I was browing the Parcelforce website in the vain hope that I might find out where the hell my Nintendo DS is when I came across this in the Ireland information section;

"Apart from the general prohibitions, the following are also prohibited: Japanese shaving brushes; items falsely bearing the markings of a Government Department; items which infringe authors' rights; goods made in prison; unseasoned celluloid; stamps and stamp impressions. Euro 48 Prohibitions: all arms and weapons, alcohol in proportions which will result in excise fees; food; gold; human remains; live animals and plants; money; personal effects; precious metals and stones; silver; works of art."

The rest of it makes sense, but Japanese shaving brushes?

Maybe the bristles are made from an endangered animal?

I looked into this peculiarity a while ago and discovered that you might get anthrax from the bristles, apparently!

What the hell is wrong with personal effects? OK if someone owned a particularly large poo collection then I could understand...
