While the various other taboos (not involving pictures) that have come 
up are all interesting, what I am looking for is rather more specific:

• A taboo involving exactly three as opposed to fewer or more than three 
— not a taboo involving three or more as opposed to two

• A taboo involving cardinal three as opposed to other cardinal numerals 
— not a taboo involving the ordinal third as opposed to other ordinal
