Malawi Anti-Flatus Law Continues to Make News Across The World
A few weeks ago, some of you read an article here about a new legislation in the Malawian Parliament aiming to criminalize the passing of gas or flatulence in public. The Malawian public flatus law continues to make news in the US and across the world.
Some are calling it a long-overdue law others are calling it insane or just too much government interference. One of the opponents is Ms Whoopi, the outspoken host of the ABC show the View
“I don’t think my future travel plans will include the African nation of Malawi,” Whoopi Goldberg joked recently on “The View.”
Locals fear that it might prove hard to pin an offense on a particular person, given how easy it is for people to blame others for flatulence.
To fix that problem with the proposed law, Whoopi offered up a simple fix:
“It should include ‘he who smelt it dealt it.’”
It will be news to say that most African dictators are often unconventional, but this new law has set the African nation of Malawi into a frenzy. The dictator Bingu wa Mutharika has so far not been bothered by the call for democracy the sweeping across the continent and therefore has his peace to worry about the quality of outdoor air in Malawi. Census polling data of the nation reveals people with jobs and who live in actual cities eat a typical diet of fried, salty foods. This eating habits of Malawian result in a higher incidence of flatulence which apparently upset wa Matharika.
