Do you give flapjacks of all shapes and sizes your full backing?

    I most certainly do, and I'm not alone:

    School bans triangle shaped flapjacks.

    Not only do they have my full backing, but I stand shoulder to shoulder with flapjacks of all shapes and sizes that contain blueberries (which are rather yummy and go well with a nice cup of coffee).

    Pathetic twitter bollocks and petition to follow.

    I saw this when I flicked through the sun as I waited for my click and collect in waitrose. It seems the BBC now get their reports from the same place.

    To me it seem more sensible to ban the throwing of baked goods, rather than the baked goods themselves!

    A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive said: "We often come across half-baked decisions taken in the name of health and safety, but this one takes the biscuit.

    Amazing.

    It reads like an April Fools piece, printed early by accident.

    Anyway, they banned triangular flapjacks in Australia and the instances of flapjack related injury didn't go down.

    Caught this on the BBC news at 6 this evening and the newsreader looked like they had died a little inside having to read it out.

    Fairly sure I could do some damage with a square flapjack.

    It's not flapjacks that kill people, it's the lunatics who use flapjacks irresponsibly.

    I blame the parents.

    If I ran the country, I'd simply say this:

    Use your triangular flapjacks as a projectile weapon, and lose your benefits.

    I think banning triangular flapjacks doesn't go far enough. Square and rectangular flapjacks still have corners. I think they should only allow circular baked goods.

    Why stop at baked goods? Do you know how much damage can be done with McDonald's chips? You never see anyone getting attacked by a pizza do you?

    I could easily kill a small child with an ice cream cone.

    The pre-packed sandwich industry is going to be in full blown panic tomorrow morning.

    No one throws Dairylea around, as only poor people eat it.

    I'm gonna get a load of square and rectangular flapjacks and cut them in half diagonally. Double the ammo, mini ninja projectiles.

    Didn't see that coming, ya bastids!

    They do.

    For anyone who remains under any illusions about how journalism works in Britain, read Flat Earth News. Bit of an eye opener.

    I still have the scars from when someone threw a stale Danish Pastry at my face. It opened a 2 inch gash on my face and it got all infected by the raisins and icing. This kind of thing is no laughing matter, and they've taken the right steps here.

    Oh by the way, a freshly microwaved frozen deep dish individual serving pizza is very effective when used like a rudimentary form of napalm. Pie-face someone with one fresh out of the microwave and you're talking serious burns. Possible reconstructive plastic surgery.

    I don't think people think about the dangers of weaponised convenience foods.

    Ooh, nasty. Did they give you a course of antipiotics?
