Sunshine Cheez-It Crackers - Walmart.com

Nabisco Ritz Crackers, 13.7 oz: Snacks, Cookies & Chips : Walmart.com

Unless of course Ritz is totally different in the UK.
Ritz in the UK are salted crackers, but can be cheese flavoured..
Primula cheese apread is food of the gods, I buy it regularly here in the UK, usually at £1 a tube, and I love all the flavoured varieties.

Don't know whether they still sell them but they used to sell Ritz sandwiched together with cheese.

Yeah, that's pretty daft.

Also the school in Louisiana that's suspended a rasta kid because he's got dreadlocks for religious reasons.

A huge WTF for sure, I have no experience with such weapons, but all too obviously the strength of a 70-80lb girl both to hold/direct the weapon and to deal with the recoil is totally insufficient. I found that story quite sickening, obviously for the family of the instructor, but also the girl, who has just shot a man in the face at almost point blank range. She is going to be scarred for life!

It is hard to even have sympathy for the instructor. But this training kids to use such weapons does not seem to be a rare event. Idiot parents maybe messed up their kid for life.

Cannot comprehend why anyone would even want a Uzi.

Second Amendment rights! Obviously the Founding Fathers fully intended us to have unrestricted access to machine pistols.

Ironically in this case I don't think much "training" was involved. That sort of establishment is more about the thrill of the experience - you grab the weapon and loose off a few hundred rounds with a military spec weapon just for the thrill of it. ..... What could possibly go wrong?
