Shoot the Pop Tarts!

A school system suspended a seven year-old boy for two days because (do not have food in your mouth while reading this) the seven year old boy chewed on a pop tart and gnawed it into the shape of a gun and then played with his pop tart as if it were a gun.

While I am someone who thinks that pop tarts can be lethal, this is ridiculous. 

I think kids who bring a gun to school should be suspended (or expelled). I think kids who assault someone by throwing food at them should be suspended. I think children who use their imagination in playing should be encouraged and cherished. A teachable moment was overrun by overreaction and stupidity.

Oh and I think the person who gave the kid pop tarts and told him it was a good snack, should be beaten. 

My two cents.

Is it too much to ask to simply forever ban guns and Pop-Tarts for everyone everywhere? Oh, it is? Ummm... okay. Carry on!

ah, but the boy is not likely an overeater, else he would have eaten it without stopping. Just saying.
