...our hero just now realized what the phrase "spare the rod, spoil the child" really means. For years I thought it was some sort of beatnik parenting tip about not spanking your children, all "don't spank them, spoil them!", but today, for no apparent reason, it popped into my head and I realized "oh, wait a minute, it's more like 'if you spare the rod, you will spoil the child'". So, yeah, just a little bit more of the self deprecating human touch you've all come to love from Roll Bama Roll. You're welcome.
