Don’t Hide The Belt

Story by
Aaron Morrison

On Monday, USA Today insinuated that children who are spanked have an increased chance of becoming the world’s top CEOs and power brokers. This news certainly comes too late for most college students.

Honestly, how many of us would have taken a few more spankings to have the master corner-office suite, stock options, and a Rolls Royce?

I certainly was spanked when I was growing up. But hell, don’t I now wish I could have been beaten nearly unconscious just before I went off to college. Perhaps I’d have that 4.0 GPA.

The very suggestion that there is a correlation between getting the belt occasionally and becoming the head of a major corporation is a bit absurd, but not totally far-fetched.

While I’m no CEO or power broker, I certainly can attest to the power of a good beating. I remember the time I was spanked in the first grade (pants down with a wooden yardstick from the garage) because a girl hit me and I pushed her back. Of course when the girl told our teacher, I was the one sent home with a “bad news” report for my parents to sign, which clearly stated that I had pushed a chubby, brunette girl during recess.

My mom spanked me good for that one. And while I was angry that nobody believed the girl hit me first, I certainly avoided all potentially physical altercations with the opposite sex from then on. Perhaps this means I’ll be less likely to beat my wife when I get married. But I’ve digressed.

Where was I? Oh yes, pubescent beatings and CEOs.

According to the USA Today article, of the 20 CEOs they interviewed over a few months, all 20 over-achievers admitted to being spanked during their youth. However, most felt being spanked as an adolescent had little to do with the successes in their careers.

That’s complete bullshit.

If I’m going to be beat for most, if not all, of my childhood, something good better come out of it.

In fact, I urge you all to tell your younger brothers and sisters, nieces and nephews, cousins and Godchildren to stop hiding daddy’s belt. Just hand it to him when he comes home from work. Tell him you pushed Suzy Bluesy on the playground today at recess. And don’t forget to mention she broke her neck. That’ll get you a real good whooping.

During the spanking, snotty nose and tears, think of the paid vacation to tropic islands, the country club memberships and expense accounts. It’s all worth it, right?

Aah … Publicity stunts love is in the air. Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green! Totally, um, surprising. The couple, who’ve been together since 2004 (off-and-on), have decided to re-engage themselves in what’s probably just a publicity push for Fox’s newest, box-office poison Jonah Hex. megan fox naked

The so called “leaked” photos are just one photo. You can’t tell it’s Megan Fox. The photo is taken yards away. Fox is standing next to a really overweight guy in a glass case. Thea picture is washed out and barely recognizable. megan fox naked photos

I am soooo excited for the Diablo Cody-penned flick that stars Megan Fox as a high-school cheerleader who kills boys and Amanda Seyfried (the eldest daughter on Big Love) as her BFF. And today Laremy sent me a link to the “red band” trailer, which I guess in filmophile speak is the trailer that is NOT suitable for all audiences. It’s even better than the previous trailers I’ve seen for this flick. It’s not embeddable, but you can watch it here. The screen-grab of a naked Megan Fox is above. Don’t say I never do anything nice for you guys. megan fox naked

"We're supposed to be desperately in love, like Sid and Nancy, John and Yoko ... Eminem and Kim," he said. "Though I tried as hard as I could to make her laugh and have fun with her. I think we got on pretty well." In one scene in a bar, Monaghan described a scenario where he has to roll up on another gentleman who is talking to Fox's character, and the actress asked what she should call him when he comes over and is about to hit the guy. "I said, call me Slim," he said. " 'Cuz that's who I am essentially. I was playing Slim Shady and trying as hard as I could to be Slim Shady."
