    these weren't exactly banned or prohibited but the trapper-keeper binders were very much frowned upon and "not allowed" in my elementary school.

      Yo-yos were banned in my school..People would bring their yo-yo to school and would be doing tricks all the time..

      I had a Metallica Tshirt that said "Metal Up Your Ass"..And my science teacher made me put a piece of tape on the ass part...I got pissed and told him that the tape adhesive would ruin my shirt when I took it off..So I refused to wear the tape on my shirt and I got sent to the office

        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!

        J


        Where I live uniforms are worn by k-8 and high schoolers get free dress. They tried to put them uniforms, but couldn't. the uniform rules were:

        You had to wear a collared shirt

        No sweatpants

        they wanted you to have matching blue sweaters and windbreakers

        The girls could wear hair ties/ribbons that were only blue and/or white

        The schools were pretty leanant though they use to let girls wear black skirts (instead of navy) and let the kids wear non-collared white shirts sometimes even with pictures on them.

          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 had something like that in our school too but ours was cinnaburst gum. Some dumb ass had the whole school thinking that if you licked the wrapper and stuck it to your skin you could get some kinda high. It was banned because kids were walking around with cinnamon burns on their foreheads, people are stupid.

            We weren't allowed to play Red Rover in elementary school because children were getting hurt.

              I've not heard of a school in the UK that doesn't...!

              I can see why the idea is unthinkable to yanks, but then again, at least no one gets bullied for their clothes!!!

              It's amazing how many people keep the damn thing on way after school has finished for the day. Even I on occasion sat there on the Super Nes at 7pm and suddenly wondered why I hadn't changed. Girls are the worst for it.

                    Here's the funny thing..I went to Catholic school for my entire life, so it was uniforms of one sort or another. (Catholic schooling is big here in New England..I'm not sure if its as popular in other states).

                    Anyhow, the funny thing is that in high school (the late 80's) my senior year, we all had to wear ties with our shirts. the only "dress code" requirement was that we wear grey slacks and a collared shirt. And a tie.

                    So every day I either wore a skinny tie (remeber, its the 80's) or I'd wear a knit tie with the flat bottom. You know, very 80's....in fact just about every picture of me in the 80's I'm wearing a knit tie, and I think I was the only guy to ever wear one in my entire grade. I was an individual you see ;)

                    Anyhow...the deal is, every day on my tie I'd wear a pin. You know..Flair :)
                    Either my original MTV Pin (back in the early MTV days you could send in an envelope and they'd send you a pin), some Judas Priest pins or some other metal band pin.....my rolling stone pin that was given to me by my teacher who got the pin at a Stones concert in the 60's (that was tre'cool), OR...my most worn pin: A metal marijuana leaf.

                    now this is a catholic high school.......and I'd wear my pot leaf pin at least 2 times a week...and I never go tin ttrouble. I never got busted, I never got a DETENTION. I dont get it....its one of lifes great mysteries.

                    Nobody ever said boo about it........and everyone knew I was a head back in those days. I mean, I wasn't tokin up in the boys room between classes.....that was Marlboros only.....but you'd think in a school where girls would get sent home if their skirts were an inch too high or their bras could be seen through their blouses, that a big old 2" pot leaf would get noticed.



                    Mabye they thought it was a maple leaf, and figured i was a big fan of Canada... :)

                        [quote="Rye&qPogs 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?

                        actually pogs started in hawaii where a school teacher saved the caps from milk bottles and gave them to her kids in school to play with. hence the line of pogs that looked exactly like milk bottle caps with the staple in the top of them.

                              bart simpson t-shirts, heavy metal band(especially iron maiden) tshirts, "garbage pail kids" cards and those "dinosaurs attack" cards. black permanent thick magic markers( graffiti tags, i live in NYC). growing up in elementary school in the early 80's was tough for me man. everything that was cool was banned like the next day. then in HS(1990-1994) they banned beepers and those "phillies blunt" logos on any type of clothing.
                              oh, when i was in jr high school( 1988-1990) the pump sneakers were 1st introduced and they were banned in my school, as well as those "triple fat goose" jackets, because high school kids from the subways were jumping the little kids and stealing our stuff. and of course, they were all black. so being one of the only white kids in the school i always wore boring unflashy things so i wouldnt be singled out. thats the way it was in all of my schools. the older black kids always took our stuff. you just learn to adapt and not be flashy, then you're alright. i lost count how many times i was mugged walking to the subway to go home, right across the street from my old HS(Beach Channel in Far Rockaway Queens). there was one of the most dangerouse housing projects in NYC located just before the train station and i HAD to walk by it to get home. the city bus wasnt any better, you get jumped just as easy for your stuff there. and the drivers dont do nothing to help.

                                Cabbage Patch Kids are about the only thing I remember being banned when I was in primary school and they first came out (back when Moms were beating the crap out of each other in stores to make sure they got one :lol: )

                                  Honestly tho, would you let your daughter go out to school (at *ANY AGE* ) with the words JUICY written across her Ass??

                                  I see a bunch of these chubby Puerto Rican girls in the mall, all wearing skin tight clothes and they all have these pants with JUICY or SEXY written across their asses. :)

                                  I laughed aloud...one, because I'm looking at a group of girls who will all have their own kids by the time they are probably 18 years old, and also because I ask what kind of parent lets their kid dress that way.

                                  I mean I wore cutoff fatigue pants and wore my hair long. Big whoop. But today with girls (and I mean GIRLS...like...12 year old girls and younger) walking around in clothes that look like they came from Victorias Secret, you gotta stop and say "Mom, I know you desperately want to be a MILF, but its time to STOP THE INSANITY".

                                        Holy Crap.....I remember making those "popping paper triangles" in like 1978...... :)

                                        You'd walk up behind someone and "WHAM!" have that sucker pop right by their ear.

                                        The worst was when you'd do it, and the thing wouldn't deploy..or pop....and you'd stand there looking like a dork who couldnt fold paper :)

                                        Or, you'd wind up hitting the person on the shoulder cuz your arm would keep goin :D.....

                                          I guarantee the kids in your class didn't invent them....I remember having a kid's physics book where it showed how to make those, demonstrating breaking the sound barrier (which is what makes that noise).
