    Wouldn't be surpruised if they make kids only eat with their hands incase they scratch themselves with a fork! This is health and saftey gone mad!

    I'm sure the woman on BBC News nearly started laughing at this story!

    But surely school children will just find something else to throw...

    clearly the only real solution is to ban the children.

    Is it me or do square flapjacks have more corners than triangles and are therefore more likely to 'injure' someone

    note; using the term injure lightly

    The angles in a triangle flapjack would be smaller than a square, therefore more pointy so could cause more injuries (those pesky flapjacks, absoloute death trap)

    Catering staff at the school have been told only to serve square or rectangular flapjacks.
    When will they learn that a square is a special case of a rectangle (which is of course a special case of a parallelogram).

    I just had a vision of someone being mugged at a cash point, threatened with a triangle flapjack. They are dangerous.

    The children of Canvey Island should be thinking of their heritage and making flapjacks in the shape of a guitar (didn't Dr Feelgood come from the Island) or that of a caravan, as there are many on the Island.

    Weaponised biscuits, I like it. In the future wars shall not be fought with guns and cluster bombs but flapjacks, Anzac biscuits and chocolate fingers and not to forget those devilish rock cakes.

    It seems to me that the only solution is circular flapjacks. Or porridge.
    Going to have to be porridge. If you cut a circular flapjack in half then you have two semi-circular flapjacks with two pointy corners on each.

    Those fools! A square is two triangles fused as one even more powerful shape! Now with four corners, a potential accuracy increase of 25%! God forbid if a child realises a diagonal separation gives them dual wield triangle flapjack projectiles!

    Though really it seems to be there is more danger in the classroom. If flapjacks are a risk, surely one should ban....

    Paper (paper cut risk)
    Pencils (can be used as a stabbing weapon)
    Scissors (well I think this is obvious)
    Glue (could be used as a weapon...)
    Chairs (powerful projectiles)

    If you cut the semi-circle in half, then cut the rounded edge off the quarter-circle, you'd have a triangle.

    ****.

    Porridge it is!

    They should make the Flapjacks star shaped, maximum accuracy.

    Whoever made that decision is obviously a moron.
