Wednesday WIN

How times have changed.

This is the paint stirrer that I have known and hated loved all my adult life; it's a pretty effective spanking implement.

Now I find out that the wooden paint stirrer is old technology, as outdated as an eight-track cassette. Here's what modern decorators and spankers are using:

Thanks to David at A View from the Top for bringing me into the 21st century.

Call me old-fashioned, but I don't think I'd like the modern version. Have you tried one? Meow

David said...

While I a guilty of pointing out the progression of technology, I like you and Meow, embrace the old-fashioned version as well. I have always had an affection for wooden implements; clothes-pins rather than clamps, wooden kitchen spoons, broom sticks for spreader bars, etc.

For whatever it is worth, I also prefer the old wooden paint stirrer..(although I do tend to call them the dreaded 'pain sticks')..over the newer ones. But then again I have not had the pleasure of trying a new one yet. I say yet since I am sure the Captain will sooner or later find one to try out. Tee-hee. Wishing you and yours an early but very happy, safe, healthy new year full of joy, love, laughs and prosperity.

Ouch... that one looks painful... but I suppose at least you don't have to worry about splinters. LOL

I'd definitely stick to the old fashioned one :)

Have a wonderful New Years Eve Hermione.

I'm going to agree with everyone the old fashioned is better...that new thing looks has speed holes, after all!

Katia said...

I also agree! It looks like part of a kids train track. I'll stick with the old.

Scunge said...

Is that plastic!? HATE plastic! Only used for discipline on this gal,hate it,hate it,hate it! :(

Hermione said...

I think it's unanimous - we all prefer the tried and true wooden version.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Grrr, why do people have to try to "improve" on the original? It is rarely better, and in this case looks positively evil.
I prefer the wooden one, for ALL uses! Hugs n love, Daisy xxxxxxxxxx

The new looks like a paddle with holes, thus making it more effective. Please do a taste test so to speak, and let us know...
Theold had really poor quality edges that could give splinters

Hermione said...

Daisy - I don't know. And "evil" is the right word for it.

Red - Splinters? I don't know where you get your paint stirrers from, but the ones from Colour Your World are of excellent quality :-)
