Don’t Laugh At The Funny Yanks…

…we aren’t that far behind them:

According to MSNBC, Fox News Baltimore, and a host of other media outlets, the latest case of OMG (oh my gosh, or perhaps it should be called “oh my guns”) an incident involving Josh Welch, a 7-year-old second grade student at Park Elementary School in the Brooklyn Park area of Baltimore, Maryland, made the news on Friday when the boy was suspended from school because his teacher thought that he had chewed his strawberry tart – a piece of pastry – into the shape of a gun during food break-time.

So far, so mind-numbingly hoplophobic.

This, however, is unbearably sad:

Josh reportedly told the media that he could see that his teacher was mad when she saw what he had chewed his tart into, and he knew he was going to be in trouble for it.

Isn’t that one of the saddest things you ever read?

Thereafter, a letter was sent home to other students’ parents explaining that one of the school’s students used food to make an “inappropriate gesture.

And, as David Thompson reports, offering ‘counselling’!

Meanwhile, in good old Blighty

Yeah, I know. As Lynne at ‘Counting Cats’ points out, what a great way to stifle their imaginations, which might lead to dangerous things, like independent thought…

    When my son started nursery there was already a ban on guns and stuff like that being available within the toys etc.

    Of course boys will be boys. They started making guns from plastic bricks and various things.

    The teachers couldn’t really do much about it at the time. I’m sure it would be different now.

    There’s nothing wrong with guns it’s the people who use them that are the problem.

    That’ll be the Police and crims then.

    Makes one almost wish that some arse hole will go into the school and take out the staff room during mid day break.
