13. Big League Chew

Big League Chew was either banned as part of a general bubble gum ban, or because administrators were concerned that it would promote tobacco use. Related item: candy cigarettes.

These were banned just for the gross-out factor.

Naked dolls mounted atop pencils inevitably led to dirty jokes, but troll toppers were confiscated when more attention was paid to braiding their hair than classwork.
