Townsfolk in a Spanish village have been banned from farting, burping and slurping their soup in public in a new charter to combat rude behavior.

These are among 65 indelicacies that have been outlawed by the mayor of La Toba, 113km northeast of Madrid.

Touching genitals, adjusting underwear or picking noses are strict no-no’s, while coughing or yawning without covering mouths and speaking when eating are also barred. Children will get into big trouble with the local authorities if they fail to regularly visit their grandparents.

Mayor Julian Atienza Garcia, of Spain’s United Left Party, drew up the guidelines, which have been signed off by the local council, to combat people being rude in public.

But the guidelines have not been welcomed by everybpdy. Some villagers have called for his resignation after publishing the “courtesy charter” in the village newsletter. One critic posted an online rant saying the next move would be to “insert microchips in everyone’s brain to control them.”

西班牙一個小村莊的村民,因一項對抗粗魯行為的新規範而禁止在公眾場合放屁、打嗝與喝湯出聲。

這些行為包括在拉托巴村長禁止的六十五條品行不端的項目之列。拉托巴位於馬德里東北七十英里(一百一十三公里)處。

觸摸生殖器、調整內衣或挖鼻孔都絕對不准,咳嗽或打呵欠不掩嘴、吃東西時說話也不行。小孩子沒有定期探視祖父母也會被地方當局找麻煩。

西班牙聯合左派黨的賈西亞村長草擬這些指南來對抗公眾禮俗敗壞,當地議會已經簽署同意。

但不是每個人都欣賞這份指南。部分村民在市長於村刊上公布這份「禮儀規範」之後要求他辭職;一名批評家在網路上大罵說,下一步就是「在每個人的大腦裡植入微晶片控制他們」。
