Beware - dangerous flapjacks

Yes, you read it right - flapjacks.
Are yours the wrong shape?

Re: Beware - dangerous flapjacks

Where does this insanity end? To avoid the sharp edges they should make them round instead. Oh hang on, then you're in danger of slipping on one on the floor  Roll eyes
Tell you what, lets just ban food completely. We'll all be safer without it  Roll eyes

All writing and drawing instruments will be chained to desks......it's absolutely crazy.
Roll on fully interactive teaching where children don't have to leave the house and everything is done online.....much safer for everyone.

Re: Beware - dangerous flapjacks

But strat.. they'll still have to get up and have breakfast, get dressed, have a bath etc. The H&S brigade will have to come round and assesss your home for suitablilty and if its not right, they'll have to flatten it and make you live in a tent. Only then will you be safe... except you might trip on a tent cable / rope / stake so we'll just have to loose that too  Cheesy

Re: Beware - dangerous flapjacks

I wonder how they slice their pizzas up?
Maybe only non-crusty pizza allowed.

It makes me wonder how people get born these days as birth is a very hazardous time.

Ah but by default those come in a round shape  Wink If the individual dinner lady cuts it into a dangerous shape then its her job that will go if a kit gets injured.

Re: Beware - dangerous flapjacks

But nothing said about how the pupils were able to have a food fight in the first place - where were the teachers.
Back in my day the teachers would have stamped out this sort of thing before it began.

Re: Beware - dangerous flapjacks

By the headline I thought for a moment I had been tricked into viewing a Daily Mail page. Anyway:
Quote
It follows an incident at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, when a boy was hit in the face by a flapjack. ... The school said the "isolated accident" had led to a review of "the texture and shape of the flapjacks" provided.

Now they will be rounded and distinctly ball-like, making it easier for the kids to throw.

Same here and I was an 80's / 90's kid but they didn't hesitate to make you feel like crap if you upset them.

That was my initial thought too.
But that's the way it seems to be now, from the government down. Never mind the cause - treat the symptoms (preferably with a ban).  Roll eyes

So so true unfortunately. The problem is the cause is those at the top and they're not going to punish themselves when they can make the rest of us pick up the pieces.
