Big Burrito Leads to School Lockdown
It's not what it sounds like! ;-) In fact, it's sillier.
A concerned citizen spotted a boy walking into school carrying a large object wrapped in tinfoil, covered by a T-shirt. The school went into lockdown for four hours. Concerned parents flocked to the school. And... the object turned out to be a 30-inch burrito, which he had made to get extra credit. They only found out what the object was when they gathered students in the auditorium and told them what all the fuss was about. After the meeting, the kid went up to the principal (probably thinking "Oh, no, am I going to get in trouble for this?") and told her about the burrito.
I'm glad the adult was observant, but surely there is a better way to handle this sort of thing... You know, like asking, "Hey, kid! What IS that?!" Or getting an authority figure to ask him.
