Lou I had a teacher that once used a similar instrument for corporal punishment in my Grade School. The only difference was there were holes drilled in it because she felt it gave more speed to her blows during a spanking.

Well my old principal had two.
One was called "Little Trouble (a smaller paddle) and the other was called "Big Trouble" which was...yes you guessed it.
My memory is poor but I think I got into "Little Trouble" once. I just remember not wanting to get into "Big Trouble!"
Funnily I ran into him about 10 years ago which would be about 40 years after the fact and he looked exactly the same as I remember!
Guess as a young child everyone over 15 yoa "looks old."

The worst I remember was getting the paddle used on me then knowing when I got home I was going to get another from the parents. I remember once giving a buddy my billfold to help adsorb the blows. I got caught and we both got it without the billfolds.

Belly up to the bar again! I'm so proud of my new BOC pins! That's barmy enough, righto! Have yourself a beaker of beer, a stoop of stout or a litre of lager! You'll never mind the cricket bat after this!

Not much more speed, but definitely much more sting!

Replying more generally, in senior high we had a "good cop/bad cop" principal and assistant principal, respectively. The principal was outgoing and very well liked. The assistant was sullen and about 6'4", and I don't care how tough you thought you were, if you were sentenced to swats, you were coming out with tears in your eyes. I'm talking the hardest kids in the school. I'm glad I never graced the interior of his office. I was a goody two-shoes.

Oh, and BULLY! to another BWOC inductee, and a free round for Lou for a stupendous job on the pins! beercheers

Welcome to the club, Stache. I am reasonably certain the initiation went well this weekend last, though the particulars are a tad hazy. In any event, we have brought another into the barmy fold. Now then Stache, perhaps you would like to stop by the following thread and consider ordering up a club pin or two:

The club pins are here!

Enjoy the madness.

Gentlemen and all concerned,
I hereby submit, for official consideration, my application for the privilege and honor to be a member of the Barmy OFFers Club. I put forth to you my qualifications as being:
1. I have been guilty of many of the points on the charter. Specifically, numbers 1 through 4, 10 (oh yea!) and 19.
2. Even though I have other sims on my computer, I never fly them. I have WOFF and thats all I need.
3. Whenever I listen to classical music, I think to myself, I wonder if I could make a WOFF video with this. I really do.
I humbly ask for your approval,
Jammer28

"Aye!" says I, and I'll have a dram of Aberfeldy 21 on the tab of our soon-to-be newest member of this illustrious group of half-wits. Also, I am right there with you Jammer on the classical music. Now then, to the impending ceremony - where is Robert with 'The Bat'?

After many years of telling myself I am not Barmy and I do not have the credentials to ask for membership into your fine exalted Barmy OFFers Club. I finally admit I could possibly be just a tiny bit on the Barmy side. I deffinatly do have problems with 1, 4, 7, 10 and just not sportscar nuts anybody get the machine gun treatment. The bigger vehicles are two seater or zeps if it is a bus size or bigger. I also have problems with 15. I have been flying OFF since the very first one. I have been a long time lurker on every forum OFF has been on. I sometimes leave the world of WOFF to do other Barmy things, like being crushed in a nice WWII steel tube under the sea, I also fly and build my air cargo and air taxi service in the wilds of Alaska. When not doing on of those three things I fly the Hump in my C-47. I recently found my way back to WOFF VER. 3 do to Lou's fine airial ballet on the WOFF website. I know I,m defiantly Barmy because I have know dedicated myself to the sweaty palmed reality of formation flying to do it right this time around. I promise no more lone wolf tactics. The problem is my mates think I am so Barmy they tend to disappear when I try to fly with them in formation. I weave this way and almost hit one as I pull up or dive. I then weave the other way and the next time I check my six and turn back forward they are gone. What.s up with that? So if you fine Barmy Gentlemen approve my offer to join your fine club I WOULD HUMBLY ACCEPT IT! The drinks are on me

Mr_Dirt;

You said one of the key phrases "The drinks are on me"!
By the way your credentials seem adequate, and the symptoms only get worse over time I might add! Maybe we can help you with that! biggrin

What say you, BWOC gentlemen?

BWOC BWOC BWOC, and aye says I! Mr. Dirt, you are most assuredly qualified, and now that you've opened a tab at the bar you'll no doubt be aces with everyone here. Two pints of our finest stout for yours truly, and the cricket bat for our newest initiate!

Hello! I finally propose my candidature, I sure meet points 3, 15, 16, 14 (with a slight difference in that, often, I found the sky looks just like in WOFF, which is a good point considering that I have FOFF-Feet on Flanders Fields). I'll be honest with the point 19, I buy quite a lot of books, but not all of them are WW1 aviation, but I have quite enough to scare my friends when I said we will play a board game* with my rules (*which, by the way, they bought me. Quite a sign that I talk too much about WW1, no?).

I have let my barmiest side express itself with this little song that I hope will convince you to accept me in your Club. I also hope that the whole meaning has not been lost in translation, or that there are enough francophones here to save me!

What, this man is not a member already? Because he bloody well should be! And I don't know about francophones, but there should be a telephone somewhere in the club.

Now where's the bat when you need it...
