Word of the Day - Tawse
Tawse: "A leather strap slit into strips at the end and used especially for disciplining children."
Per Wikipedia: "A tawse (the plural of Scots taw, a thong of a whip) is an implement for physical punishment, called tawsing. It was used for educational and domestic dicipline, primariliy in Scotland. Scottish schools used the tawse to beat pupils on the palms. In the 1980s a European court judgment led to its use being banned in UK schools in 1998."
Ouch! Can you imagine?
