Poll violators watch out!

If you live in certain parts of the Philippines at least, don't mess around with polling.

...A military commander said violators of election laws in the province would be subjected to spanking with the use of wooden paddles.
Lt. Col. Edgar Catu, head of the Army’s 40th Infantry Battalion, said the provincial peace and order council came up with the proposed punishment at a meeting on Wednesday.

Candidates and local leaders “all agreed that election violators will be spanked,” Catu said.

I had to laugh. This is true by the way, Google sent me the link. I thought about all the alleged violations and interference in national elections including the US Trump triumph (not that I'm taking sides)...but just imagine if all those who'd been mischievous got paddled. And just look at the size of the paddles! :)

Have a good week.

Wow, is this real Ronnie? Interesting. Hmm, I wonder if it will be much of a deterrent?


Hermione said...

Just think what would have happened to the Russians if the US had that rule instituted. LOL!

Great find! Thanks, Ronnie.

Best to stick to our own paddles. Those would be a strong deterrent
Bottoms up

Yikes! ... they look more like bats than paddles ... repurposed cricket bats? ... nj

Wow, those paddles are huge.

*Wonders which one of these poll committee members is a secret spanko."
This goes along with one of Hermoine's recent blog entries. LOL

Hi Ronnie! :) YIKES! I wonder how effective that is? Loud and clear message, it seems! My guess is that if we had that here, there would certainly be a whole lot of well deserved spanking going on! Interesting! Thanks for sharing. Many hugs,

❤️Katie xoxo

I would love the opportunity to use a paddle on a few of the horrible people swirling around our election mess.

Katie - I think very effective with one of those paddles. Thanks.

Ronnie - I know what you mean. I'd like to with some of our politicians. Thanks.
