    Some say it (*) looked like a gun

    * a piece of pizza shaped like a gun.

    This is from the “you can’t make this stuff up” file (h/t @SteveEgg via @SykesCharlie):

    For the rest of the semester, a Rutherford County elementary student has to eat lunch at the “silent table” for allegedly waving around a slice of pizza some say resembled a gun.

    Nicholas Taylor attends David Youree Elementary School in Smyrna, about 30 miles southeast of Nashville.

    School leaders say the 10-year-old threatened other students at his lunch table with a piece of pizza with bites out of it so it looked like a gun and when asked about it was initially not truthful.

    Nicholas’ mother LeAnn calls her son’s punishment “absolutely ridiculous” saying he was just playing around and never said anything derogatory or anything about shooting anyone.

    “The kid across the table from him said it looked like a gun so he picked it up and started shooting it in the air,” she told Nashville’s News 2 Investigates.

    Well, at least the other kids didn’t say it “looked like a Bible” so his parents don’t have to worry about him being expelled. Be thankful.

    “Zero tolerance” is just another way of saying “zero common sense.”

    10 to 1 neither the principal nor any of the teachers involved in this incident have ever had a real job outside of the school system. This is what happens when people live in a bubble of their own myopic behavior with no external reality checks. If they ever worked with other adults in a commercial setting they would have developed the common sense they clearly lack.

    Yet another reason to abolish government schools.

    It’s so comforting to know that our young minds are being taught by the best and brightest our nation has to offer.

    That said. I fear for the future.

    That kid does have a cheesy smile.

    As he pepperroni’ed his class mates, he was heard screaming, ‘Give Me Mozzarella or Give Me Death

    “The kid across the table from him said it looked like a gun so he picked it up and started shooting it in the air,”

    Great to know that at this school, the Five-Star Chefs are able to create a pizza with strong enough consistancy to wave around like a gun.

    The Pizza Kid, has a hell of a lot of crustiness, I tells ya..
