Funny Trivia#84

What did the Chinese government ban in 2018?

For years memes derisively comparing Chinese President Xi Jinping to the honey-loving bear Winnie the Pooh have circulated on the internet, so Pooh has periodically been banned. The word for “censorship” was banned to prevent dissent (you can’t be guilty of a crime if nobody can describe it!) For one weekend in 2018, the country’s censors even banned the use of the letter “N” on social media sites, possibly because “N” could be used to refer to the number of terms of office, as in a mathematical equation n > 2.
