How to ruin a little boy's birthday

All this 9-year-old third grader in Michigan did was bring the cupcakes his mom made  for him to school on his birthday.

The principal of the school ended up calling the kid's dad about it.

Seems the boy was in trouble for bringing in the cupcakes because they had little plastic toy Army men on them.

The Army men needed to come off those cupcakes immediately because the principal felt it was insensitive.

Really?

A) I think every little boy in America has at one time or another played with little green Army men and understood the difference between crazy people that shoot others in schools and members of our military.

B) That principal might not have the freedom to kick cupcakes out of the classroom were it not for the very real version of what stands atop those cupcakes.

Way to ruin the kid's birthday at school...and a big DUH to you Ms. Principal!

We'll discuss as part of the "Tell-a-Friend" Tuesday PhilCast today.
