PAKISTAN BANS ‘DONG’ AND 1,700 OTHER WORDS FROM TEXT MESSAGES

The people in charge of Pakistan’s mobile communication networks have ordered a ban of over 1,700 words from being used in text messages. The list of banned words include sexually related words and phrases like ‘Ass Bagger’, ‘Ass Monkey’, ‘Cock Cowboy’ and ‘Dong’, but also some very innocent sounding words such as ‘Athlete’s Foot’, ‘Jesus Christ’, ‘Fairy’ and ‘Glazed Donut’. Glazed donut?! Seriously? I guess glazed donuts could be what many Pakistani people may associate with America, hence the banning.
