A Maryland father claims that his seven-year-old son was suspended from school for chewing a breakfast Pop Tart into what appeared to be a gun.

According to local news reports, the child was suspended for two days.

"It was already a rectangle and I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top and it kind of looked like a gun but it wasn't," 7-year-old Josh Welch said.

Josh admits trying to create a masterpiece out of the breakfast pastry.

"All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but it didn't look like a mountain really," Josh said. "[My teacher] was pretty mad ... I think I was in big trouble."

It wasn't just for chewing it into a weapon ... he brandished it as well.

Josh's dad admits his son said he made "bang bang" noises while holding the Pop Tart, which was likely not looked highly upon by his instructor.

School officials have not commented, citing privacy concerns.

Boys will be boys, as they say, especially in second grade... but what if the dad opted to whip up a nice berry cobbler recipe for breakfast instead?

No bang-bang noises. Just saying.
