    Apologies if this is a D_B, but a grade school in Texas banned a third-grade girl from lunch and recess for a week for the grand crime of ... having a Jolly Rancher with her lunch.

    Original story, with the school claiming they are just following Texas law: http://www.khou.com/news/Candy-Gets-Third-Grader-A-Weeks-Detention-93033319.html

    Update, with Texas Ag Department telling the school to get a life: http://www.khou.com/news/State-responds-to-Jolly-Rancher-incident-93171189.html

    When we had to make weight, my wrestling coach used to give us Jolly Ranchers and tell us to spit out the juice.

    And yet school administrators get plenty of cash to make idiotic decisions.
