Making Flatulence Illegal

Flat-D flatulence odor control products may become very popular in Malawi.

The government of Malawi plan to punish persistent offenders 'who foul the air' in a bid to 'mould responsible and disciplined citizens.'

But locals fear that pinning responsibility on the crime will be difficult - and may lead to miscarriages of justice as 'criminals' attempt to blame others for their offence.

One Malawian told the website 'My goodness. What happens in a public place where a group is gathered. Do they lock up half a minibus?

'And how about at meetings where it is difficult to pinpoint 'culprits'?

The crime of fart will be prosecuted in a new "Local Court" system which will also punish a range of other new crimes such as insulting female modesty, trespassing on a burial site and pretending to be a fortune teller.
