    School confiscates third-grader’s cupcakes topped with toy soldiers

    You have GOT to be kidding me.

    In the latest incident of anti-gun hysteria to erupt in a school setting, officials at an elementary school in small-town Michigan impounded a third-grader boy’s batch of 30 homemade birthday cupcakes because they were adorned with green plastic figurines representing World War Two soldiers.
    The school principal branded the military-themed cupcakes “insensitive” in light of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, reports Fox News Radio.
    “It disgusted me,” Casey Fountain, the boy’s father, told Fox News. “It’s vile they lump true American heroes with psychopathic killers.”
    Fountain explained that his wife had made the cupcakes. His son, Hunter, helped decorate them. The following morning, Fountain’s wife brought the taboo treats to the school’s front office, where the secretary reportedly remarked favorably on their appearance.
    “About 15 minutes later the school called my wife and told her they couldn’t serve the cupcakes because the soldiers had guns,” Fountain told Fox News. “My wife told them to remove the soldiers and serve the cupcakes anyway — and I believe she may have used more colorful language.”

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    A a lot has happened since the last update. School officials agreed to have the soldiers in place, but only if they weren't bullying - they had to demonstrably be outgunned.

    Update 2: The dead mangled corpses of massacred soldiers atop the muffins may be accurate, but don't promote district policy.

    Update 3: Having agreed soldiers on both sides of this conflict, if there was one, should be unarmed, now there are two soldiers atop each cupcake making slapping motions.

    Update 4: Two soldiers overwhelm the weight bearing tolerance of a cup cake dome. Both are presumed dead in a sink hole. District wide counseling recommended.

    Update 5: Cupcake re-engineered. Trial run with selected parents for this afternoon.

    Update 6: The top of the cupcake still sags with the weight of two unarmed soldiers. Being a low lying area, depression in cupcake top declared protected wetland.

    Update 7: Cupcake dome engineering success - now it's a pot pie.

    Update 8: The sugar content of the pot pie, previously known as cupcake, has exceeded allowable tolerances. Food lobbyists declare war on each other in the name of their clients.

    Update 9: Kid who originally brought cupcakes with plastic soldiers to school graduates MIT all these years later, goes to work for a space exploration start-up company to find a way to escape this nutty planet.

    ------

    Even trying to be goofy I can't match the news today.

    Maybe the real problem is that the principal & office staff made the cupcakes "go away..." so that the students wouldn't have to deal with scary, tiny guns in 2" soldiers's hands...

    I bet if it were little Acorn workers on the cupcakes they would have been alright.

    "It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
    -Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

    I'm thinking they should have been decorated with monkeys from a Barrel of Monkeys. But I'd bet someone would get offended at that too, namely the idiot monkeys in charge.
