Well, I never thought it would be THIS

Two of Malawi's most senior judicial officials are arguing over whether a new bill includes a provision that outlaws breaking wind in public.

Justice Minister George Chaponda says the new bill would criminalise flatulence to promote "public decency".

"Just go to the toilet when you feel like farting," he told local radio.

This sort of thing used to be said in a joke - now it's just a question of which country will be stupid enough to consider or impose a farting ban next.

Judging by the idiots in both the UK Health Department and the Us senate, my guess is both will race to be next - no doubt using global warming as justification.
