You're on a real roll, Ray. Some very funny jokes in these posts.
that is no joke, i went to catholic school in grade school and some of those nuns loved to whack us across the knuckles with those and their pointers when we acted up, or if it was really bad they would take ya in the closet and put ya across their knee. they would probably be in jail today, i think some of them were some angry people.
guess maybe it made us better people or maybe just a little tougher,It wasn't just nuns. I got my hide tanned by CA and TN public school teachers more times than I can remember. Thick half-meter sticks were their weapons of choice, though homemade paddles and leather straps were used, too. One teacher whacked me over the head with a dictionary. First time I actually saw swirling stars. I thought it was fascinating.
Trust me, I deserved most of it for being disruptive. I was so friggin' bored. Can't happen today, but it was normal for me growing up in the 60's and early 70's.
