Joe and I were talking on the phone earlier, and he was relating to me the latest in the follies of him dealing with his stepkids, or as he refers to them, "the children." It seems that the children were being especially bad lately, so much so that he brought his dreaded belt into play . . . Joe believes in the old method of giving a disobediant kid a few sharp whacks across the ass as punishment, you see.
"Hmm, I don't think Doctor Spock would approve of that," I said, with a chuckle.
"Yeah? Well, FUCK Doctor Spock! I'll crack him across his Vulcan ass, too!" was Joe's reply.
"No, not MISTER Spock, dumbass. There was a Doctor Spock that--"
"I fucking know that!" growled Joe. "And you know what?"
"I bet Mr. Spock would approve of me beating their asses when they're bad."
"Because Mr. Spock was really logical and hated things that were illogical. Well, whenever I beat the children, it's usually because they've done something illogical!" said Joe, with smug satisfaction in his voice. "I'm trying to make them act more logically!"
I couldn't argue the logic of that.
