No More Farting Around In Malawi!

| Filed under: Silly!Politik

No, seriously, the country is making it a crime!

According to reports, the Malawi government is set to vote upon a new "Local Court" system that will have to power to punish a range of "crimes," including insulting the modesty of a woman, challenging to fight a duel, trespassing on a burial place and yes, even passing gas. (Or to use their lingo "fouling the air.")

If this sounds pretty ridiculous to you, you're definitely not alone. Many citizens feel the country has bigger fish to fry than holding people accountable for living by the phrase "better out than in." One such citizen told sources:

"We have serious issues affecting Malawians today. I do not know how fouling the air should take priority over regulating Chinese investments which do not employ locals, serious graft amongst legislators, especially those in the ruling party, and many more."

Agreed! And can we also ask a very important question: WHY?!

If it's a decency issue, may we remind you that sometimes the forces of nature just take over and you just can't control it!

C'mon! Just let people let 'em rip!

    How stupid. Have they lost their friggin minds??



  2. 2

    Oops! I just broke the law!! hahaha



  3. 3

    I hope they don't arrest Mad Donna for fouling the air when she goes for a visit…

    I know Madonna farts really LOUD, she won't be pleased and that's probably why she pulled her schools from that country.



  5. 5

    I love the celebrity news on this site..

    What happens if someone tells a joke and you laugh and slip a fart. Do you get arrested? How about burping? You know we were not born into this world to be controlled by idiots or anyone for that matter.

    surely it's not about Farting! Fouling the air could encompass much more serious things such as polluting the air with toxins, or emissions. That would make a lot more sense in my opinion.

    Wowww. How can someone be arrested for doing something nature intended? What next, no passing stools? I've never heard such a ridiculous controlling of human rights law.



  9. 9

    I'd be in trouble, a lot! That's just stupid. Everyone farts, I don't care who you are.

    If its a Muslim country its because of that. If a Muslim farts, or anyone in the vicinity of a Muslim farts, they then have to go and rewash themselves because it is seen as unclean. No joke. So I guess theyre making it a law instead of just a taboo. I dont know if Malawi is a Muslim country though, so my post may be irrelevant (but hey its an interesting factoid lol)

    oh my god, who has the time to come up with this stuff?



  13. 13

    Does this mean that people are going to start spontaneously combusting like in that one episode of South Park?

    Re: Stepy – where the f*ck do you get your facts, mate? you're only required to wash after passing gas if you must pray. otherwise you can practice perfect islam without compulsively washing every time you fart.

    Ridicolous!!! you could sneeze and have one slip out…or you could have irritable bowel syndrome and constantly be worried about them blasting out….are they going to investigate silent but violent ones when a crowd is present and no one will own up to it?????
    Malawi law sound like it was made before Christ. How ever does Madonna manage to step a toe there?
