Words you can’t say in Iran

For example, “pizza” and “cabin.” Story here.

I cannot find a comprehensive list of banned word substitutes, but in the spirit of “pizza” and “cabin”, I offer the following suggestions for inclusion:

“Cat’s paw” will become “feline digitation.”

“Terrorist” will become “Bomb Buddy.”

Uranium Hexafluoride” will become “toothpaste.”

“Syrian” will become “lackey.”

“Head office” will require a legal opinion before it can be used. Oh, sorry that’s a Quebec law.
