    Well then we should ban Maryland because it too looks like a gun.

    They're thinking of the children. Thinking of demonizing guns to the extent that children fear and are against them. You know, gettin' those votes locked in early.

    I remember I used to draw guns in elementary school... I would usually invent Alien guns from the future and draw them. I would probably get in BIG trouble if it were now.
    Oh and I also remember I made a mini Bow and arrow out of a paper clip and a bit of string that I torn off my shirt. I shot little arrows of rolled up paper... I would have been expelled for good.
    oh and don't get me started on what we called hornets... a rubber band and a bent folded up piece of paper and launched at each other with high velocity... they could hurt pretty bad.

    Joshua's father says it's ridiculous since no one was threatened or harmed by the pastry. A letter will be going home to all students of Park Elementary School this afternoon. School officials declined to comment due to privacy issues.
    Even if he intentionally bit it into a perfect scaled down version of an AK 47 (with sprinkles), this would still be idiotic. I remember going to the principals office a handful of times. It sucks. I really do feel sorry for the kid.

    This is an example (it appears) of parents NOT FOLLOWING THRU. Getting something on TV of itself doesn't nothing without following thru. The parents should WIDELY circulate they and everyone else who thinks this is wrong to be at the next public school board meeting - along with a petition and copy already provided to the school board calling for candidates to run against every school board member that does not vote to:

    1. Transfer or fire the principal after a suspension.
    2. Give the dangerously over-reactive teacher termination notice.
    3. Remove the suspension from the boy's record
    4. Issue a written apology to the boy and his parents.

    Otherwise, nothing will change and that child-abuse will continue at that school. It was CHILD ABUSE to suspend that boy.

    I didn't know the reference either, yet I thought it was quite funny. 'Pop Tart gun', that's funny all by itself or any way ya cut it.

    That's just silly.

    Something tells me this had little to do with a pop-tart gun and more to do with a spider in the teacher's desk and she knew who put it there but couldn't prove it.

    Potato guns can put your eye out!
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.
