The 8-year-old Baltimore boy who was suspended for chewing his Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun was awarded a lifetime membership with the National Rifle Association Wednesday night.
A 7-year-old Baltimore boy was suspended Friday for two days after he shaped his breakfast pastry into what appeared to be a gun, his dad said. Josh Welch, who suffers from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, told Fox Baltimore that he was trying to shape the tart into a mountain.
"Everyone keeps asking me why I did it," he said. "I don't know why I did it. ... I wish people would stop asking me about it. It'll probably go on for 45 years or something."
"It was already a rectangle, and I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top and it kinda looked like a gun but it wasn't," he told Fox Baltimore at the time of the suspension. "All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain."
