Please don't let our NYC Mayor find out about this.
Three letter are all that is need for this response:
I suggest that a flapjack monitor be instated for every school with the authority to regulate and, if necessary, confiscate any flapjack that does not conform the the National Flapjack Shape Regulation Authority guidelines. Perhaps some enterprising young person can produce flapjack cutters or forms which conform to these regulations, assuming production can keep up to the pace of the changes that will inevitably ensue.
Time to stock up on triangular flapjacks.
The comments over there are funny.
Flapjack free zones are the only solution.
but the corners are like made of pancakes. How can they injure anyone
In the UK, flapjacks are oatbars.
They seem somewhat like rice krispie treats based on the image in the article.
I love how triangles are bad but squares are okay.
As if squares don't have corners.
SMH @ this
Trust me, they are baked oats and golden syrup. Its the sugar that makes them hard when they are baked too long. They should be slightly soft but not crumbly.
Here is a recipe... http://britishfood.about.com/od/eorecipes/r/flapjack.htm
A triangle's corners are pointier, though. You could have a child's eye out with them!
It's sausages being thrown around the canteen that are the real problem, though – not flapjacks
I've tasted canteen sausages, I'd rather throw one than eat it.
Oh I trust you. I was just pointing out an analogue that others might be familiar with.
Its similar in looks but the flapjack is heavier and thus hits with greater force. If baked long enough, the rigidity is much greater than a rice crispy square as well so it won't crumble on impact. I would suspect that the rice crispy square has more shock absorbing capability as well. I may have to do some baking followed by tests.
I believe very sincerely that this is the single most ridiculous headline I've ever seen attached to a news story anywhere.
Then I tried to read the story, and it seems like the journalist (?) who wrote it actually takes him/herself seriously.
I believe here (well Canada at least) those are called oat bars they are generally square or rectangular here and while normally pretty soft I can see a dry one hurting if taking an edge to the eye. Around here the term flapjacks is mostly used (more often by Americans) as another name for pancake.
Rather than concerning myself with the shape of the confectionery, I'd be more interested in punishing the inappropriate behaviour of the child who threw said object... and finding out why are the children given such poorly made oat bars that using them as throwing weapons is better than eating them!
Surely, surely, this origin of this story is Onion News? Right? Right?
(Where's the weeping smiley?)
The only thing that stops a bad guy with a flapjack is a good guy with a flapjack.
Is no one else disturbed by the fact that Hitler did the exact same thing?
No, the journalist is laughing with you, that's why he included the last three grafs.
