    •  Exactly. Who counts? Does the kid say, (4+ / 0-)

      "I was spanked 20 times," and dad says, "No, it was only 9, 10 at the most!"

      I mean, of all the ridiculous things to write into law.

      "Your honor, I submit that the father spanked the child 11 times, not 10! Ten shall be the number and the count shall be 10 and 10 only."

      "You're a newt!"

      "I am not a newt!"

        A mean one... with nasty, big, pointy teeth and a vicious streak a mile wide...

        Certainly you would have to spank a child like that more than a mere ten times... At least eleven times or maybe twelve... I'm not sure... Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh

          letting them know what was funny when I was a kid.
          Still awesome laughter after all these years.
          Peace and Blessings!

          Ten shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be ten. Nine shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count eight, excepting that thou then proceedeth to ten. Eleven is right out. Once the number ten, being the number of the counting, be reached, then releaseth thou the Holy Paddling Stick and remindeth the child, that being naughty in Kansas' sight causeth the bruises.
