We’ve all felt a mixture of hilarity and disgust hearing about the case of Josh Welch, the Baltimore second-grader who was suspended two days for nibbling a breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun (see March 5 story).
I hadn’t thought of the humble tart as a canvas for artistic endeavor, but why not? So I got several boxes of Pop-Tarts and passed them around the IMO Peoria art staff, asking each one to provide a Pop-Tart gun. I think you’ll enjoy the results. The designers certainly enjoyed eating the leftovers!
I think there are the makings of a whole new artistic genre here. What the IMO artists did just scratches the surface. Why, I’d love to see a Vickers water-cooled machine gun with tripod. Or maybe a Tower musket. The possibilities are endless.
Post your gun tarts on the SGN Facebook page. But kids, don’t do it at school!
