A Look at Crazy U.S. Laws as Malawi Seeks to Ban Public Farting


LILONGWE, Malawi —- Malicious, Malawian farters take heed, President Bingu wa Mutharika’s administration is proposing laws to criminalize public flatulation that is considered offensive or insulting to women’s modesty, according to Afrik.com, Paris.

The proposed law, to be introduced to the incoming parliament states, citizens “passing gas” with the intention to “mold responsible and disciple citizens,” “insulting the modesty of a woman,” “disturbing religious assemblies” and trespassing on burial places would face imposed penalties.

Opposition leader John Tembo said the bill, which would also impose penalties on people posing as fortune tellers, would create a “kangaroo-like court” that would “not be ideal for a democracy.”

Just for fun let’s explore some crazy laws on the books right here in the good old U.S.

For Example, did you know in Florida it is illegal for an unmarried woman to parachute on a Sunday? Break this law and you risk arrest, fine, and/or jail.

Florida’s men may not be seen publicly wearing a strapless gown of any kind. So fellas take off the dress and slip into a bikini instead.

This next law from the great state of California is perhaps the funniest law on the books. Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship. There is absolutely no cause to entertain drunks, children or board parishioners by watching hot animal on animal love.

In Brookfield Wisconsin tattooing is illegal, unless it is done for medical purposes. What medical purpose could result in getting a tattoo?

Finally, in New York, women may go topless in public, providing it is not being used as a business. There may be snow on the ground but New York ladies are free to go au natural.
