Sure, perhaps this case has stronger legs to stand on than the recent case with the finger-gun suspension. After all, as a commenter on the story points out, a Pop-Tart can be dangerous. Why, you might eat it.
When I initially heard about the threatening Pop-Tart, it made sense. I knew that the Let’s Move/Let’s Eradicate Obesity/Let’s Protect the Children From the Processed Sugars by Circling the Kale Wagons campaign was entering a new phase, but I didn’t realize that they were suspending kids for waving Pop-Tarts menacingly in your general direction. What, I wondered, were they going to do to the guy who brings cupcakes for his birthday? No doubt he’d be expelled!
It turned out that the Pop-Tart was menacing only for its shape, not for its contents. But give it time. At the rate things are turning absurd, that’s hardly a stretch.
