You have got to be fricking kidding me! A school in Essex has banned triangular shaped flapjacks due to sharp edges! A child had to go home after being hit with one. Apparently, the rectangular ones are still safe. WTF? Surely four corners are far more dangerous than three?
I have to admit I’ve tried making them before and they were hard as rock and couldn’t get them out of the pan, but I hardly think they can be classed as dangerous?
What are they going to ban next? I can think about a dozen things that have sharper edges than a flapjack or that would hurt more if hit by one. I imagine getting hit by an apple thrown by a member of the Cricket Team would hurt a lot!
OMG and cutlery! Can you imagine the damage someone could do with a teaspoon? *note the sarcasm*
I work in education and over the years have seen health and safety getting more and more bonkers. Can’t these people who put these rules in place see how ridiculous they’re being? I’ve seen everything from Conkers, Lip Balm, Plasters, Boys Ties and British Bull dog banned.
I would love to know what happened to the kid that threw it?
Have you seen any other ridiculous examples of Health and Safety gone mad?
