After his widely publicized nationwide ban on smoking, health minister Anbumani Ramadoss has now decided to go after another so-called evil, 'Passive Drinking'. “Science has established that passive drinking is even more harmful than drinking, so we are calling for a complete ban on drinking in public places, such as parks, railway stations, pubs and bars.”, said Dr.Ramadoss, simultaneously demonstrating his compassionate nature by forcibly using his stethoscope on bemused bystanders.
When someone questioned the logic behind banning drinking from pubs and bars, the minister was quick with his reply. “ Because that's where it happens the most. What is the point of banning drinking in places like hospitals or places of worship, where it doesn't happen anyway?”, he asked, quite sensibly. “Hey, don't I look a bit like a young verion of that actor Suman?”, he asked suddenly, changing the subject with the dexterity of a practiced surgeon.
The minister also announced that the next initiative would be some sort of ban against those pesky people who claim to be 'high on life'.
