    Pun control: China bans wordplay

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 10:28 am

    China must be running out of things to ban. They’ve now banned any play on words in the media.

    The Chinese language is filled with puns and other humorous wordplay, but the country’s print and broadcast watchdog does not believe it has a place in the newsroom.

    The watchdog has panned wordplay for the media citing that it breaches the law on spoken and written Chinese and if they promote puns, it will make teaching China’s cultural heritage harder and could mislead the public, including children, The Guardian reports.

    Those puns might make it harder to enforce group think, and maintain control of all thought by the government. What a great place to live.
