Sold only to the teaching profession for use in the classroom.

I'll bet. :D

What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires -- desires of which he himself is often unconscious.

I've mentioned the tawse before from time to time, but I just had to share that particular document. You can still buy tawses and such, but in an ironic twist of history this is the one purpose for which you cannot buy them.

Ever read Borstal Boy by Brendan Behan? His memoir of what it was like in the Borstal (reform school). IIRC, the 1950s.

There might have been some rough stuff, but regular caning was emphatically not part of the regime in the Borstal.

At one point the Borstal Boys get to play footie with public (prep) school boys who were regularly caned. The Borstal boys were quite shocked.

Six of the best was a class privilege. The very best, and too good for some ruffian.

Errrr ... it is well known in the cannon fancier fraternity.

Actually I searched for the name on the receipt.

Fuck you AA. You will die horribly in an unusual lift accident. It will take hours, nay, weeks, with no hope of useful medication... :)
