    As I sit here I'm at my desk eating these Mikado Daim things. They're very tasty, but also a far more potent weapon when you think about it; poke in the eye and BAM.

    Caterers at Castle View School in Canvey Island, Essex, have been told instead to cut their flapjacks into squares or rectangles.
    I'd love to know which professional twit made this decision... why not just punish the child for throwing something they shouldn't rather than complicate the issue? And last time I checked, squares and rectangles have 4 corners rather than 3... A higher probability of hurting someone even more surely? What will they suggest next? Hexagon shape?

    Triangle shaped flapjacks are lethal. Just think how lethaler they would be with four (or more) corners.

    Brill To the best of my knowledge I've never had a biscuit thrown at me (touchwood), but I am pretty sure any shape would hurt hitting my face!

    Just make the flapjacks tastier, discouraging the thrower - unless of course they're some kind of flapjack-hating numpty... certainly wouldn't catch me throwing perfectly good flapjack.
