    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.

    School leaders can prevent these things from happening again by simply cutting off the boys fingers. Isn’t that their eventual goal – just like the Taliban leaders do.

    I guess the kid should not have screamed “Allah Anchovies” as he poinred his lethal weapon. This is what happens with zero tolerance insipid bureaucratic legalisms. It has been our leftwing teachers goals to unilaterally disarm the country for the past 40 years and to criminalize and ostracize anyone holding and expressing even the mildest traditional values. This is just another episode in the antiamerican culture wars.

    Reminds me of the movie, “Idiocracy”. But what adjectives can one use to describe such educated fools?

    Granted, I’m half a century removed from elementary school, but as I recall the lunch room pizza was, in fact, potentially lethal.

    Thank God there were no olives (bullets) on the pizza.

      School Superintendent:

      “The fact that the alleged pizza-shaped weapon in question was not loaded with olives at the time of the alleged incident does not mitigate the seriousness of the alleged actions of the alleged student in question…”
