Of all things

We couldn't believe our ears when we heard this story last night: A seven-year-old boy in Baltimore was suspended from school for two days for biting his Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun.

We were just talking about this this morning. I'm really glad my kids are old enough (I hope!) to know better than to act like kids at school.

Here are a few suggestions:

Require criminal background checks for all Pop Tart sales

Increase government spending for training police officers, first responders and school officials on how to respond to Pop Tarts

Increase penalties for people who pass background checks for purchasing Pop Tarts, but buy Pop Tarts for someone who has not passed the background check.

Ban the possession of armor piercing Pop Tarts

Limit the sale of icing on Pop Tarts

You've got to nip this kind of thing in the bud. Next he'll be biting into the shape of a grenade.

At my middle schooler's science fair last week, one of the student experiments was whether the impact profiles of bullets of a given caliber were different based on the composition of the bullet (he shot through paper, they weren't).  The school systems here in Montana have a different reaction to guns than those in urban areas or back east.

Alrighty - Another ringing endorsement for the public school system.

What flavor was the PopTart? It matters.

If you look at it from the point of view of those who make and enforce these kinds of rules it makes sense. But you have to see it their way.

I'll give you my Pop Tart when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.

The only way to stop a bad guy with a Pop Tart is a good guy with a Pop Tart.

Zero tolerance = no common sense.

It is a scandal and an outrage that Pop Tarts of any shape would be allowed in a public school.

And what's all this about banning a salt rifle? What's next, pepper spray?

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Then maybe you won't notice all the other ways we're getting hosed.

And "Pop", say, that sounds like a gun. Better change the name to "Cozy Tarts." Mmmmm, maybe not . . .

His crime was that he didn't use a Rainbow Poptart..

Progressives are Superior and all knowing. NEVER question your Superiors.

Notice the principal and the teacher?
Don't geld the poor kids.
