that is guranteed to get every grumpy git like me wound up...


Quote:School dinner staff have been banned from serving triangular flapjacks after one was thrown and hurt a pupil.

Caterers at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, have been told instead to cut their flapjacks into squares or rectangles. The incident, in which a year seven boy was hurt, happened last week.
The school said the "isolated accident" had led to a review of "the texture and shape of the flapjacks" served to students.

And not an EU regulation in sight. Wink

How to cook flapjacks

Can the BBC be prosecuted for aiding and abetting assault?

Now the flapjacks will have four pointy corners to hurt someone instead of just three!

I saw that Mike, I just liked the quoteon the news, that the boy "had to go home for the afternoon."

Had I been the mother I'd have been telling the school what I thought & he'd have been sent back to school and told to grow a pair.

Having been home from work and not very well and got very bored I made flapjacks last week - lets just say they were not a great success and if he had been hit by one of mine it would have taken his head off
I am considering selling the recipe to MOD as I reckon they could be used to armour plate tanks

Someone flipped a flippin' flapjack,
Jack fell down
it broke his crown,
poor lad.

I give up!

In my day, it was the teachers who threw things.....chalk was hard.....but a wooden blackboard rubber was definitely dodgy....if you didn't dodge.

Oh yes, the blackboard rubber, we had a teacher who was fond of lobbing one of them across the class. Deadly accurate as well, if someone looked as if they were asleep he could land it on the desk in front of them with a hell of a bang Smile He taught my Mum as well, but in her day he used to get them round the ear with it.

This is not a joking matter. Flapjack are deadly objects. Flapjacks can kill.

Here are a few little known facts about flapjacks. In the jungle war in Burma, British troops used specially sharpened flapjacks instead of grenades in order to take out Japanese soldiers silently.

In the Battle of Britain, German pilots came to fear 'die Englisch explodierenden flapjackken' designed by Barnes Wallace, which were dropped onto incoming attackers by Spitfires and bounced from bomber to bomber, ripping off their wings.

In the Los Angeles ghettos in the 2008, more young people were murdered with flapjacks modified to fire 9mm rounds than by Glock hand guns.

Not only should three cornered flapjacks be excluded form schools but flapjacks should be banned from the UK altogether. Go to www.flapjacksareevil.com and sign my petition begging the government for emergency legislation to banish the flapjack from our green and pleasant land. If it saves just one life it is worth it!

Of course they should be banned they might contain some healthy produce.

Aha! the flapjack manufacturers have scuppered Lemmy's plans to get them banned. It's a conspiracy of 9/11 proportions, I tells ya!

This story has scuppered my chances of selling my new knife shaped flapjacks. Damn those pesky kids.

If my memory serves me right, quite a lot of my old school meals could have been offensive weapons. If you caught one of the scones to the side of the head, that would be it, lights out!!! Grin
