Flapjack - a serious Health & Safety issue

Flapjack - a serious Health & Safety issue

Google flapjack. Go on.

Scroll down and the 4th item is not a recipe but a news story. "School bans dangerous triangular flapjack". Seriously.

Apparently in March this year, a school decreed that triangular flapjack could no longer be served after an incident in which a pupil threw a piece which hit another pupil. Perhaps they were playing flapjack frisbee? Conducting a groundbreaking experiment into projectiles? I have no idea. I particular like the quote from the Guardian's report of the story:

"A spokesman for Castle View school said: "I can confirm that the texture and shape of the flapjacks were reviewed following an isolated accident last week."

An isolated incident of flapjack aggression. Good grief. Apparently, flapjack at the school is now only to be square or rectangular. Can someone enlighten me as to why this is less dangerous than a triangular flapjack? Perhaps triangular flapjack can reach a higher velocity than a square or rectangular piece.
