UK School Bans Triangle Shaped Flapjacks

Just when you thought that stupid and insane laws were reserved only for the US, my boss pointed out that in the UK, a Canvey Island school has banned triangle shaped flapjacks.

Catering staff at the school have been told only to serve square or rectangular flapjacks. […] A spokesman for the Health and Safety Executive said: “We often come across half-baked decisions taken in the name of health and safety, but this one takes the biscuit.

The fact that they have a ‘three point guide’ to flapjacks as the sidebar, and the article is fraught with puns makes me unconvinced this isn’t an Onion story.
