"Oh, hard plastic and metal lunchboxes are too dangerous! Somebody might hit someone with them! Here, kids, have these soft vinyl ones instead!"

Well, ha, ha ha!

Wow, unbelievable. And on the same web site, they also have a campaign against lead in candy. Even more incredible!

The deadly secret in my lunch box was always that my lunch sucked.

Damn, mine was just packed full of centipedes.

At least lead is sweet like candy.

It gives whole a new meaning to heavy metal lunch box (which, by the way, I think would make an excellent name for a band).

I'm curious as to who decided it was a good idea to put lead in lunchboxes in the first place? Seems like that was the first incredibly stupid mistake, not correcting it immediately was the second.

What I really need to know is whether my brown paper bag is going to give me cancer or cause my arms to fall off or hair to turn pink?

Well, we've got mercury in most fish, so why not lead in lunchboxes.

Most school cafeterias have more nutrious lunches now-a-days anyways. Of course in this day and age of Media Fear(tm), you can't be too careful. Boo! Be scared!

I was thinking this had to have something to do with the deadly secret of space.
