Did you have food fights at your school?

I didn’t. Do these actually happen?

I remember one food fight in high school. It was very short-lived, and I left when I saw what was happening.

All the time.

I remember in Elementary school all the boys would try to start food fights….It only happened once tho, A boy that sat at the table behind me yelled out “FOOD FIGHT!” and threw his open milk carton to another boy at the table in front of me which resulted in retaliation and milk raining down on everyone. I’ll admit, I took advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity and threw my chocolate milk at this spoiled little brat whom I hated so very much…And realized that revenge is indeed…Sweet.

Grades 3,4, & 5 lost their recces for a whole week…totally worth it tho.

Yep, I’ve been involved in 5 of them. They’re so much fun. The food fight that happened during my freshman year in highschool was the best. It lasted 30 minutes while the staff tried finding the students who started it.
I found it to be much better than dodgeball, because everybodies free game.
But then again walking home covered in macaroni and cheese mixed with mashed potatoes, and who knows what else is no fun. Plus 2 weeks in- house suspension sucks.

I can remember one or two. I hate food fights, and run the other way when they start. One time at a Mexican restaurant on my birthday they surprised me from behind with cream slammed in my face and I was so fucking pissed, I wiped it off an smeared it on my husband (boyfriend at the time) thinking he set it up. Recently I was at a Mexican restaurant in MS of alllaces and they did the same thing to a birthday girl. I don’t find food being thrown around funny or fun at all.

We had one in elementary school I was absent with a cold on the day it happened.

Lunch was basically put into federal prison-style lockdown for the next three weeks. We had to sit three chairs apart from each other, alternating between boys and girls, and we weren’t allowed to talk to each other. We had to all get up at the same time to throw food away and we were escorted back to our seats by the school secretary.

Another one happened when I was in 8th grade. I was present (on the opposite side of the cafeteria, and I didn’t participate) and the whole thing lasted about 3 minutes before the principal and his G-men showed up to suppress the brief gastronomical uprising. The perpetrators disappeared I’m serious.

In hindsight, it seems like I’ve gone to some hardass schools 0_o

Never as a student and never as a teacher. What silly behavior.

Yup, the teachers eventually resorted to force feeding us that filthy unappetising slop. Ewwwww!! :¬(

Yes, and the result was similar to what @Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard described.

Aw man. I feel like I missed out on a vital piece of childhood.
