    Have we reached the nadir in the sissification of America? The game of Tag has been banned at a Colorado school because some parents complained it was harrassing to their kids.


    The future of our country is in good hands--as long as our children don't have to face any adversity.

    Tag. You're it, Kirk. .... Loser!
  3. Good. I'm glad they banned tag. "You're it"? No, we're all it. We're all part of the problem and part of the solution. You don't just slap somebody and run away, handing off all responsibility to the next person. That's not the way things work, and we shouldn't teach our children that's the way problems our solved.

    this isn't freeze tag, right?

    And watch it, Ace, or I'll break out the dodge balls.

    Kids are such pussies nowadays.

    We were so much tougher when I was a kid. In grade school we played dodge ball with croquet balls.

    Kids are kids, they learn how to be pussies from their parents.

    You played with balls? In my day, we played with jagged rocks and broken Colt 45 bottles. Knocked out or not out, that was our rule.

    Also, we played Spin the Bottle, but whoever the bottle pointed to, you had to fight him.

    Pussy. At birthday parties we bobbed for french fries.

    Please, Nancy. French fries you can eat. Try that with M-80s. That's the only way to celebrate someone's sixth birthday.

    A parent who complained probably had Ben-Gay put in their jockstrap as a freshman ... on the chess team.
