Angela Halliwell, a mom living in South London, filed an official complaint with UK's communication commission about an episode of the beloved, hilariously-named kids show, OOglies, for being evocative of an "ISIS-style beheading."

Beware of the toast.

The episode, titled "Toast Soldiers 1," features an anthropomorphic piece toast throwing a grenade made out of a grape and beheading a hard-boiled egg, which may or may not represent a Western journalist. It's a breakfast-table battle that is the result of eggs systematically destabilizing the toasts' region over decades, with litres and litres of jam being spilled on both sides.

Halliwell told the Daily Mail that by being exposed to the toasts' ISIS-style execution, "Kids could think extreme violence like beheading is normal."

The episode initially aired in 2012, when the toast was perceived to be mere bread, and less of a threat to the comfort and safety of the eggs.

It is very possible that the Ooglies were clairvoyant in anticipating the ISIS threat, or it's simply just a coincidence.

Too much jam has been spilled in this ongoing conflict.

Regardless, the egg community stands united against the toast threat.
