The Pakistan Telecommunications Authority has recently banned 1,700 “obscene” words and phrases from texts. The move is reportedly part of an effort to curb offensive spam.

But while the list of banned terms includes some that are recognizably offensive, there are others that don’t make much sense, like “athlete’s foot” and “glazed donut.” Ever had the desire to text the phrase “monkey crotch?” If you live in Pakistan, you just can forget it.

Here’s a sample of some of the banned words and phrases:

Athlete’s foot
Deposit
Black out
Drunk
Flatulence
Glazed Donut
Harem
Jesus Christ
Hostage
Murder
Penthouse
Satan
Flogging the dolphin
Monkey crotch
Idiot
Damn
Deeper

Go to hell
Harder
Looser
No sex
Quickie
Fairy
