School Offers “Counseling” For Those Traumatized By Pastry Gun


There was an incident that we reported on recently involving a “pastry gun” that got a 2nd grader suspended. It was either a pop tart or a toaster strudel that Josh Welch was eating when he decided he wanted to make it in the shape of a mountain. In his words, “It was already a rectangle. I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top of it and kind of looked like a gun,” he said. “But it wasn’t.”

The teacher was the one that made a mountain out of a molehill by accusing the kid of creating a gun. So, the child was suspended for 2 days, and all the students got letters sent home to inform their parents of the “incident.”

In part, the letter read:

“I am writing to let you know about an incident that occurred this morning in one of our classrooms and encourage you to discuss this matter with your child in a manner you deem most appropriate. During breakfast this morning, one of our students used food to make inappropriate gestures that disrupted the class. While no physical threats were made and no one [was]harmed, the student had to be removed from the classroom…”
