A whiff of intolerance

New York has now extended its smoking ban outside to parks, public squares and beaches, but that’s nothing compared with Malawi, which has now apparently banned public flatulence. If introduced in the UK that would make every CAMRA beer festival unviable – who hasn’t been standing there in the crowd when someone has suddenly dropped one? “Then they came for the farters” – you read it here first!


  1. I think there is some debate about whether public flatulence is or is not illegal in Malawi. I'm with any government that wants to outlaw it. And a camra ban would be so welcome :-)

  2. I am sure a ban or a prescription on public flatulence would be an anti senior citizen discrimination
