I love looking at old cartoons. It's amazing how sensitive we have become to certain issues like Spanking. It was nothing to get walloped when I was young, but now you would lose your kids in no time flat for just considering to do it.

Myself, I think that the old phrase "Mama spank," is hilarious, it's so weird.

Speaking of sensitivity, beyond our newfound squeamishness about spanking, this is actually a cartoon about a kid who's going to get electrocuted...which some people might find offensive! :)

Fuck that. My kids are still getting spanked. Even if they're good.

ESPECIALLY if they're good! Good babies come in last. You need to teach them to be wicked from the very beginning.
