What Pop Culture Item Was Banned in Your House Growing Up?


Now, Twitter user, @toomuchnick, recently
asked people this hilarious question, what’s the funniest time your parents
banned a piece of pop culture from you? All right, for example, @gracespellman
said quote, my mom wouldn’t let me watch the birth scene in the Spice Girls movie!
>>My gosh.>>So yes, so we fast forwarded through it and
@iamnotwaynegale said, my mom confiscated my Eminem,
Marshall Mathers LP when I was 12. She wrapped it up and
returned it to me on my 21st birthday.>>[APPLAUSE]>>So ladies, what items were not allowed in your household growing up
that were a part of of pop culture?
>>Well, I grew up in a project, so we had nothing, so.
>>[LAUGH]>>Cuz I couldn’t really remember anything.
>>Yeah, yeah, really? Well, I know that, for me, when you grow
up with parents that don’t speak English, they’re fresh off the boat kind of people, they didn’t understand the stuff
than the lingo they were doing. I remember distinctly, when I used
to love myself some Humpty Hump. And when the video came out and
the dance came out and you just learned what your hips can do. [SOUND] My mother, you don’t do that,
[SOUND], why you do that. So I remember,
I had to take all that back.>>So the Humpty Hump was banned from your house.
>>The dance, yes. She doesn’t want anything that looks
like it could do it with a ding dong.>>[LAUGH]>>Okay. I know that when I was growing up
there was like this whole craze, I don’t know the movie like
The Craft had just come out. Do you guys remember that? So many girls were having sleepovers and they had Ouija boards.
>>So that was not allowed in my house.
>>Really?>>There was no way.>>That’s good.>>I was not into it. I know it was trendy! But that was not trendy in my home. My mother was like, absolutely not! You will not be conjuring up any
spirit other than the Holy Spirit up in this house.
>>[APPLAUSE]>>So I did not get to play with any of that stuff, but also even TV shows. I was not allowed to watch the Simpsons
because Bart called his teacher a bitch. And I wasn’t allowed to watch Married
With Children because my mom didn’t like the representation of a marriage. Roseanne, like I wasn’t allowed
to watch any of those shows.>>Well, Mama Nilda and Mama Darlene really need to get together.
>>Yes.>>My mom said the same thing about the Ouija board.
>>Yes.>>Like in the 80s, that was the cool fun game.
>>At sleepovers.>>Yes, we couldn’t even play that. And she said don’t ever bring that
thing in our house cuz you don’t wanna play with them spirits. The only way to belt a spirit that’s all.
>>And then you guys she wouldn’t
let us watch the Smurfs. She said I don’t know she said they’re
blue and they were sort of like demonic or something.
>>Aah.>>I’m like, okay, mom, and then the other thing was Dirty Dancing,
I wanted watch that movie so bad. But I ended up watching it
at my babysitter’s house, and til this day my mom has no idea,
yeah, yeah, Tia and I watched it.>>[CROSSTALK] Remember how awkward it would be when you’re watching a movie
and a scene that’s a little bit more provocative would come on?
>>They would tell you to cover your eyes!
>>So embarassing.>>And how awkward it would be! You would sit there and you almost can’t
watch it because your parents are watching it too, and you’re like my [CROSSTALK]
>>You guys, this December, right, Tamara invited me over to her house. She says, like, we’re gonna have some
hot cocoa, you know how she gets. And we’re gonna watch
Office ChristmasParty.>>My God, that movie was so vulgar.>>But the kids were there, right?
>>Yeah.>>Tamara thinks it’s a family movie. You know?
>>I didn’t know.>>I know it’s not a family movie. But I am going to play with her. Because I am like.
>>She did.>>When the first word came out. [LAUGH]
>>Aiden was right there. You remember the Xerox scene?
>>So they actually show a man’s, his, you know.
>>Yeah, yeah, yeah,>>His ding dong?>>His ding dong. And then-
>>On the movie?
>>Yeah.>>Aiden saw it and he started laughing hysterically, and I was like, no.
>>She lost it.

    Speaking of Movies that had scenes u would've been embarrassed to watch with parents… Soooo my best friend & I along with her Mom & boyfriend at the Theater watching American Beauty, we were like 12! Needless to say… we had NO clue how sexual the movie truly was.
    We begged to watch the movie Set It Off as well… yeah we regretted watching that with parents in the room as well.😨

    I don't think my parents ever put a restriction when watching film or tv except US drama Felicity or during exam weeks. My dad said Fecility taught children to disobey the parents. But sometimes I managed to watch it on tv even though my dad was around. And my family is generally conservative Muslims back then.

    Why do people use the ouji boards for the wrong purposes..this should be banned from the toys aisles. Place the ouji boards with tarot cards & self help books. This is used for only spiritual purposes. Common sense to me. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the ouji board. People are misusing this board all wrong. Whatever u don't want to conquer up u have full control over. Stop blaming the board. U purchasing the item is your responsibility how u determine to use that particular item. Seriously

Oh and I wasn’t allowed to play cards either, only Uno or Go Fish.

For us girls we always have to have wear skirts and no makeup. it's was hard for my sister's especially with no makeup part but for me I wasn't allowed to wear pants and being a tomboy that I am was super hard especially when you're living in Puerto Rico and there's a lot of things you can do but your limited by wearing a skirt
