We don't spank in the Thingy family. It just seems like a silly way to teach children to behave, using the easy way to control a child. Hey, I'm no saint. I used my mother power over my own child back in the day when I was young and stupid and tired and stupid. Fortunately, I've learned.
But.... or should I say, butt.... this kid. if I was anywhere near this obnoxious little tyke, his ass would be a lovely shade of rose. I just do not find him funny in any way. I know, kids are kids, boys are boys. I cannot see a girl doing this. Boys and men find farts and toots funny. I'm not sure why. It's not something I ponder much over, but it is an interesting social behavior I'm sure toot doctors have studied.
I have a feeling kid's Dad laughed his ass off and probably high fived his odorous spawn. Perhaps they had a toot off. What would Thingy do with a kid like this? Who cares. He's not mine, I say with relief.
