A Cartoon Startle

The comic strip Overboard portrays the lives of two groups of feuding pirates, and usually features the antics of the mice that live on board and the dogs that seem almost human. I found an unexpected startle in it the other day.


How does one discipline a pirate?


For old times' sake, here's a cartoon from the days when spanking was a fairly common subject.

It's always a pleasure.

Just hit me...(pun intended)...shouldn't the cartoon be drawn the other way? Perhaps in a different setting... The guy getting punishment for 'early withdrawal' Think about it.

You could say Hermione, if you are naughty, you can 'bank', on being given a good spanking on your bare bottom.

Thanks for sharing, Hermione! Pirates are cool (and spanked or whipped pirates are even cooler). ;-)

Hmmm. How does one discipline a pirate? I would remove his pants, tie him to the plank and whip his naughty butt with an oar.

Luv the teasing of the first cartoon.
What are they talking about? No, really? Well, I don't believe it!
(Mmmm!)

I miss those days! Comics used to be so much more exciting. :-)

How do you discipline a pirate, very carefully.

Joyce, you are so right!

Hermione said...

I have a few more up my sleeve for you.

Hermione said...

I do too:)

Hermione said...

Glad to hear it.

Hermione said...

Groan!

Hermione said...

Thanks Dee.

Hermione said...

They are indeed. Arrr!

Hermione said...

Kiki, that works for me.

Hermione said...

I thought it was quite special.

Hermione said...

Stay tuned for more.

Hermione said...

Watch out for that left hook:)

Hi, Hermione!

Thanks many, I hadn't run across "Overboard" yet! To answer your question, a pirate must be spanked 'Aarrrrrd!

Well SOMEBODY had to say it.

The bottom cartoon (hee) was done by Dan Rivera, creator of "Sam Swat" and "Spanky Sal!"

Hermione said...

"Aarrrrrd" - of course! Why didn't I think of that?

Thanks for identifying the artist of the second cartoon.
