      I remember when I was in 1st or 2nd grade and they kicked this kid (Ned) out of school for wearing a t shirt with a marijuana leaf on it ...at the time I was like 6 and I didn't know what that was...I always thought that his parents should have been the ones to get in trouble I mean come on the kids was 7 at the oldest who the hell bought him the shirt.

      Also I remember that Garbagepail kids were a big no no at school.
      and later shirts with Bart on them that said "eat my shorts"

        See, back when I was in highschool, those were still okay. I remember when they made the announcement that no students are allowed to have rifles in their gunracks in the parking lot. That's what my town USED to be like, before the swarm of rich Californian locusts took it over and destroyed it. :x

            We were even banned from wearing certain colors of Jordan Brand gym shoes (sneakers) in H.S.!!! WTF?
            Also banned from wearing Logoed clothing in H.S.

              The school my kids go to has a "harvest party" insted of Halloween it's a clever way to get around the fact that they can't do Halloween...funny lil story, I was watching the news last night and they had a clip of kids from a local Catholic school (the same one I went to) and they got to dress up for halloween and they even called it a halloween party...public schools can't...go figure....just goes to show that even the pope likes to dress up for Halloween :?

                One time when I was a sophomore I went to school in a Green Day t-shirt that had a kid holding a brain and in red lettering said "eat your parents". I made it a little over half the day when one of the disciplinarians stopped in the hall on my way to class and told me I had to take it off or turn it inside out. Being the rebel and comedian that I am, I took it off right then and there and threw it at him and started walking down the hall in my bra. I got a couple days of in-house suspension but the shocked look on his face and the others around was PRICELESS!!!


                Awesome, Kitty!

                Yes, back in the early to mid-nineties, lots of stuff was getting banned. Other than (gods help me) POGs, there was also the new cult favorite South Park t-shirts, and CRAVE, this sugar powder stuff that came in plastic test tubes, and was basically seen as an adolescent drug.

                  Pogs were popular back in my school days and eventually got banned since they uh... promoted gambling. I'm almost sure Pogs (and the 'pogman';) was a UK thing... anybody remember these?

                        only bans in my schools were clothing that exposed too much, and many still snuck by.

                          Lets see, when I last went to school they had banned:

                          Shirts from sites like tshirtsthatsuck.com
                          Book binders
                          Backpacks in class
                          Earrings bigger than a 12 gauge (pissed me off, considering my smallest piercing is an 8 gauge)
                          Any piercing other than an earring
                          ANY electronic device in class. (With the exception of medical items)
                          Tattoo's. Any tattoo that was visible had to be covered in an approved method (not an item, but still stupid)
                          Wallet chains
                          Chokers
                          Spiked braclets
                          Skateboards
                          Overcoats
                          Hats of any kind (which was rediculus, this one girl was in chemo and wasn't allowed to wear a hat)

                          There was a bunch more things, but I can't think of them right now.

                            GPK stickers were banned in my school, not for the content but because of a rumour; people thought they contained a drug which would get into the bloodstream by simple skin contact :?

                                We basically had to go to our lockers every class, drop our stuff off, get what we needed for the next class, and go. And we wrote in spiral notebooks.

                                  I already metioned this in the bake sale forum, but I'll put it again. I heard that they banned home made goodies. :roll:

                                    It's funny that clothing figures so highly on everyone's 'banned' list. Here in blighty that's not an issue...

                                    I sometimes forget that school uniform isn't a global requirement...

                                    But in the way that people strive for individuality, most would try and change things and the 'banning' would start.

                                    In the UK this usually involved:

                                    Attempting to wear trainers with unifom

                                    Leaving the tie off (a big no no) or hiding it inside your shirt.

                                    Having too big a knot in the tie!

                                    Rolling up jumper or shirt sleeves.

                                    Tying the jumper around your waist.

                                    Girls were the worst for f**king with the code of conduct. Skirt length, bracelets, dog collars (?!) excess make up and various other things would get them into trouble!!

                                    Of course there was the odd one day here and there where kids could wear their own clothes (£1charity donation required!) and this was where the p*ss taking would really come in!

                                      Actually, POGs originally came from the US state of Hawaii. "POG" is short for 'Passion fruit, Orange and Guava juice'....the original POG game was played with the paper caps from the juice bottles.

                                          In high school we used to have a "student auction" every year for charity. They banned that because they said it "promoted slavery".


                                          Oh my gosh, that happened to us too! I remember reading about it in the local paper. They couldn't raise enough money that year because of it. I mean, they're still enxchanging money for services, what's the big deal?

                                          I remember them banning yo-yo's, pogs, pokemon, slap bracelets, beanie babies, name buckles (who would take off their belt during a fight? You need to keep your pants up some how!), spaghetti straps (only if they showed the bra strap), cell phones when only teachers had them... and laser pens! That was a BIG ban.

                                          I also remember them stupidly enforcing a dress code my senior year that was about 20 years old. They cracked down on hats and baggy pants! And they wouldn't allow shorts and skirts that were such and such long... of course they realized that the volleyball uniforms didn't meet that criteria. :lol:
