It has to be said that the current news about corrupt and deviant politicos et al seems to be bloody relentless of late, so , for a change, here’s an example of how America is clamping down on errant behaviour in the young … Student Arrested For Burping .
I’ve heard it said that Britain is only a year or two behind the USA in its stupidity so I fully expect to hear about some poor kid having his arse prosecuted following a particularly fruitful and melodic bout of flatulence.
Christ, at my old school, virtually all the boys in my class would have been hauled before the beak on that charge. Particularly John S who could fart at will and on a good day could imitate a bren gun emptying a full clip ;-)
“Wheel in the guilty party, Sarn’t Major”
“Essah. Efrye efrye efrye efrye. Halt. Efwheel. Tenshun.
Remove your hat in the presence of an hofficer yew orrid little boil”
“..Er .. very good Sarn’t Major. Now what’s the charge?”
“Burpin haudibly while on prade, Sah.
Wivout prior permission and wivout a signed chitty”.
“Gad. Appalling behaviour. Thirty shillings and thirty days ROP, you disgusting little man.
Take him away. Next”
Must get some practice in for my next encounter with HMG bureaucracy …
