• From talking in the hallways to clapping
at school assemblies, the Planet Dolan crew re-enact some of the best true stories from
our subreddit about the dumbest things our schools have ever banned. I’m Doopie and today I’ll be your narrator. Number 10 was submitted by Tom_Odayama Danger
Dolan Being in a Catholic school, Dolan was in 5th
grade, and his sister was in 7th grade when they learned of the silly things that were
banned. There were usual things that were banned like
Beyblades cards and hand held games… but the dumbest thing to have been banned happened
one winter from the new principal at the time. There was plenty of snow, and many of the
kids liked to make snow forts and snowmen, but there were a good amount of troublemakers
who would have snowball fights on the school grounds. So, the new principal had taken action one
day and turned on the speakers to talk to the school. “It has come to my attention that there have
been many incidents involving snow. Therefore, there are going to be some changes. There will be no more playing with snow, touching
of snow, or even standing on snow. I hope that our school grounds will be a safer
place everyone while at school.” STANDING ON SNOW?!? Dolan doesn’t know how someone bans standing
on snow during recess, WHEN THE WHOLE GROUNDS ARE NEVER SHOVELED??? Needless to say, the walk home from school
with his sister was full of laughter at how stupid it sounded. Number 9 was submitted by Cape_Industries
Snewpee One time when Snewpee was in 3rd grade, there
was a ban on sneezing. At the time, there was a large amount of dust
in the school so whenever the teacher called on her, Snewpee would sneeze three times and
would get yelled at. They would ask her to leave, but she would
tell them to clean the school better because there is a TON of dust just sitting on the
desks and nothing is done about it. In the end, Snewpee left the school and, in
the next school year, the school was closed due to health code violations. Number 8 was submitted by AnonymousRed_ Tolop
Once when Tolop was at school he decided to eat his sweet snacks only. He went and sat on a bench in the field and,
after opening his lunch, he pulled out 10 different sweets. When he started eating them, a teacher strolled
by and looked over his shoulder. She saw the 4 empty rappers and looked at
the 6 other sweets and said to him, “Haven’t you read the new rule in the school diary?” Then she took all his sweets and dumped them
in the bin. Tolop was so in shock that he went up to the
school principal and asked him about it. All he did was say, “I’m sorry but many parents
are blaming us for tooth decay for selling sweets and allowing them at the school.” He walked away, so Tolop decided not to get
angry but to get even. He went home and planned his revenge. He made 12 batches of cupcakes but without
the sugar and salt. He put a cupcake on almost every teacher’s
desk with a little note on the bottom of the cupcake paper saying, “Since sweets are
banned, I made all the teachers SUGARLESS cupcakes so they aren’t sweets anymore. ENJOY!” The ban was lifted, and the principal gave
Tolop a detention but also thanked him. Number 7 was submitted by VolitantTooth MKyleM
Just a few years ago, when MKyleM was in his senior year of high school, the school started
to really crack down on security, following every last law and rule there was. This included the laws of stalking of a minor. In the state where he grew up, it is illegal
to take a picture of a person younger than 18 without their direct consent. At certain times of the day, like lunch, students
could have their phones out. But as soon as these rules came into play,
they had teachers monitoring them at all times. People caught using the camera app, even if
accidental, were given detention and even – occasionally – suspended. Cameras were confiscated immediately, and
their memories were wiped. The school photography class was shut down
– not that bad for a normal school, but this was a school well-renowned around the
country for its art program. The strange thing is, it is perfectly legal
to take a picture of a minor without consent, as long as you yourself are a minor, which
almost everyone in the school was. Number 6 was submitted by Fredistair_Alcatraz
Emojie When Emojie was about to leave his primary
school, the principal became meaner and unfair. He made a rule that the students couldn’t
say anything to censor out a swear word like fork or shoot. Emojie thought this was a bit unfair, so he
went and talked to the principal. “We should be allowed to say ‘fork’ if we
get hurt but not if we are talking about sex”, Emojie said. Almost everyone in his year level agreed with
him. The principal said that it was a stupid idea,
so Emojie said, “Go fork yourself,” and left the office. To this day, he’s still proud of that. Number 5 was submitted by Ermack-Valken Dolan’s
Brother Dolan’s Brother went to a charter school
for most of his young life, so there were lots of things banned from the get-go. When he was in 9th grade, the school suddenly
started getting stricter. They enforced a rule banning everyone from
TALKING IN THE HALLWAYS between classes. Unfortunately, it was extremely easy to enforce
because the school was only one floor and had only one hallway spanning the length of
the building. They gave some stupid excuse like, “Students
should be on their best behavior during school hours.” As if they thought taking away their only
time to socialize, besides lunch time, would make them behave better. You can probably guess why mostly every student
became a jerk after that. Number 4 was submitted by TheAuCalledMeh Hellbent
Hellbent’s middle school banned the red pen. If a red pen was used, students would get
suspended from school. It all started with one kid, Nixxiom, telling
his parents that he did not like the red pen marks that the teachers did on their tests
or class work. So one day the parents went to the school
and talked to the teachers and the principal about the red pens. The next day, red pens were banned. No one, not even the teachers, could use a
red pen. Instead, everyone had to use a black or blue
pen. Number 3 was submitted by BeverageGaming Andiemations
Andiemations was in 3rd grade when a stupid new principal entered her school. Now everyone thinks a new principal should
be cool and stuff, but this one sucked. She literally took away clapping at assemblies
because she said, “it was too loud”. Everyone had to do this stupid jazz hand thing. Probably the worst, though, is that she took
away the game ‘tag’. Andie was so mad, and literally all they did
was throw balls at each other from that day forward. But then they got a new principal who was
a guy and was so swag. Andie and the other students can do whatever
they want now. Number 2 was submitted by TigerFlame703 Legna
So in Legna’s middle school, hugs and high fives were banned. The reason was because it would make other
people feel like they were not included. In Legna’s opinion, it was the dumbest thing
he has ever heard because it sounded like they were trying to say that if you hug one
person, you had to hug everyone else… whether you knew them or not. Number 1 – What was the dumbest thing my
school ever banned? Huge thanks for the folks over on our Planet
Dolan subreddit for submitting their stories. We have another question for you: “What’s
the weirdest job you ever got paid to do?” Let us know in the reddit page linked below
and you might be featured in a future countdown.

