A seven-year-old boy was suspended from school on Thursday after biting his breakfast pastry into a shape that his teacher thought looked like a gun.

Josh Welch, a second-grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, said he was trying to nibble his strawberry snack into a mountain.

But when his teacher saw what he had done, the boy says she got 'pretty mad' and he knew he was 'in big trouble.' Josh 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 kinda looked like a gun but it wasn't.





Innocent: Josh, who suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and enjoys art classes, said he was trying to shape the tart in a mountain

'All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn't look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun kinda,' the seven-year-old recalled.

The boy's dad found the incident ridiculous. 'I would almost call it insanity. I mean with all the potential issues that could be dealt with at school, real threats, bullies, whatever the real issue is, it's a pastry.., Ya know?' he said.

The school refused to comment due to privacy issues. The boy's father said the school claimed Josh had said 'Bang! Bang!' while holding the pastry, according to Fox News.


Josh denies that his food art was ever meant to be a gun.

Well if it was High Capacity Pop Tart, I can understand. But those were banned long ago and are only available on the Black Market.

That does not tell the whole story.

Read deeper and you will find out the kid threw the pastry at another child. That made it an assault pastry.

They were TRYING to do the parents and the child a favor.

They were TELLING them how incompetent and negligent the public school system has become and the child will be MUCH better off if he got educated outside the government school system.

The future of QUALITY education is home schooling and PRIVATE education that operates without the crammed down idiocy of government indoctrination.

If that is the case then pastries will have to be put on the "ban list". When is America going to wake up!
