It is hard to believe that a school outlawed a batch of cupcakes a student took to class. In a tribute to soldiers, he put a plastic green soldier on top of every cupcake.
A teacher took all the soldiers away because the little green men had rifles. The rifles could not be removed from the molded men and definitely could not be used to “threaten or scare” anyone.
Imagine what that teacher would have done if their children took the famous coffee commercial to heart: “The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!”
