Global Warming Preventive Measures

Denmark being a world-leader in renewable resources and generally a country where awareness for the realities of global warming is great, we thought it necessary to implement Fart Kontrol on certain stretches of motorway. Excessive farting will result in "green fines".

Be warned.

    I guess then that Farting is against the law in Denmark?

    Not directly, no. It's merely a control.
    But using highly sensitive machinery we test the methane levels of the farts, as well as the toxicity (several scientific factors are in play ... too complicated to discuss here), not to mention the velocity (and the subsequent effect on the nearby wind turbines)
    The control authorities chuck it all into a macro programme in Excel and determine how much you should pay...

    LOL - I love it when words mean one thing in one language and something completely different in another - you should look up "foder" in a Portuguese dictionary and then blush every time you see it pasted on a warehouse in Denmark!

    You jest, but our government proposed a Fart Tax for sheep and cattle farmers as part of our responsibilities under the Kyoto Protocol. It caused a big stink.

    Oh man, that used to be my exit when I studied at DTU. I miss Denmark so much...
