    BBC News - Malawi row over new law banning farting

    The Malawian government has little to do,spending precious time on such ridiculous matters.

    Hounding gays,(Public humiliation followed by 14 years imprisonment last year) and now this!

    International agencies,including the USA and UK work hard in that country,and give Malawi a great deal of cash. Perhaps it's time Malawi took their starving population seriously,and concentrated on urgent matters of life and death.

    Now,if it had been April 1st-------:biggrin1::biggrin1:

    Because the justice system does stink enough...

    How do they prove it in court?
    For the offender to be caught another person must be present to witness it and, voila, reasonable doubt over the odour's origin.

    What's that expression about the person complaining is usually the one who did it?

    It'll blow over.

    Actually there is a trend for this nonsense and in the case of the Pakistan Blasphemy laws, it isn't funny at all. This type of legislation allows nasty minded little people to make false accusations that are then very damaging, even life threatening. Seems Kramer's malleus maleficarum is back in vogue.

    LOL, been following this on an IT site, with some amusement, and also the expected comments that have been popping up.

    Bit of a development has just happened, in that this law is being challenged....

    Big stink over Malawi farting ban

    What about belching? Otherwise I fear many cases of Malawi citizens exploding.

    And what about the natural law:

    The smeller finder is the first one's behinder.

    Yup, Malwai gets far too much money for nothing (and its flatulent girls for free).

    In New Jersey it was part of the clean air act. Smoke free and Fart free. 2006
    “This a FLATULENCE-FREE LOCATION. All persons experiencing the need to emit flatulent gases must exit the premises to release such gases. Those emitting such gases must not be within twenty-five feet of the entrance to this establishment.”
    “Any person emitting flatulent gas in a Flatulence-Free Location [e.g. restaurants, bars, public buildings and workplaces] shall be guilty of a disorderly persons offense and shall be fined not less than five hundred dollars nor more than one thousand dollars per offense. Each flatulent emission shall be deemed a separate offense.”
