    Castle View School on Canvey Island, Essex, bans triangular flapjacks on health safety grounds | Mail Online

    shows how slow a news day it is really.

    why couldn't the school do something about pupil behaviour?
  2. They will ban hot food and tea next in case someone throws it on someone else and scalds them.

    When I was just a mere lad I found a bicycle clip in the school playground. Realising that this could produce hours of endless fun as a weapon I kept it for the right time and place.

    After finding that, if you bent it back on its self and released it, it would fly from your hand like an exocet. A couple of well aimed leg shots I thought I would go for a back shot. At the moment of release the receiver of the exocet turned round and got the missile straight in the eye. Cue me being suspended from school pending tests on child to see if I blinded him. Luckily I didn't.

    Flapjacks.......Fucking amateurs.

  12. So if you cut them into squares and rectangles, there is still a corner, but the angle is more obtuse.
    Perhaps they should cut them in circles…….

    Then you could launch them frisbee style.
  13. A circular flapjack still has two corners.

    A sphere is clearly the only safe option.

    Gentleman, you're missing the point.

    Banning triangular flapjacks has kept one council health and safety advisor in work, thus improving the UK's employment figures.

    Next, we will hear that crayoning on things can ruin them and therefore crayons are also to be banned on health and safety grounds.

  15. At what depth does one corner become two?
