Pop Tart Gun: Seven-Year-Old Suspended For Chewing Breakfast Into Pistol

by at . Comments

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.

Pop Tart Gun

"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.

I think it was stupid that they suspended the kid for that but your still a idiot!


I agree that we need to be vigilant around our children, and to protect them from things that are dangerous. But it seems that there is a 'zero tolerance' rule in effect here that MUST have some common sense added in! It may have been appropriate for the teacher to say "Josh, please don't shoot your classmates with your pop tart." 'Nuf said.


What kind of lobotomized idiot is being paid to teach children that thinks a "poptart gun" is worthy of any sort of punishment? It's worthy of a chuckle and a pat on the head. Try not to be force fed all of your opinions from the news and media... you just might turn out like this disgrace of a teacher.


this is horrible. Ridiculous over a poptart gun .
