(Our very own) National Cupcake Day

There’s a vicious war being waged on cupcakes throughout the land, so it was only a matter of time until someone took a stand to save the precious treats!

Did you know some school districts don’t allow parents to send their kids to school with a homemade lunch? Did you know that there are certain places where the Happy Meal is banned? Did you know that trans-fats are illegal in NY restaurants, but not in NY homes? Did you know that many school districts have banned the cupcake – the symbol of classroom birthday celebrations since George Washington still had teeth. (Ok, slight hyperbole there.)

And so my American Government class today took a radical stand today by sponsoring “National Cupcake Day” – because our school still allows them. Our statement was simple:

No food police. Let’s champion personal responsibility, individual freedom, and parents’ rights.  And so the containers of cupcakes rolled in all day until we gorged ourselves and rolled out after class.

We had a total of 185 cupcakes for only 19 people. No, we didn’t eat them all. After we ate all we could, the class members were sent out as lobbyists and cupcake ambassadors, to spread the sweetness around campus and inform the happy recipients about the plight of students everywhere who could be stared down by a principal by having such contraband on school grounds.

So remember to fight for cupcake rights!
