Beware of Burrito

I can think of a reason why a giant burrito might be a hazard in schools. Beano would solve that problem.

A 30-inch burrito was mistaken for a weapon when a student brought it to a New Mexico middle school school wrapped in foil and then covered with a white t-shirt. The huge burrito was to be used by the student as a prop for a school project. Authorities were called. Armed policemen were put on rooftops, streets were blocked off and the school was locked down as the school was searched for the threatening item.

"The drama ended two hours later when the suspicious item was identified as a 30-inch burrito filled with steak, guacamole, lettuce, salsa and jalapenos."

(That burrito sounds delicious!)
