Ouch Corporal punishment was still allowed in 1985 (in the UK) when this cartoon was first published in my book Microholics. I'm sure many of you can relate to "the bad old days" when teachers would use any excuse to cane you!

They didn't use the cane in Scotland. We had a thing called the Tawse, a leather belt usually spilt at the end into tails. Not being on the receiving end that much but oh my, did it sting! Great memory jogger Richard.

I remember through Elementary and Junior High School. Almost every Teacher had a paddle. Most were customized with little holes drilled in for better stinging. Lol! For real, I think some of them enjoyed swatting us. Some even gave names for there paddles. Usually a 2 by 4 with a handle carved out in it. Yup I remember those days for sure. I remember Mr. Thomas,The Gym Teacher, You didn,t want to get a swat from him! Thank god I had 3 older brothers to tell me about him Lol!

The biggest problem (among many) in the Canadian educational system is that students have lost all respect for teachers, fellow students, and school property. Call me a fossil, but I wouldn't mind a return to those unenlightened days of corporal punishment in cases where it is truly justified.
