I tried to find a photo of a menacing muffin to better illustrate this story. It's not possible. Muffins are just inherently wimpy-looking.
What is wrong with people? An NYU student brought razor-filled muffins to class this week. According to the New York Sun:
The muffin was baked for a philosophy course. According to a spokesman for the university, John Beckham, a student brought in the booby-trapped confection along with several normal muffins as part of a project on absurdism, a philosophy based on the belief that the universe is irrational and meaningless.[...]
"A friend of mine, another student, picked them up and said, 'Hey, there's free muffins,' and being college students, we never turn down free food," Mr. Jarosch said yesterday in an interview. "The muffin I happened to grab had razor blades in it."Somehow I don’t think that’s what Kierkegaard and Camus had in mind. However, it’s worth pointing out that The Razor Muffins would be a great name for a metal band.
He said he was lucky: "I spit them out before they cut. It could have been a lot worse, there's no doubt about it," Mr. Jarosch said.
