Weird Forbidden Things Around the World
Ketchup in France
France felt teenagers were using excessive amounts of ketchup to the detriment of traditional French cuisine, which was therefore beginning to lose its originality. So they banned ketchup from school cafeterias. There is, however, one exception to the rule. If students order french fries, they are allowed some ketchup on the side.
Most Baby Names in Denmark
If you live in Denmark and want an original name for your baby, tough luck. You have to choose from the list of 24,000 names approved by the government. In fact, the Danish government banned creative names altogether, and if you have your mind set on a name outside the list, you have to make a special request and ask for permission.
Time Travel in China
Well, not the action of time traveling in itself, we’ve yet to master that one, but the portrayal of time travel. The Chinese government feels that TV shows, movies, and books that focus on time travel tend to show an erroneous image of history, making up myths and false events. Therefore, all media that revolves around time travel has become the target of Chinese censorship.
