      That is so Islamic of him. A jealous wife and his wayward sports car.

    Typical government solution. Focus on flatulence so we overlook the shit all around us.

    I can understand about the gas situation, but really, how does his size keep him from pushing papers around, or doing any other non-physical activities?
    What’s next? They’re going to regulate me when my hair color starts growing out, exposing my gray har?
    Get a grip, government, you don’t have the right to regulate these things and we are going to rebel at some point.
    The government has already lost credibility with the people and, as in any country, too much oppression doesn’t end well.
