Lithuania forbids glorifying of bad hygiene

Apparently, Lithuania is so extremely filthy and so many people are worshiping bad hygiene that their parliament has thrown the free speech out the window to forbid glorifying of bad hygiene, homosexuality, gambling, hypnosis, bad food and basically everything not considered good.

IB concludes that the Lithuanian parliament is filthy shit no longer allowed in its own country and we're speculating in where they are going next after 1st of March 2010 when free speech ends in the country.