  11. I wasnt allowed to stand or touch snow at school… or clap at assembellys……. makeing ANY PHYSICAL CONTACT WITH OTHERS WAS BANNED TOO im starting to realize how stupid schools can be espellishy that one time they install a spy virus on everyones computer

  12. in my old elementary school my teachers were against boys. there were only 3 boy teachers in my school. The female teachers demanded that girls and boys were not allowed to play with each other because of how overprotective and unfair the female teachers were. I remember one time during writing class these girls were next to a girl helper teacher inserting images into google documents. So i did the same. BUT NO boys aren't allowed to do that me and my friend got yelled at. And the 2 stupidest ones i am furious about.The 2nd worst time my friend lightly tapped a girl on the head with a book maybe as light as a poke because the girl was his friend. The girl burst out in tears and my friend got detention. but when i get absolutely smashed over the head with a hard cover book by a girl i'm told to walk it off. And in 5th grade i was one of the smartest kids in my school i got several math awards along with the other smart kids. So me being smart the teacher expects me to be able to do anything. And this one girl in my class was so stupid that the helper teacher I was talking about earlier did her work for her. But when i need help on this really hard question I immediately get denied because she is "working" with the dumb girl. Sorry about how long this was i just needed to get this out of my system. Ms.Wood if your reading this I hate you.

  13. If you guys do another video like this the dumbest rule in my school was not being able to wear any form of head wear, not just hats and hoodies but head bans bows etc, it was because the teachers even the stupid principle said and I quote, "disrespectful to the American flag" I was like wtf, they would give us warnings and even threaten to take our jackets or sweatshirts if we didn't take it off

    I also apologize if this is not where I submit stories I'm new to this channel
    But keep making funny vids guys

  14. Blue and black pen rule?"no red pens" 4 both teachers and students. For students, mainly only black and blue are allowed. Reasons 4 the ban of red pen? Negativity.

  15. I remember in my 5 grade my teacher told told some boys in my class they weren't slowed to fist bump or even high five and fight spinners were not allowed😠 all because one kid dropped there's on acident

  16. At my friends old school you where not allowed to talk about movies because taking about movies where to distracting

  17. My reading is fixing to ban mechanical pencils and sharpeners. Instead of mechanical pencils, we need to use their own . Instead of sharpening, There are two green boxes. One with broken ones and the other with sharpened ones. We need to put the broken pencil in the box and grab a sharp pencil.

  18. In my school I went to ask for a fork because their was no metal forks so I asked for a plastic fork and the lunch lady said no so I went to poot my tray down and I went back up and said well you did not say it was for your lunch and I was like OMG wer in a lunch hall but I did not say it because I wood get in trouble lol
