is right and should be enforced?

and if so how hard is it going to be to enforce?

Is this the government going mad?

Is this the government trying to enforce its authority ie saying "we are the government we can do what we like"

Not only are they saying we can do what we want - they are laughing at the people while they are doing it.

Someone must have been the victim of a Dutch oven and got upset.

This will certainly put the wind up the Malawian people !


There seems to be some dispute as to whether this new bill will legally prohibit farting in public.

Here is the BBC report on the story:

I spent 10 minutes attempting to prove this a hoax.... I am terrified to say, this is honestly being discussed.. Impossible to prove... That guy is right... This is embarrassing that some form of Govt. somewhere, is truly discussing this.

Apparently not a fake, just a "wrong interpretation".

Ok so if 3 people are in an elevator and one of them lets go a SBD who goes to jail?

What if you fart in jail?

Would eating baked beans be probable cause?

Would are fresheners be paraphinalia?

Im sure some one can help Sniff out the answers.

i dont think farting in public is acceptable behaviour to be honest...what u do in your own home is fine but i dont want to be in the cinema, being smothered by the smell of anothers bowels, or be eating a resturaunt and have to hear or smell it...

we do have public restrooms ....

im not sayin its bad to do it in the street ...but in places where there is food and u are closed off then no its not acceptable.

would be funny to see no farting signs the with a little UU

the average human farts 15-30 times a day. It is an uncontrollable human process and banning it in public would be like saying, you can't sneeze in public or you will be fined. Yea, you may be able to hold it for a but, but eventually it will come out. I wonder if the police will apply the "you smelt it, you delt it" rule.

Absolutely ridiculous. Farting is one of God's gifts to mankind, next to burping.

Silent farting will now be considered "terrorism", I bet.

well silent farts generally have the worst impact....they are like stealth bombers....go undetected until the eggy stench hits your nostrils by which time its too late and your engulfed....least with loud ones u hear em coming and have about ten seconds to get the hell outta dodge

Omgwhat a story, I had to look twice at the article to believe it. Completely hilarious, ow can they stop people from farting?

Stick Corks Up thier Hineys? Or If they are caught, force them to stick thier heads between thier legs and sniff thier own butts?

Wait one moment they need to stop animals from letting off too, Have you ever smelt an Elephant Fart or a Cows Fart Gee that is way worse than a human fart.

it could be good for the economy, they could get a bunch of little people cops on the beat in order to have troops as close as possible to identify ground zero
