Controlling Children

I’ve heard a number of commercials for a product or method designed to make children behave. I’m not sure why they’re making such a big deal out of it. Back in the forties and fifties, my parents had a patent on it.

They would say one of two things.

1. “If you don’t behave, we’ll sell you to the Gypsies.”

2. “We’ve reserved a spot for you at Morganza” (which was a reform school in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania).

There was nothing else my parents had to say.

Come to think opf it, I have nothing more to say either.
