14 Things That Should Be Banned Instead Of Books

Hey banning enthusiasts, it’s time to evaluate your priorities. There’s no need to pick on our beautiful books while other monstrosities are free to roam about.
This Banned Books Week let’s redirect our attention to what we all agree could be banned in lieu of books. Then, celebrate your freedom to read!

Think of how many friendships could be saved if we ended the fight for the last slice.

3. Paper cuts

Truly, paper cuts are life’s most pestering injuries.


4. The final season of LOST.

But seriously, why is there a polar bear on the island?
