7-year-old suspended for allegedly shaping pastry like a gun

A seven-year-old has been suspended from school for two days for shaping a breakfast pastry into a form a teacher identified as a gun. Josh Welch, of Baltimore, says he wanted to shape his strawberry tart into a mountain, but "it didn’t look like a mountain really." (We appreciate the creativity but play with broccoli, Josh! Pastries are delicious!) A sharp-eyed teacher reportedly got "visibly mad" and sent Josh home for two days, saving the other students from absolutely no threat whatsoever.
