I attended a pretty buttoned-up Catholic grade school and high school, so no major catastrophes ever took place in our cafeterias. This was in stark contrast to the TV shows I watched, where nearly every cafeteria saw at least one food fight per season. I lived vicarious through television characters who could launch hot dog buns through the air like footballs. Of course, this was before YouTube. Now, I can live vicariously through real students. And so can you!
Was there ever a food fight in your cafeteria? Did you participate?
Highland High School
This fight in Arizona took place three days before summer vacation began. And you thought kids counted down to the end of school? Imagine the poor teachers.
Apopka High School
Short and sweet.
Armstrong High School
As this YouTube user asks, "Who knew tacos could decorate a room so nicely?"
Horizon High School
If you look closely, you can see full bottles of water flying across the room. Which seems like less fun than, say, a hot dog bun.
Joel Barlow High School

And perhaps the most famous food fight of all ...
