Be happy you live in America.

According to, you get to enjoy freedoms that now everyone in the world can.  Here are some of the more obscure bans around the world:

1.  In France, ketchup is banned from schools.  (I wonder what they put on their “French” fries?)

2. It is illegal in Iran to have a mullet.  (They are a ‘decadent’ western men’s hairstyle… and I can’t say that I disagree).

3. Bangladesh has a total ban on plastic bags.

4. In Singapore, you need to have a prescription to chew gum (and yes… even the prescription gum is sugarless)

5.  Danish parents have to chose from a list of 7000 approved baby names when naming their newborn.  Anything that is not on the list must seek state church approval.
