Canes - not just for discipline

Two unrelated news stories involving canes:

Two thieves grabbed an 82-year-old woman's purse as she and a companion were walking along the street. Her 89-year-old friend used her cane to dent the hood of the robbers' car before they could drive away. Police later found the car with the cane marks and based on a description given by the victims, arrested the culprits.

Naughty getaway car!

For the first time ever, England has hosted the European Canne de Combat Championships. Young people from around the world perform acrobatic exercises involving combat with canes. "Some of them can jump in the air and pass the cane between their legs, catch the cane in their other hand and strike you... Then they'll drop down into a full split and spring up and hit you again before you even know what's going on."

Now that's caning!

So she whacked the hood of a couple of "hoods" hmmmm? Good for her! Maybe the judge will allow her a go at their "trunks" next where it'll do more good!

Loved to have seen the old lady use the cane.

I'd never heard of the Canne de Combat.

Thanks Hermione.


The main alternative use that I have for canes is to tie plants to. That's right I use canes to prevent bending over :p

Hermione, as my 'nome de plume', suggests. the appropriate use in my humble opinion when using a cane, is upon my naughty ladies bare bottom. Wearing garter-belt and stockings, and her knickers, down around her ankles, with plenty of "Ooohs", coming from her lips, that are a delight to hear.

I whole heartedly agree with Sara on this one - especially after this week - 4 times :(

I am phobic about canes.... :(

Hermione said...

Sara - I agree completely.

Mindset - Welcome! Yes, they're the best kind.

Tex - LOL! That's a fine idea for a sentence.

Ronnie - I hadn't heard of it either. Maybe it hasn't made its way across hte pond yet.

Prefectdt - That's what i use them for too. You can't have naughty plants with their bottoms in the air.

Six - That's an appropriate use too.

Kiwi - Four! OMG your poor bottom!

Daisy - Really? They look far too much for me, except possibly applied lightly.
