When I was in junior high our shop class did a project where we each produced a paddle in competition for the assistant principal who was dean of boys. Well, one day my mom noticed these round welts on the back of my legs when I changed into shorts after school. When I told her the dean's paddle did it because of the holes drilled in it to cut wind resistance she got furious. She marched down to the school the very next day to give him a piece of her mind. When she came back, she had the paddle in question and an hour of instruction on it's use under her belt. I was so glad...it replaced the baseball bat she usually used to discipline us.

I kind of like the fact that as barbaric as we can be sometimes, we'll never be as bad as those who mutilate female genitals.

My last year of High School I was with a group of kids who were laughing at our History Teacher's shoes. They were brown shoes that he used black shoe polish on. When the bell rang he ran up behind me and shoved me into the kids in front of me. Said I wasn't moving fast enough. That was after I told him do it again now that I was facing him. He declined. I would have pounded that pointy head down between those fcuked up shoes. He said "Son, you think you're a tough guy. When you go out into the real world, you'll find out differently". He was so wrong. LOL

So, you've always been a dickhead? I thought it was late onset...type 2.

The back-story is kind of funny. I had an experience unique to a single person each year in that my paddle had won the competition. That meant that it was the active paddle for the year, not just hanging on his wall (which was covered, each paddle had a little brass plate with the year on it). He knew about that when he retired it and gave it to my mother. I know that because he pointed out the irony right before he used it on me.

What would warrant the use of wooden device on a Junior in high school? I pre-date you and it was extremely rare that you would see violence on a student, even in my time. The worst I saw was when a Teacher slammed a 5LB history book down on the head of a black kid who was sleeping in his class. I swear that his burr head collapsed like a deflated inner tube before resuming its normal football shape. He sure sat up straight after that.

This deserves a second look. Because of the Type 2 remark. So, did this paddling excite you? Did you do things on purpose to get those knickers pulled down after class? Were you prone over the teacher's tent like lap? Which one were you?

Are you the Caucasian? Oh no. Not the other one? Mea Culpa

He had one of those pictures of the see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil chimps under the glass at the corner of his desk. We'd have to put both hands on the glass and look at the picture while he attempted to launch us over the desk and out the door. He could do it too.

Maybe that's where I found my love of flying.

This is an absolute noshitter. He had to go around 340-350 and you only usually needed one reminder. There were no fights on campus. Period.

It's not the bong so much as what goes in it, ask Fearless he'll school you.

So? How do you score 20 runs inside 9 innings anyhow?
Boston? They've always been a bunch of f/ags anyhow.

Hey, Bruser, I'm sure your read this one before..

""A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team’s bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.

“Oh, I really liked it,” she replied,“especially the tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.”

Dumbfounded, her date asked,“What do you mean?”

“Well, they flipped a coin. One team got it, and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was,‘Get the quarter back! Get the quarter back!’ I’m like, Hello-o-o? It’s only 25 cents!”"

..I wish I had written this joke by myself..

That's a good sign of a healthy ocean. Too bad they're on the Red Sea side and not the Persian Gulf where all the bodies washing downriver to the sea from Syria need cleanup.

It's for people with an attention span.

Manning had an amazing game, he really is Superman. Can't wait to see the Dolphins make Cleveland look good on Sunday.(owwwww! I bit my tongue in cheek)
