You'll Put an Eye Out with That

Kitchen staff at England's Castle View School have been ordered to no longer cut flapjacks, or what Americans call granola, into triangles. The order came after one student was hit in the face by a flapjack thrown by another student. Staff must now cut the flapjacks into squares or rectangles. Officials say the triangular flapjacks are a safety risk, but others note that square flapjacks have an even greater number of pointy edges.
