Britain was the country which kept calm and carried on during the Blitz, and thought it a mere trifle when Doodlebugs and V2 ballistic missiles flew overhead before turning populated housing estates into huge craters.

Now, a mere 70 years later, we've become terrified of triangular-shaped flapjacks.

I'd love to visit there someday, but my God, how people put up with this crap is beyond me.

Flapjacks don't hurt people, people hurt people.

Britain, you've gone mad, first you chase after some poor mother for 4 weeks for joking about egging a polie to a friend on facebook, now this.  What is going on?

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

"The real issue isn't what shape the flapjacks are, but the fact that pupils are throwing them at each other - and that's a matter of discipline, and has got nothing to do with health and safety as we know it."

Exactly.

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

I hope they don't serve those in prisons over there. The prisoners are likely to start shanking each other with them. :whistle:

The school might ban triangle shaped chocolate Toblerones next.

Besides being unhealthy, Doritos (having a triangle shape) will also be doomed.

They missed a good headline: "What's All the Flap About?" (or perhaps that saying is just an Americanism?)

However, it is true that when students throw things, they do tend to aim at the face.

One's reality is another's nightmare.

Goodness you're right! We'd better all take up arms, and get back our right to triangular flapjack American style...

Might as well ban triangle shapes used in maths. Or just ban every shaped object

That's it. As the faux head of the Department of Education I hereby ban all schools.
They are just much too dangerous of an environment.
